RIP Baroness Thatcher

Baroness Margaret Thatcher, RIP.

Today marks a sad day.  An incredible lady has passed away.  A lady who rescued the UK from the brink of social meltdown, who saved the economy, stood up to Europe, rescued the ideals of capitalism, and drew millions back from poverty.

Who will pick up the mantle now? George Osborne and David Cameron have more in common with Brown and Callaghan than they do with the free market economics of Baroness Thatcher quotes.

Here are a few of our favourite Margaret Thatcher quotes.  Do you have any more?

  • “What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose.”
  • “You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.”
  • “To those waiting with bated breath for that favourite media catchphrase, the U-turn, I have only one thing to say: You turn if you want to. The lady’s not for turning.”

and perhaps the most relevant of all:

  • “Pennies don’t fall from heaven — they have to be earned here on Earth.”
