Cameron: Britain Lost ‘Great Leader’ in Thatcher

Monday, 08 Apr 2013 08:39 AM

British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday it was with great sadness he learned of the death of Margaret Thatcher, his predecessor as Conservative leader and prime minister who ruled from 1979 to 1990.

“We have lost a great leader, a great prime minister, and a great Briton,” Cameron said in a statement shortly after a spokesman for the Thatcher family said the former prime minister had died peacefully following a stroke.

Queen Elizabeth also expressed sadness and said she would be sending a private message of sympathy to the family.
