Labour pays respect to Margaret Thatcher
Labour is today paying its respects to the family, friends and colleagues of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher who passed away overnight.
“Baroness Thatcher was a passionate and formidable politician who loved her country. While I didn’t agree with many of her policies, she was a strong and decisive leader with unwavering principles. She was Britain’s first and only female Prime Minister.
“We join with political leaders around the world in remembering Margaret Thatcher’s service to the people of Britain and her significant impact on the global political environment,” said David Shearer.
