A leader who never wavered

The death of the longest-serving prime minister (1979-1990) marks the passing of one of the towering leaders of Britain and the world.

Margaret Thatcher was a strong leader with the courage of her convictions. She translated her beliefs into action.

She was a brave lady and, in spite of attacks on her life, she did not waver. She narrowly escaped injury in an IRA assassination attempt in October 1984. The next day, she adhered to her itinerary.

Her leadership was always characterised by a strong vision and an endeavour to transform society.
