19. World From Berlin: 'Thatcher's Dogma Paved Way for Financial Crisis'

http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/german-press-commentary-on-the-legacy-of-margaret-thatcher-a-893350.html

Popping champagne bottles and chanting, "Maggie, Maggie, Maggie, dead, dead, dead," hundreds of people gathered in cities around Britain on Monday night to celebrate the passing of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, a woman who had a deep, divisive and lasting impact on Britain.

But their cheers have been drowned out by tributes to the "Iron Lady" from political allies and adversaries alike, in Britain and around the world.
In Germany, former Chancellor Helmut Kohl, frail, wheelchair-bound and suffering from slurred speech, made a rare appearance to praise her, even though their relationship had been an uneasy one and she did not support German unification after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

"She was a great woman," said Kohl. "I am full of respect and awe." He described her as one of the most "consummate British prime ministers that ever lived. In many situations and disputes over the economy, she stood her ground."
