Margaret Thatcher didn't just hang out with Michael Winner and Kenny Everett, you know. Oh no.
She was also a firm friend to many strong leaders - more commonly known as 'dictators' - but sadly, none of them will be able to attend her funeral on Wednesday. Mainly because they've passed away - occasionally at the hands of their own people - or in the case of one, they're in prison.
