      I think she was only 50% to blame the other 50% was the mine workers unions who seemed to think that they ran the country.

      Well they gave Churchill 1 so I guess she should have 1 also.
      Also it's not a state funeral.
      Ceremonial funeral with military honours.

      All my family were miners and my hubby lost is job when the mines closed APS is correct the unions ruined a lot of mines being shut not just her.Im not a big fan of hers but the yobs that are coursing trouble on the street are too young to know anything and they are doing damage to lots of buildings ect and the damage they are doing will cost more that Maggies funeral.

      Were you of the same opinion for the funerals of Churchill,Diana & The Queen Mother ? or is it that you just didn't like Margaret Thatcher ?

      i wasnt around to have an opinion on churchills, and as for diana and the queen mother yes, they were as what we call royalty and all the world were watching, nxt it will be bloody cameron or who ever, she does not deserve it and as ive said i dont give a toss, how shes buried, but it should not be at tax payers expence

      Of what I know of what she did and her politics I can say that I didn't like her as a politician, her death didn't however bring me any joy. All around social networks I've seen her passing being received with joy and happiness, but I think it's kind of strange that the death of an old lady is being celebrated, despite what she did or didn't do.

      I agree with you, I was only 4 years old when she stopped being Prime Minister so I do not know much at all about what she did or didn't do but that was over 20 years ago now and should not still be held against her now, celebrating her death the way people are just seems wrong now because of what she did in the past and decisions she made in the past.

      I believe that the millions of dollars spent on Margaret Thatchers funeral is a disgrace when it could be spent on hospital beds or the homeless plus a lot more.

      I don't agree her death should be celebrated. I found her as an arrogant lady. Remember that is just my opinion.
