BARONESS Warsi revealed her admiration for former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher calling her the greatest.
Warsi said: “She was Britain’s greatest peace-time Prime Minister because she was tough, responsible and did great things for our country.”
Thatcher has recently been portrayed by Meryl Streep in the biopic film ‘The Iron Lady’.
Warsi is co-chairman of the Conservative party. In 2005 she ran as the Conservative parliamentary candidate in Dewsbury, but lost out to Labour’s Shahid Malik.
She recently met the Pope and said that British society was under threat from what she called “militant secularisation”.
