Is there any speech dialogue on record on Palestine independence day on 1988 given by the Great Britain Prime minister?

I know that Great Britain was once a proud supporter of Palestine.

I've edited to improve your grammar. Are you asking if a British Prime Minister has ever given a speech about Palestine on the Palestinian independence day? – American Luke Aug 10 '12 at 20:34
@Luke - Yes, thank you. – Victor Aug 10 '12 at 20:54
@Luke: Changing "Palestine" to "Israel" drastically changed the sense of the question. Victor: What do you mean by Palestinian Independence Day? 15 November 1988? 14 May 1948? Or something else? – Nate Eldredge Aug 11 '12 at 1:30
Whoops. My bad. – American Luke Aug 11 '12 at 15:15
@user571376: You've got it mixed up. In 1988 the PLO self-proclaimed a state (the procalamation was held Algiers), which was not recognized by anyone since it didn't exist in practice: the PLO was holed-up in Tunis and had no actual control of anything. The Palestinian Authority was created later, in 1993, as a result of the Oslo Accords between the PLO and Israel. – Felix Goldberg Dec 3 '12 at 17:14
