Black Britons Weigh In On Margaret Thatcher Legacy

From The Grio

The former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher has died at the age of 87. After battling more than decade of poor health, the ex-Conservative leader passed away on Monday from a stroke.

Baroness Thatcher had been staying at the five-star Ritz Hotel in Central London for several months. It is understood she died in one of the hotel’s suites in the morning.

The grocer’s daughter, who became the longest serving British prime minister of the 20th century, is the U.K.’s first, and so far only, female prime minister.

Known as the “Iron Lady” for her unshakable political and personal strength, “Maggie” was a formidable figure.
