A poll commissioned by the Sun newspaper showed that Mrs Thatcher is the most popular Prime Minister since 1945. Incidentally the current incumbent of Downing Street scored under 1%. He is nominally a conservative but in reality not worthy of the name.

In Britain, the Conservatives are not conserving anything, Labor is trying to avoid working, and the Socialists have just about run out of Other People"s Money.

How's the UKIP looking now?

I have voted Conservative all my life, but for the first time, I am seriously considering voting UKIP next time. They won't get in, of course, but it might just give the Conservatives a shock. At the moment they are not a conservative party. They are a liberal party.

When Margaret Thatcher was elected England's first female prime minister of England in the spring of 1979, I was 12 years old and my father had been a congressman for less than four months. To me, it seemed as if it would be only a short while until my own country followed suit and elected a woman to serve as president.

Of course, in my mind, it would be a conservative woman, strong willed, committed, determined and articulate. Like Thatcher.

Thatcher served as prime minster for more than 11 years, stepping down only after a power struggle within her own Conservative...
