Thatcher in 10 Downing Street for meeting with PM

Margaret Thatcher, who had one of longest tenures as Brit PM from 1979-1990, returned to 10 Downing Street for a private meet with premier David Cameron.



London: Margaret Thatcher, who had one of the
longest tenures as Britain`s Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990,
returned to 10 Downing Street for a private meeting with
premier David Cameron.

Known as the `Iron Lady`, Thatcher, 84, and Cameron, 43,
posed in front of the famous prime ministerial door, but did
not respond to questions from the media.

Cameron helped the visibly frail Thatcher from her
limousine. Thatcher waved to waiting photographers but made no
comments.

Wearing a blue dress and coat, Thatcher briefly held on
to the railings outside No 10 as she stepped on to the
doorstep to pose for pictures outside the front door.

Thatcher visited Tony Blair and Gordon Brown at No 10
shortly after the two Labour leaders became Prime Ministers in
1997 and 2007 respectively.

In November 2009, she visited 10 Downing Street to attend
the unveiling of her portrait - the first painting of a living
politician to be hung in the official residence of the Prime
Minister.

Cameron later helped Thatcher back to her car after a
visit of around 45 minutes.
