Margaret Thatcher, an icon of our time

Following the sad news of the passing of Baroness Thatcher, Swansea West Conservatives send our deep and sincere condolences to the family and friends of our former Prime Minister.

As a leader that worked tirelessly to make Britain the best it could be, she is fondly remembered by the members of Swansea West Conservatives who were lucky enough to meet her, whether on a single occasion or numerous times.

A strong leader who stood by her principles throughout her time in office, Margaret Thatcher was not only a trail blazer for many women and a strong leader for the country to unite behind; she was an icon of our times.

"Where there is discord, may we bring harmony. Where there is error, may we bring truth. Where there is doubt, may we bring faith. And where there is despair, may we bring hope."

Baroness Thatcher, 1925-2013
