Your wrong, they set fire to the one in Goldthorpe.

Er yes, I know.  However, the protesters at the funeral - and the exchange of posts was about the funeral - did not burn an effigy.  They didn't even have one.

I've just read today that when the cost is worked out the funeral will have only been a fraction of the 1o million pounds that has been bandied about!!!


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

it would have been illegal for several reasons from the point of view of public safety and public order.

L'angelo thank you for your comments, perhaps now is the time to let things calm down even though peoples opinions will remain.

Burning it would have; carrying it wouldn't I shouldn't think since they carried banners.

I come from St Helens: coalmining country where there was and still is a lot of bad feeling towards Thatcher.  However, nobody here had street parties to celebrate her death and nor did they burn an effigy.  There are areas of major social deprivation in St Helens too.

I come from Featherstone where bad feeling towards Thatcher and social deprivation exist in a major way. As far as I'm aware there was no celebration that I'm aware of. people choose to do different things. Does this demonstration by a few people in Goldthorpe mark them out as somehow of a different make up to other places?

No.  It just means those who were involved lack class and dignity.

perhaps carrying a banner was more convenient you can furl it and unfurl it for instance

 

good grief

The choir was amazing, the readings were appropriate, the sermon was incredible and St Paul's was outstanding.


Sounds divine.....

I don't think Thatcher's funeral was barbaric.  It was very dignified and respectful.  The choir was amazing, the readings were appropriate, the sermon was incredible and St Paul's was outstanding.

Very respectful, one soldier who was detailed to carry her box asked not to because he came from Doncaster mining stock, my source his dad.


Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

For 10 million it should have been and when the final total of policing etc is added I bet it's nearer 15 million.

Oh dear.  I enjoyed watching the funeral (insofar as anyone can enjoy a funeral).  I like listening to choristers, I enjoy listening to a good sermon now and again, and St Paul's is an incredible cathedral.  What's deferential about that?

I think it was the Daily Mirror which first came up with that figure.  No audit has been done yet on the costs.  I will wait until it has and then listen out for the opposition to see if they agree that the sum announced is accurate.  In the meantime, I will remain sceptical about the various costs claimed by lefwingers.

I don't know what's funny or deferential about enjoying listening to a choir, listening to a good sermon now and again, and thinking that St Paul's is an amazing building.  Perhaps you can enlighten me?

Probably too busy knocking one out over the old cow.
