Bassetlaw MP John Mann has paid tribute to Baroness Margaret Thatcher, who has died following a stroke this morning (Monday) aged 87.

Baroness Thatcher was Conservative prime minister from 1979 to 1990.

She was the first woman to hold the post.

Mr Mann said: “She was the first woman to be British prime minister - I hope we don’t have to wait too long in the future for there to be another.”

“Obviously she was a controversial figure with her policies but at least everyone knew where she stood and that contrasts with alot of politicians these days.”
