Terribly sad news this morning: Former U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died following a stroke. She was 87 years old.
🙁 RT @ethanklapper: Wish this was one of those times that Thatcher was just a rumor. But with ITV, Sky, BBC all reporting, it's real 🙁

Lady Thatcher was iconic which ever side of the fence you sat. Powerful, decisive & no bull. Unlike our government at present. #respect
