Margaret Thatcher

Thatcher was an extremely polarizing leader in the UK, who stringently followed an economic policy of reducing government controls, ending the welfare-state, and increasing home-ownership. She reigned for 3 terms, up until 1980. Her and Ronald Reagan were similarly minded and supposedly friends. During her reign the economy did eventually improve, but it is unknown how much of that was due to her policies.
