Given the declining health of Margaret Thatcher, it is time to admire the fruits of the labor of the greatest woman born since the Virgin Mary who saved England and its territories of Scotland, Wales, and Ireland from the specter of socialism and transformed England into the world's most advanced economy, free of unionized tyranny of manufacturing and fully immersed the 21st century service economy.

England, once derisively referred to as the 51st state, the sick man of Europe, or America's unsinkable aircraft carrier, has risen to the proud status of becoming Europe's Manhattan - the unquestioned cultural and financial center of the EU and possibly the planet.
