David Cameron has praised Margaret Thatcher’s opponents for attending a special session in the House of Commons.
“Your generosity of spirit does you great credit and it speaks more eloquently than any one person can of the strength and the spirit of British statesmanship and British democracy.”
He said Baroness Thatcher was “utterly devoted to her family” and “was always incredibly kind to me.”
He added: “I know that today everyone in this House will wish to send our most heartfelt condolences to her children Carol and Mark to her grandchildren and to her many, many loyal friends.”
