Margaret Thatcher

 The Iron Lady

Margaret Thatcher, former prime minister of Britain, passed away recently.
 
She was dubbed "the Iron Lady" by a Soviet newspaper and the name stuck – well-suited as it was to the tough line she took on economic and social policy, as well as defense and international relations.
 
The song "March Hahayalot" (music: Moshe Wilensky, lyrics: Leah Goldberg), which opens with the words" "My will is iron", is presented here in Thatcher's memory.
