Margaret The Magnificent: We Desperately Need More Leaders Like Her

Margaret Thatcher (1925 – 8 April 2013) Thatcher was the first — and still only — female prime minister in Britain's history. She rescued Britain from ruin & laid the groundwork for an extraordinary economic renaissance, during her 11 year term.
