Tuesday, April 9, 2013


Tributes have been pouring out for former UK   Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, who died on April 8 2013 after a stroke. She was aged 87. A divisive figure, Britain's first female prime minister won plaudits for forging a new political consensus. Her wit and sharp lines about socialism have helped cement her reputation as "The Iron Lady."
We at look at ten of the most memorable quotes from Baroness Thatcher.

·         "In politics, if you want anything said, ask a man; if you want anything done, ask a woman".

·         "It will be years – and not in my time – before a woman will lead the party or become prime minister."

·         "I wasn’t lucky. I deserved it."

·         "Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country."

·         "Being in power is like being a lady. If you have to remind people you are, you aren't."

·         "Don't follow the crowd, let the crowd follow you."

·         "No one would have remembered the Good Samaritan if he’d only had good intentions. He had money as well."

·         "Pennies do not come from heaven. They have to be earned here on Earth."

·         "Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people's money. It's quite a characteristic of them."

·         "I came to office with one deliberate intent: to change Britain from a dependent to a self-reliant society — from a give-it-to-me, to a do-it-yourself nation. A get-up-and-go, instead of a sit-back-and-wait-for-it Britain."
