 When did you get to England?

I’ve been here ten days waiting for the funeral

So you came over straight away?


Why’s MT important to you?

My husband and I were in Smith Square when she won the three elections and we were here when her daughter-in-law and son got married the first time at the Savoy, and I’ve always just admired her as a wonderful person.

That’s quite some devotion to keep coming over here

Well she’s the first and the last of the great women prime ministers I think.

Do you think we’ll see anyone like her ever again?

No, never.

How did she effect Canada and the rest of the world?

We saw her as a great mover and a shaker on the international scene, she got friendly with President Gorbachev and President Reagan and the wall came down. She freed hundreds and thousands of Eastern Europeans.

What will you feel tomorrow?

I’ll be sad because I thought the world has lost a great figure, a humanitarian, no matter what some people might say, but they weren’t even born when she was in power.

So you’ve seen her through thick and thin and you’ve come to pay your final respects?

That’s right.
