MARGARET THATCHER 1925 - 2013

By Colin Bloom


Passing of Baroness Thatcher

Statement from Colin Bloom, Executive Director, Conservative Christian Fellowship 8th April 2013

“The Conservative Christian Fellowship started whilst Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister and she will forever have a special place in our hearts.

It has been said of her that whilst many Prime Ministers were weathervanes, she was a signpost. Her legacy for both the United kingdom and the world is incalculable; history will show that she, more than any other British Prime Minister of the past sixty years, changed our Nation for the better.

Her Methodist upbringing shone through her; she was particularly fond of a quotation from John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, "Earn all you can; save all you can; give all you can.” Something which we think might be a fitting epitaph for her. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.”
