  1. I remember her important support of Pinochet and Suharto. Her role in fostering the first Gulf War and in cheerleading for the 2003 Gulf War. Her railing against the Commonwealth sanctions directed towards the Apartheid government of South Africa, and her declaration that the ANC is/was/will forever be a terrorist organisation that could never lead a country. I’m sure her family will miss her, and I’m also sure that the media hagiography will continue.

  2. Like The Times of London cover best. New York Times used same great photo on iPad edition.
