Baroness Thatcher’s Funeral

Baroness Thatcher

Today sees the funeral of Baroness Thatcher. On Monday I signed the book of condolence in the House of Commons library and on Tuesday evening I paid my respects to Baroness Thatcher in the Chapel of St Mary Undercroft in the Palace of Westminster.

Margaret Thatcher was a great leader, a great Prime Minister and a great Briton. She was the first woman Prime Minister in our history. She served three terms in a row, and was Prime Minister for longer than anyone for 150 years. She helped to end the Cold War and she liberated the Falklands.

I am very glad that I had the opportunity to meet her.

Whatever people’s views of her politics and believes, I hope they show respect today. The World will be watching our Nation today.
