MPs across the borough have paid tribute to the 'formidable' Margaret Thatcher who died earlier today.
Mary Macleod, MP for Brentford and Isleworth is appearing on CBBC's Newsround this evening to talk about the former Prime Minister - who died this morning at the age of 87 after a stroke - and to tell people how she helped inspire Ms Macleod to go into politics.
In a previous interview, the Conservative MP said she was encouraged by the UKs only female Prime Minister, especially with regards to the way she climbed from being a grocer's daughter to being the top political leader in the land.
Seema Malhotra, Labour MP for Feltham and Heston, also respected Baroness Thatcher, despite their political differences. She said: "Lady Thatcher was Prime Minister when I first stood in my junior school elections at Heston Primary School, and I remember her as a formidable character.
"As the first female Prime Minister she changed history. She was a giant political figure who impacted greatly the thinking of a generation of politicians, particularly on the centre ground of British politics.
"She was controversial, and Labour disagreed with many of the actions she took. However there is tremendous respect across parties for her political achievements and personal strength, and our thoughts are with her family at this time."
