Nigel Lawson, a former Conservative chancellor, passed away at 91. He served in several cabinet positions under Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s, and his influence was regarded as among the greatest among all UK chancellors after World War II. He was referred to as “an inspiration to me and many others” by Minister Rishi Sunak. He is credited with developing solid entrepreneurial forces quickly, and many UK communities remember this period as painful deindustrialisation and growing inequality.

Tributes to Nigel Lawson:
As chancellor, the prime minister posted a photo of himself on social media with the caption: “One of the things I did was hang a picture of Nigel Lawson above my desk. Former British prime minister Boris Johnson hailed Lawson as a “fearless and original flame of free market Conservatism” who “helped millions of British people achieve their dreams.”. Liz Truss, a fellow former prime minister, called him a “true giant of 20th-century politics” and said “his time at the helm of the Treasury was transformational.”. He “inspired all his successors, leaving the country more prosperous and enterprising,” according to current Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, whose shoes were “impossible to fill.”. According to former chancellor Norman Lamont, he was “not at all a pompous character,” and had a “great sense of humour and fun.”.
