Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has said that he is honoured to have received an invitation to the funeral of Lady Thatcher and that he will represent his constituents at the national occasion.
Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral will take place at 11am on Wednesday 17th April at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. Before the funeral, Lady Thatcher’s body will lay overnight in the Chapel of St Mary Undercroft in the Palace of Westminster.
Commenting, Mike said, “It is an honour to be able to represent the residents of Hove and Portslade at this important occasion. Margaret Thatcher will rightly be remembered as a formidable politician and the plans for her funeral look set to give her the send-off that she deserves.”
Mike added, “However, I have been absolutely disgusted by the behaviour of some left-wing zealots who have been attempting to detract from what is a sombre event, especially for the family of Lady Thatcher, and indeed for the country.”
