She was an excellent Prime Minister. Thatcher became PM when Britain was dubbed the sick man of Europe. In 1979, The UK was a country in complete decline. Thatcher changed this. Her policies lead to a change from a low skill manufacturing economy to a high skill knowledge based economy. The City of London became the financial capital of the world. Her policies lead to inflation dropping from 27% in 1979 to just under 4% in 1983. She maintained a strong pound and fought tooth and nail for us in Brussels. Due to her negotiations, The UK became the country with the best deal inside the EU and she won us a rebate in the EU. Living standards also consistently rose under her and outpaced living standards in France, Germany and the US by 1988. Investment accelerated under her government and soon the UK became the gateway to Europe. Many people argue that her privatisations lead to decline. That is simply untrue. She made sure that only the industries that needed privatisation were privatised to generate profits. What many people don't consider is that Thatcher cared for the people of the country and never thought of privatising the NHS because she thought that the NHS should always remain nationalised and under government hands. She made sure the NHS would never become part of her privatisation policy because she cared and loved the NHS. I strongly believe the NHS should remain 100% nationalised because healthcare should always be free at the point of delivery. She introduced her tough nationality act in 1981. She tightened immigration. Moreover, She respected and loved traditional institutions such as the Monarchy and the Church of England and made sure they remained untouched. She was a strong supporter of the Monarchy and the Royal Family and also the Church of England. By the time she left 10 downing street after 11 years, The country was in an improved and stronger position. Her legacy remains. She considered Tony Blair and Gordon Brown's New Labour as her greatest achievement. Without her as PM, There would have been no New Labour. New Labour was an achievement and legacy of Thatcher. She would never have supported holding a referendum and she would never have supported Brexit because she was not a quitter and would have instead decided to renegotiate a better and a more suitable deal for the UK inside the EU. She will be considered one of the greatest Prime Ministers this country has had and may her great soul rest in peace. She will always be remembered and loved. Margaret Thatcher was one of the greatest prime ministers the UK has had. Margaret Thatcher was indeed a great woman and above all a great PM. I will always have respect for her.

Lady Thatcher brought our country back from a state of economic crisis in 1979; she was a great, formidable figure who stuck by her beliefs and her morals and this country is indebted to her for what she did. It is a great shame that her last year in office was marred by the struggle she had with members of her own party.
Margaret Thatcher was a great prime minister. It is a shame she had to spend the latter part of her rule fending off wannabees in the party. She had a huge raft of social ills to deal with, and she had the strength of character to make the hard decisions that everyone else danced around. Unlike the rest of the venial characters in politics, she was not susceptible to corruption.
Yes, I believe that Margaret Thatcher was a good Prime Minister for Great Britain. She was a super tough lady who didn't let anyone tell her what to do. She did things her way and definitely lived up to her nickname as the "Iron Lady." She paved a great path for future British Prime Ministers.
Margaret Thatcher lived by the rules she set forth for the people. She didnt spend great amounts and she paid her own bills and bought her own things. She was fair and honest, and reported daily to the Queen, letting her know what was going on. She lowered direct taxes on income and increased indirect taxes. She lead with an iron fist, but a soft heart.
Margaret Thatcher entered office amid lots of social and economic injustices, and with her conservative nature, she helped not only her own party, but the liberal (Tory) party as well. In wake of her death, there have been many people on both sides, and John Major himself, who have come to support this great world leader; may she rest in peace.
Firstly, she was sexist to men: she said 'If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman' which shows that she believes that women are better leaders than men. I think gender has nothing to do with it. Also, she put too many people out of a job, leading to the poor getting poorer and the rich getting richer. I don't think she is evil and should rot in hell, but I don't believe that her positive effects weigh out the negatives.
She was a brutal draconian conservative in every sense of the word, really. She didn't care for the poor. In fact, she treated the poor as if they were second-class citizens and her enemy. And, during a time when women were fighting for equal pay and equal rights to men, she hated feminism.
