Personal Quote:

[on Margaret Thatcher] She walked alone and friendless to school and back. She did not play with other girls in the playground at break. Instead she volunteered to clean the school lavatories. She took these early experiences with her to Downing Street and had her revenge. She made greed respectable. See more »


She left school when she was 15. She worked as a gas station attendant, shop assistant, and factory worker. See more »
