STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER ROBERT M. McDOWELL ON THE PASSING OF

FORMER BRITISH PRIME MINISTER MARGARET THATCHER

The following statement can be attributed to Commissioner Robert M. McDowell:
“The passing of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher marks a sad loss not only for
the United Kingdom, but for the United States and everyone who cherishes freedom across the
globe. She rose from humble but proud roots to become not only one of the most influential
women in world history, but one of the greatest global leaders of all time. Through her steely
resolve, unparalleled intellect and inexhaustible energy, she stared down sexism, skepticism,
statism and Communism. At the same time, she promoted freedom and prosperity while
strengthening the sovereignty of the individual. It was a profound honor to have met her. She
set a standard of statesmanship I hope is emulated for centuries to come.”
