Commenting on the news that Baroness Thatcher died this morning, Bexleyheath and Crayford MP David Evennett MP said:
“I was very sad to learn of the death of Margaret Thatcher and my condolences go out to her family at this time. I believe that she was the greatest Prime Minister of my lifetime and it was a real privilege to work closely with her when I was elected in 1983 until she resigned in 1990. She of course started her political career in the Dartford constituency, which at the time included Erith, where she met Denis. She always asked me about the town and kept a keen interest in the area.”
