London Mayor Boris Johnson has supported calls for a Margaret Thatcher statue to be erected in central London, according to The Telegraph.
A spokesman for the GLA said: “The Mayor believes Baroness Thatcher deserves a prominent statue in a central London location and his team will assist with exploring suitable options.”
The idea has been put forward by former servicemen and has been echoed by Lord Tebbit and UKIP leader Nigel Farage.
Historians Dr Roland Quinalt and Dr Eliza Filby give their views on how history will remember Thatcher less emotively than we do today.
For better or worse Margaret Thatcher gave Alastair Stewart the most electric, stimulating and intellectually satisfying decade of his life.
When she was alive Baroness Thatcher was both loved and loathed - and in death, it seems, both the debate and the divide will endure.
