Leader of Bath and North East Somerset Conservative Group, Cllr Francine Haeberling (Cons, Saltford), has paid tribute to Baroness Thatcher.
Cllr Haeberling said:
“Margaret Thatcher was an iconic politician and true leader who will be remembered as one of our greatest Prime Ministers. As Britain’s first female Prime Minister she was also an inspiration to many women, demonstrating that female leaders could be just as able, articulate and ferociously intelligent as their male counterparts, if not more so.
“I hope that, even though we have lost Baroness Thatcher, her ideals will live on: those of aspiration, responsibility and enterprise. What Margaret Thatcher stood for remains just as relevant today as ever. She will be greatly missed.”
