An inspiration to a generation

Richard Ashworth Conservative MEP for the South-East and leader of the Conservatives in the European Parliament today attended the funeral of Baroness Thatcher along with 2,300 guests at St Pauls Cathedral.

“Baroness Thatcher was an inspiration to a generation.  Her vision and leadership almost single-handedly transformed a dysfunctional economy”.

The late Prime Minister coffin was taken from the Palace of Westminster to the funeral at StPauls Cathedral.  The procession was accompanied by the sounds of applause by those lining the route.

“We owe her a huge debt of gratitude – even those who may not be clear-sighted enough to acknowledge it.”
