What is wrong with the U.K. authorities, why can't they do something about their country? Are they giving in to Islamism who curtail freedom, and wants to implement their barbaric Sharia law to the foreign land who gave them a chance to have a better life (or practice polygamous funded by the hardworking people?). Brits should start taking back their country, and kick the savages! U.K. gov should wake up from their slumber, and begin taking back the power they had given away to the...

British should start empowering themselves; should unite as one, against Islamism!!

If he were given a state funeral it would send a message to the type of brutal misguided extremists that do this kind of thing. The message would be that we esteem and honour our servicemen while crying shame on them for the low-minded inhuman behaviour they manifest.

That is a nice thought, but I don't believe it will happen. These people don't care at all about the lives of those that they consider infidels, even though, the British and American military have helped them becfome free. Now, when we get out of Afghanistan, they will go back there and start their campaigns to do damage to the "Infidels." I will personally will always be an infidel to them, and am glad to be a Christian and not a Muslim. They say that Islam is a faith of peace. Thbey...

Those that are jihadists are animals and deserve to be put to death or killed, which ever comes first!

I guess you are right Fernando, These people are so steeped in hatred that nothing or no one can reach them. The kind of brutality displayed in the manner in which this young soldier was killed shows a very depraved low mentality that is beyond redemption. Human beings with fanatic mindsets, bent on hatred is a monstrous thing especially when it is religious fanaticism.

In the heat of sentiment it is easy to let the heart rule the head. A funeral is a very personal ceremony for friends and family and in Lee's case, his fellow soldiers. It should remain that way rather than being turned into a public event. Let his family and friends bury Lee and grieve in peace.
Whatever is decided the least the nation should do is pay for the full cost of the funeral and ensure the family get all the help and support they need.

I am a PROUD BRITISH MUSLIM. I know that some people are unable to place these words in one sentence and this saddens me deeply. For me Drummer Lee Rigby is closer to my heart than so many coward so called muslims. May he rest in peace. They are driven by deranged hatred and individuals and funded by autocratic regimes such as Saudi Arabia. My parents are originally from Iraq, these muslim extremists target that population in the thousands every month just because they believe in a different...

I would like to share this link which for me highlights how under-represented moderate people are:( I think it will be an eye opener for many.

I have proudly signed the petition, but do think a full military funeral would be more befitting.

I agree with u Mudher. I see so much senseless in all this hate. In the words of a fellow Afghanistan veteran, 'why can't we all just get on?' I feel so much sadness for where we are at as now as humans. This is truly ridiculous. Please could everyone stop killing each other please?? Is that too much too ask?? Why not give it a try FFS?????

That is exactly what they wanted the police to do - so they could then die as martyrs for 'their faith in the name of Allah'. Now they will have to suffer punishment on this earth and they have lost what they wanted. A State funeral is only held for Royalty and certain people in authority. Soldiers who are killed in battle are given a Military funeral with honours where their families, comrades and friends, as well as the general public pay their respects.

Lee deserves the same kind of funeral as he died for his country, having also fought for his country in Afghanistan along with so many who have died and so many who have lost limbs (which the Press choose to ignore). In their own way - they too have been struck with a 'meat cleaver'!! These brave young men and women deserve any honour they have earned - Lee deserves his honours too. God rest his soul and help his family.

These two things shouldn't be allowed too die; my heart went out too lee's family when they bravely went on tv too express there grief; hanging isn't the answer; they need some other form of punishment; after all lee was unarmed & unaware of his fate too come;i'd put them unarmed into the barracks where lee was based & let the soilders based there take care of these two things that don't even have the right too be called human!!

me personally would have them handcuffed and then dumped in the middle of one of our safari parks when its feeding time, some thing like lions or something (i have other ideas regarding mature to grim to write though) no human rights just let nature fix it, after all they acted worse than animals

Whilst I support most peoples good intention towards Lee and his wife and his son, please remember every other serving servicemen and service women who have given their lives in our great nations name. To change the response that all fallen are honoured, with full military funerals, would be wrong. No one person should be treated any differently, no matter what the events leading to their deaths.
However we feel towards these murderers and yes I do support the bringing back of the death...

However we feel towards these murderers and yes I do support the bringing back of the death penalty, maybe this war will go on for possibly decades on our soil.
R.I.P. Lee Rigby we will remember you.

One thing you are missing here - Lee Rigby dose not have a home coming funeral and his funeral needs to be recognised, as his awful death, should not happen in the UK or anywhere.

I certainly agree with your comments Peter, regarding his awful death, but Lee will I'm sure receive a full military funeral with possiblly thousands of grieving people showing their support and respects for Lee and his family.I just believe that he should not be treated any different from all of our fallen heros.

he did not die on a battle field, he was brutally murdered, big diffrance, to how others in services loose their lives, so he should have at least a full millitrey send off, and his wife and son should be supported to the full,

I done my basic training in the barracks there at woolwich, then it was the Depot Regiment for the Royal Artillery, to do such evil to such a great squaddy defies belief!, my sympathy and wishes go out to all his family and freinds, and i hope the government does the right thing and goes beyond a prison sentence on this one by deporting people and losing all possessions in this country

Elaine,the shooting of a soldier is treason,and still carries the death penalty,and therefore any one committing a crime of that nature has to face the consequences,as far as I can gather when the sentence of "hanging" was abolished,there was no mentioned of "treason"being invoked ,therefore these rules still apply,but in the British judicial system,some barrister who will no doubt be defending these people (with BRITISH legal aid) will find a loop hope to enable a judge to slap them on the wrist as punishment.

The root of this though lies in politics, the labour government of the day openly admit they actively sought out immigrants to flood the UK so that they could stay in power forever, cherie blair even set up a legal team to ensure nothing stood in the way of the influx of immigrants, all designed to make sure Tony Blair got the top job within the EU commission and even more money.........and in the process destroy all that we love about our country.......total destruction from...
