Julian Reacts to Sad Death of Baroness Thatcher

April 8, 2013

Julian has today expressed his sadness and deep regret upon hearing the news of Baroness Thatcher’s death this morning.

In a statement, Julian said:

“I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Baroness Thatcher. While I understand she polarised opinion, for me, and I expect for many others, she was one of the greatest Prime Ministers this Country has ever had. She came to power in 1979, at a time when the Country was being crippled by trade unionism and a Keynesian economic consensus that simply wasn’t working. She was steadfast in her principles throughout her 11-year-premiership, barely shifting an inch, and the Country was in far greater shape in 1990 as a result.

“Baroness Thatcher was one of my leading influences and she’s a huge part of the reason I’m in Politics today. I expect many of my Conservative Colleagues in Westminster and indeed across the Country would say much the same. She will be sorely missed, but her legacy will never be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this difficult time.”
