‘Our Maggie,’ tribute to Margaret Thatcher trending on Twitter



The center-right Conservative Party in the United Kingdom will open its annual conference this weekend with a film tribute to Margaret Thatcher titled, “Our Maggie.”

Thatcher, who died on April 8, 2013, at age 87, was the British Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990 — she was the United Kingdom’s first female prime minister — and leader of the Conservative Party from 1975 to 1990. 

Given the nickname “Iron Lady” by a Soviet journalist because of her staunch opposition to the Soviet Union and socialism, Thatcher was a friend and ally of President Ronald Reagan.

Those interviewed in the film include Prime Minister David Cameron who talks about her “lion-hearted love for her country,” and several others who served in her governments.

The Conservative Party announced their annual conference on Twitter, which prompted plenty of feedback, both positive and negative, on their decision to honor Margaret Thatcher. A few samples:
