Britain’s first and only woman Prime Minister, died after suffering a stroke at The Ritz

Baroness Thatcher, who was 87, won three general elections for the Conservatives and shaped UK politics for a generation. At home, she implemented sweeping reforms to trade unions, defeated the miners in a bitter strike and forced the Labour Party to modernise itself.  Abroad, she was dubbed “the Iron Lady”,  winning an unlikely war in the Falklands and helping to secure the collapse of the Soviet Union.
