Ex-Prime Minister Baroness Margaret Thatcher dies

Former Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher has died "peacefully" at the age of 87 after suffering a stroke, her family has announced.

Successor David Cameron called her a "great Briton" and the Queen spoke of her sadness at the death.

Lady Thatcher was Conservative prime minister from 1979 to 1990. She was the first woman to hold the role.

She will not be accorded a state funeral, in accordance with her own wishes, Downing Street said.

Margaret Thatcher.

"Thatcherism always owed more to Methodism than it ever did to monetarism. This was the real source of Mrs Thatcher’s “conviction politics”. Thatcherism centred on a charismatic leader who cultivated a religious aura, was promoted like a religion, had notable converts like a religion, was rejected like a religion, and would cause a sharp divide within the nation like that of a religious war from centuries past.
Christianity was not only fundamental to the political leader, but also the person."

"No British prime minister since William Gladstone was more deeply marked, nor their personality so defined, by their religious heritage and faith.
Lady Thatcher’s religious doctrine was not confined to the heart nor to the head, nor was it mere political spin.
It is only by understanding Lady Thatcher’s faith that we can understand the philosophy that bore her name, her leadership style and that steely resolve that enabled her to sustain power for 11 years." (Dr. Eliza Filby)

Poor David Cameron, he had to read out John 14:1-6 at the service today. He did read very nicely from the King James Bible, but hadn't got a clue what it was he was reading. Which is why "he must be born again".

Interesting that one of the hymns Mrs Thatcher fore-chose was Bunyan's "He who would valiant be", the pilgrim's battle song. I wonder if she knew what it was all about.

From one extreme to the other.

"historic requisite" would have us believe Thatcher "back then" found it necessary to have unemployment to get rid of the evil ecology polluting coal industry.

When called out on the stupidity of this statement "hr" posts ...

Nobody was an environmentalist back then.
Which is also a bit odd, considering the Ecology Party was functioning long before Margaret Thatcher took power and contested 53 seats in the parliamentary elections in 1979.

Unemployment wasn't the fault of any one person whether politician or peasant.
Tell that to "historic requisite" who said it was "necessary" in order to meet a stated political objective. Only a fool would think all unemployment was the result of one person. You are arguing with "historic requisite's" strawman. Are you in league together?

Nobody was an environmentalist back then. The daft ideas of global warming was still in the land of the ludicrous.

Unemployment wasn't the fault of any one person whether politician or peasant. Unions and their greed and mad cap strikes did more to increase unemployment than any single person.

Unions were worn out decades ago they are no use today and have been getting in the way of industry and production for decades. Their biggest contribution in recent times has been to destroy firms and industries.

Socialism is a disease which has helped destroy many western countries including the UK. The true effects of socialism can be observed in Russia, China and North Korea et al. And that is precisely where Stalin Milliband would take us today. Big Brother government for gullible people who want the bureaucrats to tell the people what to say think and do.

Less government is whats necessary in UK and zero unions.

Odd. She switched to imported open-cast coal which was a far bigger environmental blot on the landscape...

Also, anachronistic reasoning on 2 grounds.
First, Thatcher was not an environmentalist.
Second, even if she had been motivated by environmental concerns, Low NOx coal burners have now been used in power generation for 20 years now.

If there was any sense in your comment you would have thought that switching to supposedly cheaper fuels would have been a boon to employment in all other industries. Yet, the vast majority of Maggie's extra 2 million unemployed were not coal miners...

But please don't let the plain facts get in the way of your idolisation. Fortunately Trade Unions are still with us, so you can keep blaming them for the next 30 years for all the failures of the Tories today.

Unemployment was necessary back then to get rid of the evil ecology polluting coal industry.

Maggie also got rid of the other evil back then that of the communist belligerent and anti-social unions.

She was just about the only man with a job back then!
Many others felt the need to go and serve evil foreign despots to earn a crust.

Which demonstrates what the male politicians have become. Weak whimps and morally Liberal.
You're right, but my own life experience has shown that it's VERY hard to become a real man when the tide of the culture is so strongly against you.

Even as a kid growing up in the early 1970s I couldn't help but wonder who was going to "raise the kids" and "keep the home" with most if not all of my female classmates talking about pursuing a full-time career.

Knowing that any sign of disagreement with or disparagement of these new feminist aspirations would bring wrath down on me and my fellow male students, we kept quiet, even trying to approve. Sadly, the girls' eyes were so full of stars at the prospect of being more like men that they ended up being sucked into this new mindset with no restraint either. Parents at the time were complicit, believing that "newer is always better".

Looking back it did have an adverse effect on my overall morale and significantly blunted my own energy and desire to mature as a man and "invest" in my culture, which was rapidly becoming less desirable and recognizable from what I was taught, before all this feminist stuff became popular.

Agree Cliff.

I thought she and Reagan served our two nations, and the world, very well. Times were good then. She wasn't know as "Iron Lady" without cause. A great loss.

Just heard on the news that her father,who she thought the world of, was a lay preacher so we can only hope that she heard The Gospel of Salvation from his lips & acted upon that knowledge.
