    I never did hear an explanation as to exactly what was wrong with her voice that kept her out of the limelight in recent years/decade.

    She lived a good life. People shouldn't judge her too harshly. She was a transitional leader from the upper class domination of the Prime Ministers slot to a more populist model.

    What about the parts that WANT to belong to the UK? Falklands didnt rebel, they were invaded.
