and to have privatised state funeral?
"Margaret Thatcher is to be given the ultimate accolade of a State funeral [at St Paul's] when she reaches the end of her days – the first British Prime Minister since Winston Churchill to be afforded such an honour."
"...but no fly-past for Maggie... and she 'does not want the public filing past her coffin'"
There will be publicly funded police. Perhaps there ought to be private security forces instead?
"should be funded and managed by the private sector to offer the best value and choice for end users and other stakeholders"
Its her legacy....and thus the most appropriate tribute this country could offer her.
On the other hand if we have to pay for it, then I feel that we should all be allowed to contribute our own 'content'
In keeping with the great lady's legacy, Margaret Thatcher's state funeral should be funded and managed by the private sector to offer the best value and choice for end users and other stakeholders
its so authentic, brilliant stuff
There should be a package of measures that ensure the public gets choice.
"oh, did you hear, Thatcher's dead!" a nearby woman turned looking mildly startled as i went on to finish the classic DiS thread OP. good times.
my gut does a wee elatory jump, then i find out she's still not dead.
She looks like one of the Skeksis from Dark Crystal. Surely nothing natural should look like that.
