London: "We`ll never see the like of her again," said a friend of Britain`s former prime minister Margaret Thatcher who died Monday.
Thatcher`s spokesman and friend Lord Bell told Sky News: "We`ll never see the like of her again. She was one of the great prime ministers of all time and transformed people`s lives."
He called Thatcher, a grocer`s daughter from Grantham, as the greatest leader of the Conservative Party with the exception of Winston Churchill.
"She was just a fantastic person - extraordinary charisma, very focused, loved her country, loved being in government and dedicated her life to making people`s lives better...I think history will remember her very kindly," he was quoted as saying.
Thatcher died Monday after suffering a stroke. She was 87.
