Grantham Journal letter: Saddened by Margaret Thatcher’s death

Have your say

It was with great sadness that I heard of the death of Margaret Thatcher, a great lady from our town who changed our country and made it a better place for so many.

She proved herself in so many ways and whatever your political beliefs, I think everyone has to agree that she achieved a great deal throughout her life, if nothing more than being the first lady Prime Minister to win three general elections.

Love her or loathe her, you have to admit that she was one ballsy lady and stood up for what she thought was just and good, from the Argentinian Junta to Arthur Scargill, she took them on and won.

I hope that the good people of Grantham rally round and fight for a statue of our Iron Lady, they should be proud to come from the same town as such an inspirational figure.
