Thatcher's Death Marks the End of an Era

Magst is referring to Liverpool a totally socialist City which comitted industrial suicide in the 1970s and 80s by strikes and left wing dogma which paralysed it. The thatcher government, using Michael Heseltine MP pumped taxpayer money into it to try and help, but its lunatic left wing council soon put paid to that.

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...
