Margaret Thatcher passes away at 87

One of the best-known politicians on the planet, former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died, aged 87. The AP reports that she suffered a stroke.

Baroness Thatcher has been the only female ever elected to Prime Minister. She is a political legend known for her strong will and Conservative values.

Interesting fact… Thatcher never lost a general election. She was forced out of power by her fellow Tories and didn’t run for re-election.
