Margaret Thatcher, the former Prime Minister, has died. She was 87. May she rest in peace. Pray for her.
She was one of the pivotal figures of the 20th century. She played a role, along with John Paul II and Pres. Reagan, in bringing down the Soviet bloc.
Damien Thompson posted a video of Thatcher’s last appearance at the Prime Minister’s Question time on 27 November 1990. I’ll include it, below.

I recall that she was also present when Benedict gave his address in Westminster Hall.
