Mr President, the environmental challenge which confronts the whole world demands an equivalent response from the whole world. Every country will be affected and no one can opt out. We should work through this great organisation and its agencies to secure world-wide agreements on ways to cope with the effects of climate change, the thinning of the Ozone Layer, and the loss of precious species. We need a realistic programme of action and an equally realistic timetable. Each country has to contribute, and those countries who are industrialised must contribute more to help those who are not. The work ahead will be long and exacting. We should embark on it hopeful of success, not fearful of failure.”

“What I am saying is that the only context in which we talk about sovereignty is in discussion with the Falkland Islanders and what they want and that is always the view that we’ve taken and they are British stock, most of them have been there longer than many people in Argentine. There were only 30 Argentineans on those Islands when they invaded so they’re British Islands, people there are British stock wishing to be British. They must look to us for they’re defence”


STORYLINE:

Former Prime Minister Baroness Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s first and only woman PM, died today (8 April 20133) after suffering a stroke, according to media reports.

Speaking to reporters in The Hague, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called the late Margaret Thatcher a pioneering leader for her contribution to peace and security, particularly at the height of the Cold War. He added that she was also a great model as the first woman Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and he expressed his deepest condolences to the Government of the United Kingdom and to her family members.

Baroness Thatcher was a British Conservative Party politician who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990 and Leader of the Conservative Party from 1975 to 1990.

She was the longest-serving British Prime Minister of the 20th Century, and is to date the only woman to have held the post.
