Hot on the heels of Jeb Bush’s call for Margaret Thatcher to be put on the $10 bill, a UK-based charity that has been set up to teach future generations about the Iron Lady’s life, values and achievements is now marketing replica $10 bills with a portrait of Lady Thatcher on them.
The Margaret Thatcher Centre, which is modelled on the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley & Museum and Young America’s Foundation’s Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, is the first of its kind in Britain.
Margaret Thatcher rose from humble beginnings to become the first female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990. She worked closely with Ronald Reagan and Jeb Bush’s father, George H W Bush, to end the Cold War and to defeat Soviet Communism. Like Reagan, Thatcher was a low tax, small government patriot who campaigned fearlessly for democracy, freedom and the rule of law. The Margaret Thatcher Centre works to protect and advance her legacy in Britain and worldwide.
Whereas Sir Winston Churchill was honoured by the British establishment with the creation of a college in his name at Cambridge University, no such honour was conferred on Baroness Thatcher during her lifetime. Indeed her alma mater, Oxford University, refused to confer an honorary degree on her while she was Prime Minister in protest at her fiscally conservative policies.
The Margaret Thatcher Centre runs a number of Trans-Atlantic programs aimed not only at spreading conservatism in Britain and Europe but also in taking Lady Thatcher’s legacy across the United States, inspiring the next generation to dare mighty deeds and stand up for freedom.
American supporters of the Margaret Thatcher Centre are able to support the Margaret Thatcher Centre through a US-based tax-deductible 501(c)(3) at www.cherishfreedomfoundation.org.
