Yes the disabled that need the money to help them, well theres no enough funds, come on a pinch out of the funneral money would have helped a lot''''' and thease people are alive dont the disabled suffer enough.
I totally agree with all the comments I have read about Thatchers funeral, Unfortunately we can moan and shout as much as we like but the Tories are going to do what the hell they want whilst in Government, The only way to hit them back is to get out there on polling day and place your vote in the box that you think will be best for the people of this Country and mine is firmly with Labour.
Nice to see she stayed true to the end and past .She coulden't resist an opportunity to screw us
My daughter hasn't even been able to get DLA , even though she spends a lot of time in bed due to M.E. fed up
Me too Kim
I consider this to be theft of tax payers money, the government are civil servents elected by the people of this country to serve us and not to do what ever they like to suite themselves. £10,000,000 of tax payers money spent on a funeral of a very wealthy family who could, and should have paid for themselves. Given the state of this country for the poorer members of this country who are homeless, and being made homeless, and those now losing dla and other benefit cutbacks, and rising...

Given the state of this country for the poorer members of this country who are homeless, and being made homeless, and those now losing dla and other benefit cutbacks, and rising unemploment I think it just goes to show just how much the conservatives don't care about the less well off, they only think of themselves and the wealthy people of this sick sad country of ours. I strongly feel that the time has come for this present government to be got rid of, and for the dissolvement of the conservative party as they are a party who have a history of bullying and destroying the lives of the less well off.
The only problem with a lot of "civil service" personnel (MPs included) is that they are frequently less than civil, and you get very poor service!
How very true Robin
Speaking as an OAP who worked all my life. Sometimes 2 jobs, the family are rich enough to pay for her funeral. Because I paid into a second pension I,m paying tax. This makes me so angry that my money is being used this way. Her cronies i.e. Cameron, Osborne, Johnstone, etc are targeting disabled people cutting their payments by saying theres no cash and then they use taxpayers well earned cash for a funeral is despicable.
totally agree! i a mum of 2 special needs, like people also in th same boat, is getting cuts and less money to live on , with the cost of fuel, food and esentials to make ends meet! my husband worked for a company over 20yrs, made redundant and its difficult to have a job and have children to care for ! we would both be happy to work! you find me a wand and ilkl work miricals!
as for spending millions on thachers funeral is disgracfull!leaving the vuneralbal people aside and less thought of........which have more heart than that witch alone .
A funeral of a loved one is a very private affair. The family must have been so disappointed that the funeral was taken over by the Tory publicity wagon! I am angry that I was forced to pay for a publicly funded funeral for an individual who could well afford to pay for her own funeral! We are told that the UK has no money? Although there are always funds for a Tory event such as this feeble show of glorification of the Thatcher days - this government should be ashamed of themselves. ...

I did not agree to my taxes being used in this way. I hope this will rally those who didn't vote in the last elections to take notice and vote in the next elections to show their feelings about what this government is doing. The ex prime minister was not revered by enough people to warrant the country paying for this funeral, nor for the BBC cost of the funeral television coverage.
Absolutely true! Sadly my dear I don't think they even give a dam about what you and I think any more, or about what happens to our world in the future......'they' really DON'T care!
This is so wrong when there are many homeless people and animals. Many people are starving to death, why spend so much on a woman whose passed away, this is so wrong. This money should have been spent on so many millions living, who need help. The top priority should be showing compassion to the those who need help urgently.
THE HOMLESS ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE GOVERMENTS LIST FOR HAND OUTS. THEY ARE NOT DOING ENOUGH TO GET THEM BACK OFF THE STREET
To spend that on any funeral is disgusting when all those starving need food as well as benefits that are needed are being cut!!
This evil women cost the Country so much during her life. In every possible aspect. She cost us all so dearly with only the ruling class benefiting. While the rest of us footed the bill. Even now after dying in the lap of luxary. She still sponges on what's left of this once proud Welfare State. If it is true only the good die young. It explains how she lasted so long. Damn her.
you are so right Sarah
This money could have been wisely spent by donations to the food banks, machinery in hospitals to save lives or cancer medication which is denied too many patients. She has taken from the taxpayers in death as she did when living. I find it a sad day where people rejoyced in her death.
have to say SHE didn't take the money for her funeral .the government allowed it to happen .I did not vote for her ever .or conservative's. I do agree with the rest of what has been said. I want to know WHY she had a near state funeral anyway.or am I stupid.she wasn't royalty.!! am I missing something here.as said the country has no money !!!!!!!!! wish I had there magic fairy is all I can say. shame she could not be buried quietly by her family and friends .instead of all this stuff. sorry for her family and friends who loved her
True I wouldn't miss her lol
£10,000,000 could have gone to help the disabled and the NHS in so many ways lets spread the word people
I really think this so unfair ,there are a lot of disabled people in this country genuine ones I mean, not people making out they are disabled, these are the people they the government need to sort out .,As for paying all that for a funeral ,Where did it come from,and where is it going,i bet the undertakers are laughing.m y friend is disabled , he gets s..all to live on. as you say keith spread the word ! what we want is a revolution,im afraid there is a lot of people that moan but don't do anything .
how right you are Jeanne.
I am sorry to say but this Government have got their act all wrong, They are the ones I am all right Jack, Money sticks to Money and that is their life . They have no Idea how the People of this country have to live they are the wrong ones in Government Yes I am Ashamed of them the way they treat the people of this country. 10 Million where did that come from ????? I don't think we are being told the truth but what is new there.
