Margaret Thatcher RIP

I will have a column out over the next day or so, but here are my immediate thoughts on the passing of Margaret Thatcher.

Having grown up in the UK, I'm personally aware of Margaret Thatcher's importance to modern Britain. She was, in short, a great Prime Minister who lead her country away from the economic abyss and towards a vibrant, sustained and broadly shared prosperity. Without her, Britain would have collapsed in confidence to become a second tier state. Without her, Britain would have yielded to terrorism and foreign intimidation (Falklands and the IRA).

Thatcher allowed the UK to shape its modern destiny for the better.

She was one of the greats and the objective eye of history will remember her as such.
