Respect MP George Galloway has said he will not be taking part in Parliamentary tributes to Baroness Thatcher today.
Asked if he would be attending, he said: "I understand it is not a debate, so no. If it were a debate about the legacy of Margaret Thatcher I would be first in the queue for prayers. It is a state-organised eulogy."
