Margaret Thatcher, the former UK Prime Minister, has died at the age of 87. I remember her very well, having lived in London during her eleven year tenure as Prime Minister. At the time, she was a polarizing figure because of her privatization of industries. I think this excerpt by Richard Carr in the New York Times best describes her rein as Prime Minster:
"In assessing her impact, Richard Carr, a political scientist at Anglia Ruskin University, said: “To supporters, she changed Britain from a nation in long-term industrial decline to an energetic, dynamic economy. To opponents, she entrenched inequalities between the regions and classes, and placed the free market above all other concerns. Our politics, and many of our politicians, have been forged in her legacy.”"
