    Just watching Lady T's funeral at St Paul's. Very dignified and very British. I think even the assholes are showing some respect and keeping quiet.

    I have no idea. And she's dead and cremated now so we can't ask her.

    Assholes being the people that used it as an excuse to vandalize property and get violent, I think.

    So if they're showing respect and being quiet, how does that make them assholes?

    I don't think they were being quiet. I read some were booing but the cheers made it harder to hear them. But I think security did a good job at keeping the protesters/thugs away. Or they were all in school.

    I turned that BS off the radio today. May she burn in hell with the weight of all the people's lives she ruined pressing down on her.

    This.

    I do agree that £10 million of public money for a funeral is excessive. The Thatcher family can afford to pay a big chunk of that themselves. Her golden boy son Mark mixes with some very shady types in, ironically, South Africa.

    Given the economy at the moment.... £10 million stinks.



    and I can't believe that they were given a fucking hereditary title rather than just a life peerage. SIR Mark Thatcher? Well, I guess it helps him sell weapons to shady characters from shady regimes.

    When she retired and/or was shafted according to your point of view rather than receive a lifetime title for herself as an ex PM, she asked for a heretitary title for her husband Denis in recognititon of his years of loyal support. So he got a baronetcy, thus making her Lady Thatcher as a baronet's wife, and when the old duffer died their son Mark inherited the title. When he dies his son Michael will get it. It was a sneaky way to give future Thatcher generations a title starting with the Golden Boy who she was much closer to then his sister Carol who was a daddy's girl. Lady T always preferred the company of men to women. The vast majority of people at the funeral service were men but that could be because the vast majority of political types are still men.

    I was more fascinated to see Carol Thatcher with her 16yrs younger Swiss ski instructor boyfriend.

    The Thatcher grandchildren live in Texas with Mark's first wife and are both fundie Christeens.

    Bless them all!

    And yet the headlines in the local newspapers over the past few weeks have been about how local food banks have been overwhelmed by people in desperate need of help, how huge numbers of children are recipients of these handouts, how local people on benefits in this town can expect to be close to £700 per year worse off under the new reforms and how we have some of the highest drink related and mental health issues of the NW. But they can still come up with £10 million to bury the old bitch...
