'broke the mould of British politics', says Tessa Munt
MP has paid tribute to former Prime Minster Margaret Thatcher,
who has died this week.
Tessa Munt told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Margaret Thatcher broke
the mould of this male dominated profession and to stay in power
so dominantly as a woman for eleven years was hugely impressive
cannot say that I agreed with most of her policies - the poll
tax was hugely un-popular and a clear error, she made savage cuts
to industry with no real plan for regeneration and her drastic
cuts to the military meant we only just had the capacity to go
into the Falklands."
is hard to imagine what Britain would have been like if she hadnt
been Prime Minister; she was a determined, straight-talking leader
who certainly made an impression."
Margaret Thatcher, 87, died earlier this week after suffering
a stroke. Her funeral will be held next Wednesday.
