Burmese pro-democracy campaigner Aung San Suu Kyi has officially opened the Labour party’s new London office space, according to an article published by the Guardian.
Located in Brewers Green, Westminster, the office will act as a headquarters for the party – Â housing executive directors and playing host to shadow cabinet meetings.
Speaking to the assembled staff, Â San Suu Kyi said: “In the end it is people who are most important, not buildings.
“Although this is a beautiful building and I would not mind taking it back to Burma with me,” she joked.
Also present at the opening, Labour leader Ed Miliband told San Suu Kyi: “As the main party of opposition in Britain, hoping to be the government, I can think of no better person than the most famous leader of the opposition in the world, if I may say so – and the most distinguished, and the most courageous and the most brave – to open our offices.”
