Councillor Ann Holland in Tameside has apologised after she wished ‘Margaret Thatcher would go blind’.
Ann Holland made the controversial remarks during a Tameside council meeting – where £22m cuts were agreed.
Attacking cuts to the NHS, she listed public figures, including David Cameron and Prince Philip,who had been treated by the health service.
Coun Holland, a Labour member for Droylsden West, told the meeting: “Where did Margaret Thatcher go for her eyes – I dearly wish she’d go blind but she went to the NHS.”
Baroness Thatcher, 86, underwent laser eye surgery while in office in 1983.
