As Parliament is recalled for a special session for tributes from MPs to the Rt Hon Baroness Thatcher of Kesteven LG OM, Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has praised the life and achievements of the former British Prime Minister.
Commenting, Mike said: “Margaret Thatcher will rightly be remembered as a formidable politician who transformed not only the political landscape but the fortunes of our country. Britain is the hugely successful country that it is today as a direct result of the polices that the Thatcher Government implemented. Indeed, London remains a financial powerhouse that is integral to our economy.”
Mike added, “News of Thatcher’s death came as a shock, but it has been heartening to read and hear stories of Thatcher’s incredible legacy being discussed around the world. The global coverage is completely understandable given the impact that Thatcher had on international relations. I have looked up to Thatcher since I was a student and will never forget meeting her. As long as I remain a Member of Parliament I will continue to stand up for the principles that Thatcher embodied.”
