My view for what it's worth.

It would be false of me to suggest I agreed with half the things she believed in, but she should be respected if nothing else, a politician of genuine conviction who changed the way Britain saw itself, and the way the rest of the world saw Britain. A Prime Minister not afraid to be America’s ally but who never expected us to be America’s lapdog, who stood up to the unions when they needed standing up to, a Prime Minister who laid much of the ground work for why Britain is still a great place to live today, and yes some of the groundwork for why it isn’t too.

The right Prime Minister at the right time. And let’s not forget, a woman who made it to the top of her profession without the need for positive discrimination, a wealthy background or the need to be a Westminster insider, a politician from another era who herself said;

“It used to be about trying to do something. Now it's about trying to be someone.”

For better or worse not a Prime Minister history will forget in a hurry.
