– Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg
Margaret Thatcher was one of the defining figures in modern British politics.
Whatever side of the political debate you stand on, no-one can deny that as prime minister she left a unique and lasting imprint on the country she served.
She may have divided opinion during her time in politics but everyone will be united today in acknowledging the strength of her personality and the radicalism of her politics.
My thoughts are with her family and friends.
Lady Thatcher's funeral will take place next Wednesday, David Cameron has announced. It will be a ceremonial funeral with full military honours. Her body was removed from The Ritz hotel overnight.
