Conservative MP John Redwood described Baroness Thatcher as "the best boss I ever worked for," and praised her conviction, as well as "energy and diligence". Speaking in the House of Commons he said:

"She was the best boss I ever worked for, [...] She was that great figure because the private side of Margaret Thatcher was very different from the public side.

"Yes, many people beyond this house remember the woman who was so powerful in arguments and clear in conviction, but what we saw was a woman who worked incredibly long hours with such energy and diligence."
