Infographic: Thatcher’s Falklands legacy

On Saturday Sir Mark Thatcher, son of former prime minister Margaret Thatcher, unveiled a bust of the Iron Lady on the Falkland Islands. The statue will be an irritant for the Argentinian government, which still claims sovereignty over the islands it calls Las Malvinas.

When Thatcher died in April 2013, we analysed 13 lead editorials published on the day after her death. As it turns out, the 1982 Falklands War is what she was most remembered for. Here are the other themes that make up the Iron Lady’s legacy.
