I learn about big news when I get notifications on my iPhone. That’s how I found out that Margaret Thatcher had died. This Iron Lady whose legacy was taken to the big screen by Meryl Streep in Iron Lady in 2011. She was a powerful political figure and served as British Prime Minister for eleven years. She transformed Britain, by breaking the unions, selling off state industries, and basically thinning out the government, honoring the ideals of her British Conservative Party.
