Green Party leader extends sympathy after death of former Prime Minister

Green Party Leader Steven Agnew has extended sympathies to the family and friends of former Conservative Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher who died this morning aged 87.

“Coming from the other end of the political spectrum, myself and my party are opposed to the policies that Margaret Thatcher promoted and implemented,” Mr Agnew said.

“Those polices still cast a long shadow over UK politics and her vision of society is what underpins the current cuts to welfare provision.

“However, on such an occasion as a person’s passing, it is important to separate the personal from the political.

“Baroness Thatcher’s death will be a sad loss to her family, friends and former colleagues.

“I send condolences to them on behalf of the Green Party in Northern Ireland.”
