thenodrog Posted April 11, 2013 Share Posted April 11, 2013 I find it odd that she's going to get a big military funeral. Someone like Churchill I can understand, seeing as it was World War 2, but Thatcher? No doubting she was an iconic, society changing, strong leader but I cannot see why there needs to be such a big funeral. And does this mean Blair will get a similar funeral when he goes, seeing as he got involved in more wars, and lasted a similar length of time? I'd tend to agree. A funeral in St Pauls with a private burial / cremation and a monument or important building named after here would suffice imo. Churchill was an obvious exception because he held the country together when we went toe to toe with the mighty Adolph. We wern't around in those times but given the esteem that Churchill was held in I find it difficult to comprehend the result of the '46 General Election.
