She was a divisive character in her political life. When difficult decisions need to be made you can’t please all of the people all of the time. Baroness Thatcher wasn’t concerned with the popular decision, just the right one. One commentator said ‘she was a signpost, not a weather vane’ and her legacy is that she is remembered for who much she achieved and her strength in carrying it off, even by those who may not have agreed with her decision or policy at the time.
She was the last of the statesmen in Britain. No one since, nor even Blair, could hold a candle to her.
