Requiescat in pace

"Many of our troubles are due to the fact that our people turn to politicians for everything."
"Good Conservatives always pay their bills. And on time. Not like the Socialists who run up other people's bills."

Mrs. Thatcher combating both social engineering and credit expansion, not because it made her popular but because it is right. The sad fact that the Iron Lady was part of a rare breed of politicians is the main reason for why the West risks going from dissatisfaction to disdain. One does not have to have agreed with her entirely in order to realise that.
