Britain’s first female Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died this morning following a stroke.

Baroness Thatcher, who twice stood as a Conservative candidate in the Dartford seat in the early 1950s and lost, was 87.

She met her husband Denis in a dance hall in Dartford shortly after being formally confirmed as Conservative candidate for Dartford in 1951.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
