The British's opinion on Thatcher is very divided and split into two camps; those who hate her and those who admire her. The deep divisions continues to this very day, the view of Thatcher from one side is that she was responsible for the fall of the Trade Unions in the UK, and exhibited ruthless behaviour towards the miners and other blue-collar
workers. However, those on the opposing side of the debate believe that Thatcher brought Britain back up from it's knees when it was facing a major financial crisis pre-1979 due to the aftermath of WW2 and the creation of the Welfare State in 1948.
Eventually after a decade in power, in 1990, mainly due to the public backlash of the Poll Tax, Thatcher was forced out of government by her own cabinet members and was succeeded by John Major
It is likely that the British will a strong opinion on Thatcher for a long time yet, as demonstrated in some of defintions left by other users.
Margaret Thatcher is like marmite - you either love her or hate her.
Evil Emperess of Britain between 1979 - 1990. Eventually thrown down a mine shaft by Darth Heseltine in a leadership contest.

'A little local difficulty' the title of the chapter in her autobiography concerning the poll tax.
Worst thing ever to happen to the country. Drove the economy, job market and country into the ground, repeatedly, at speed.
Living (well, sort of) proof that the Torys are evil beyond belief.
Margret Thatcher and Nigel Lawson clusterfucked England until it bled.
Although not a direct insult, Margaret Thatcher is used as a yardstick to test public hatred for politicians. Although Tony Blair has tried hard in his ten years as Prime Minister he will be devastated to leave office without even 50% of the villification Maggie achieved.
'Mrs Thatcher the milk snatcher', 'maggie' or 'crazy old bitch' as she was affectionately known steered the UK through important and necessary structural economic changes to ensure the competitiveness of Britain's economy.
She did this in the most dispicably mean spirited and evil manner, by forcing hardship and unemployment upon millions of people, removing role models and providing a whole generation with a sub standard education. This is conclusive evidence of sexual equlity as she proved a feminine ability to be more ruthless than the most evil men.
She was instrumental with ronald reagan in defeating the Soviets during the cold war. Maggie was also called the 'Iron Lady', reputably coined by the Russians pissed at her tough negotiating stance but more likely due to the KGB discovering she is actually a Borg (cyborg).
Some disputed facts:
This evil wizened old hag has been medically certified as having the largest testicles in Britain.
Some claim that contrary to being a cyborg her heartlessness stems from from an infection that developed in cobwebs that built up in her pussy over many years that then went on to putrify her internal organs.

Someone whose grave i cannot wait to piss on. Is George Bush as a woman. They both have that same "nobel Brow".
I cannot wait to piss on Margaret Thatcher's grave.
prime minister of UK between 1979 and 1990. First female, and given what she did to the country, probably the last female. Granted the powers to the EU that the conservative
party now complained about. Had an unjustified war with argentina and killed tens of thousands of people overa bunch of frozen rocks when diplomacy would have got us back the islands that meant nothing to everyone in mainland UK
and lots to the little racist people on them. trebled unemployment, shut down the mines (it is now worked out that if she left them alone, then it would have made the country a profit, rather than costing millions and putting thousands on the dole). oh, and a little thing called the poll tax
In other words, the most overrated leader of the UK since the monarchy was in charge.
tory: margaret thatcher was the best thing that ever happened to this country. She put all those poor people in their place.
