Labour leader Ed Miliband described Margaret Thatcher as a "unique and towering figure" who "defined her age" during a warm tribute in the House of Commons. Speaking in front of busy, but not packed, Labour benches he said:
"Whatever your view of her, Margaret Thatcher was a unique and towering figure.
"I disagreed with much of what she did but I respect what her death means for many, many people who admired her and I honour her personal achievements.
"Today we also remember a prime minister who defined her age."
