She destroyed "community" as a concept. She encouraged selfishness and greed. She relegated generations to poverty and despair

Margaret Thatcher was the Prime Minister who put the final nail in the coffin of British industry. Engineering was in trouble before she took charge, but she decided we were going to build our economy on service industries. We have and the consequences are the lack of jobs for working people and the disappearance of skills with which we built this great nation.
– Gary Rowlands
Margaret Thatcher put the Great back into Britain and freed us from the stranglehold of militant unions, deepest sympathies to her family.
Today is a truly sad day for our country. We've lost a great prime minister, a great leader, a great Briton.
As our first woman prime minister, Margaret Thatcher succeeded against all the odds, and the real thing about Margaret Thatcher is that she didn't just lead our country, she saved our country, and I believe she'll go down as the greatest British peacetime prime minister.
