Tony Blair: Thatcher death celebration parties in 'poor taste'

9 April 2013 Last updated at 16:21 BST

Tony Blair has criticised people who held parties to "celebrate" the death of Baroness Thatcher, saying they were in "pretty poor taste".

The former Labour prime minister urged critics of his Conservative predecessor to "show some respect".

The comments come after parties took place in several cities to mark the 87-year-old's death on Monday.

Mr. Blair was interviewed by BBC Radio Ulster's Stephen Nolan.
