Some faculty members at the University of Oxford are objecting to a plan to name a new business school building for Margaret Thatcher, the former British prime minister, The Telegraph reported. The donor for the building has indicated that he wants the facility to honor Thatcher, but some professors are threatening to force a full faculty vote to block the name. Thatcher did not fare well in a previous vote by the full faculty -- in 1985 -- to reject a proposal to give her an honorary degree.
