The Mayor of London said that Margaret Thatcher’s greatest achievement was to “knock on the head the defeatism and the pessimism of the post-war consensus”.
“She freed millions of people to buy their own homes, to buy shares in British companies and yes, sometimes the things that she said were tough, but I think when you look back, she was overwhelmingly right in her judgements,” he said.
“She was right about the unions, she was right about the threat of Soviet communism and I think she’s been proved overwhelmingly right about the euro.”
He added that her memory would live on and that Britain remained “very much in her debt”.
