英国“铁娘子”、前首相撒切尔夫人8日去世,享年87岁。撒切尔夫人1979年至1990年任首相,是英国唯一一位女首相,也是英国20世纪连续执政时间最长的首相。本段演讲是她在卸任首相,离开唐宁街时的简短讲话。

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We're leaving Downing Street for the last time after eleven-and-a-half wonderful years, and we're very happy that we leave the United Kingdom in a very, very much better state than when we came here eleven and a half years ago.

It's been a tremendous privilege to serve this country as Prime Minister — wonderfully happy years —and I'm immensely grateful to the staff who supported me so well, and may I also say a word of thanks to all the people who sent so many letters, still arriving, and for all the flowers.

Now it's time for a new chapter to open and I wish John Major all the luck in the world. He'll be splendidly served and he has the makings of a great Prime Minister, which I'm sure he'll be in very short time.

Thank you very much. Goodbye.
