Lady Margaret Thatcher - Iron Lady Forever RIP
by Helene Malmsio
The famous "Iron Lady" Margaret Thatcher died today, and I want to pay some respect for an outstanding woman in the political arena.
Born October 13, 1925 - Died April 8, 2013
She was voted into the position of Prime Minister in the 1979 when most women still thought a career highlight was to be a teacher or nurse, and most women (like myself) settled for being secretaries or shop assistants.
I was amazed by this woman who took over the UK way back then. It took another 30 years before Australia appointed (only by default) a woman for Prime Minister.
The bottom line is that while she was a career politician who wanted to do nothing else but live for politics, I doubt that she ever imagined she would or could rise to this position.
But in 1975 her party was filled with gutless wonders with no vision or balls, and she literally ended up head of the party because no-one else was prepared to put their career on the line in that role at that time.
It was assumed she would fail, the party would lose the election, and they would just move on to getting back to business like usual with a man at the helm.
They were not prepared for the Iron Lady. No one was - lol!
From 1979-1990 she led England through those painful years of change, with an uncompromising style expressed so well by her famous phrase:
“You turn if you want to. The lady’s not for turning.”

It is sad that the end of her tenure was marred by so much garbage, but it seems to be almost mandatory that great people end up being practically thrown out with the rubbish when their former allies decide that their 'use by date' has come.
But what truly appalls and horrifies me is the image I see today of people dancing in the streets in UK and celebrating her death. They are truly revolting and disgusting people.
It is such a tragic image, and one that the Gen Y & X people will have forever in their minds when her name is mentioned, with no hint of respect and admiration for her.
But she would be laughing about the fact that all these dole-bludging so-called Socialist whosi-whats-its holding up commercially printed posters with her image and waving commercially sold balloons with anti-thatcher sayings printed on them are spending their money and thereby supporting Capitalism in their efforts to demonize her.... I think she would enjoy a chuckle about that.
RIP Iron Lady, you earned it.
I'll never forget you, you will always be one of my heroines.
Lady Thatcher will receive a televised ceremonial funeral with military honors at St Paul's Cathedral next week.
