Did they fly flags at half mast for Margaret Thatcher who won three elections as Prime Minister?

Obviously as an old age pensioner with a kindly face Mandela was adored as a 'Robin Hood' saviour but the white minority there became the victims of circumstance after his release and is South Africa a better place now after abolition of white rule? I personally do not think it is.

Lawless.
