Politicians and parties across Ealing express sorrow and sadness at the death of The Queen

With the news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II on 8 September 2022, Ealing politicians and their local parties have expressed their sorrow on hearing the news.

Ealing Conservatives
“Ealing’s Conservative Councillors are deeply saddened by the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who has passed away at 96 after 70 years on the throne. We offer our heartfelt condolences to the whole of the Royal Family.
Yet through the grief we smile at the example of this incredible life devoted to the people of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Our late Queen has been at the centre of one of the busiest periods of human history for longer than any other statesperson, worldwide. Just in Britain, her first Prime Minister was born in 1874; her last, whom she invited to take up post two days ago, was born in 1975!
The Crown passes without a break to King Charles III, who succeeds to the throne in the same spirit of public service – that indefatigable interest in national life and making things better for everybody. Charles III will have our respect, support and love as he takes on the arduous task of modern monarchy.
God Save The King!”

Ealing Liberal Democrats
“We are all saddened about the news on The Queen’s death. The Queen has dedicated her life to duty and public service to the country and The Commonwealth. At times of uncertainty, she was a constant to our nation and provided us a sense of comfort.  Her leadership in meeting the relatives of those who lost their lives in the Grenfell disaster showed her great compassion.
In Covid, her positive attitude she showed to offer hope for many people who had suffered so much. Giving the George Cross to the NHS showed her respect of those amazing keyworkers.  Ealing Liberal Democrats sends our condolences to the residents of Ealing and to The Royal Family. In a reign which spanned 70 years of public services for our nation, she will be sorely missed. She was an inspiration to us all.”

Councillor Peter Mason for Southall Green and leader of Ealing Labour and Ealing Council
“The people of the London Borough of Ealing collectively mourn the passing of Her Majesty, The Queen.
Her Majesty made a solemn promise at the start of her reign that her whole life would be dedicated to our service. Many residents of this borough will recall with great affection the events and engagements her Majesty attended in this borough and reflect on the historic moments that we have as a community experienced together under her moral and spiritual leadership as our monarch.
The pride and devotion she so often demonstrated to us was reflected with such warmth and grace in the thanksgiving for her service in this the Platinum Jubilee year, at street parties and celebrations across our borough.
We now share in the grief of the nation and of the Royal Family, that our Sovereign Lady, Queen Elizabeth the Second has passed away.”
