GUEST,Georgina Boyes Songs About Thatcher (81* d) RE: Songs About Thatcher 11 Apr 13

Mark didn't do anything to merit his title, he didn't even have to trouble himself to do anything apart from survive his father. Margaret Thatcher's husband, Denis was given a peerage in 199- and became Baron Thatcher of Scotney. Unlike almost all created peers these days, he was given a life peerage but a hereditary one (the only non-member of the royal family to get one in ages). Mark simply inherited the peerage when his father died - hence 'Sir' Mark Thatcher.

Mrs Thatcher was also given a life peerage in her own right in 1992.

I leave you to guess the kind of titles attached to members of the Thatcher family in South Yorkshire, but it's not 'sir' or 'lady'.
