Margaret Thatcher

Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher, was born on October 13, 1925, in Grantham, England. She became Britain's Conservative Party leader and in 1979 was elected prime minister, the first woman to hold the position. During her three terms, she battled the country's recession by initially raising interest rates to control inflation. She was best known for her destruction of Britain's traditional industries through her attacks on labor organizations such as the miner's union, and for the massive privatization of social housing and public transport. Her most important publications are: The Downing Street Years (London, HarperCollins, 1993); The Path to Power (London, HarperCollins 1995) and Statecraft (London, HarperCollins, 2002). Thatcher resigned in 1991. She died on April 8, 2013, at age 87.

I am the first to say that on many great issues the countries of Europe should try to speak with a single voice. I want to see us work more closely on the things we can do better together than alone. Europe is stronger when we do so, whether it be in trade, in defence or in our relations with the rest of the world.
