Cameron presents Thatcher with Lifetime Achievement Award

6th February 2008

Conservative Party leader David Cameron escorted Baroness Thatcher into a reception at London's Guildhall where he presented her with a lifetime achievement award from the investment bank Morgan Stanley.

The night celebrated "Great Britons" and the audience was studded with figures from the worlds of finance, art and music.

The singer Annie Lennox rubbed shoulders with the Olympic medallist James Cracknell. The founder of the Eden Project Tim Smit sipped champagne next to comedian Rob Brydon.

But everyone was outshone by the Iron Lady, resplendent in a gold suit. Fashion journalist Hilary Alexander said: "She looks fantastic. She looks like Britannia."

David Cameron seemed as star-struck as everyone else. He helped Baroness Thatcher to their table and then lavished her with praise as he presented her with the award.
