Thatcher's former cabinet minister Norman Tebbit paid an emotional tribute to his old boss and friend in the House of Commons today.
He spoke movingly of the support she provided his family after he and his wife were injured in an IRA bomb attack at the Grand Hotel in Brighton. He praised her courage and popularity, and reflected on her demise, saying:
"I left her, I fear at the mercy of her friends, that I do regret."
