US Congress Honours Margaret Thatcher


The US Congress has in the last few minutes passed a motion honouring Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The resolution was passed by Republicans and Democrats alike with only 64 voting against. The resolution stated that the House of Representatives:

(1) acknowledges the 30th anniversary of the election of Margaret Thatcher as the first female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom;

(2) pays tribute to the remarkable professional achievements of Margaret Thatcher;

(3) recognizes Prime Minister Thatcher’s dedicated work in promoting individual rights and free markets around the world; and

(4) appreciates the strong diplomatic relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom fostered by Prime Minister Thatcher.

Im delighted that even a Democratic dominated Congress marked the special anniversary of this special lady.
