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.

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 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!

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.

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.

That is disgusting, when the government say they don't have money for the NHS or the Disabled, why should the tax payers pay for her funeral, when the government do nothing for the the tax payer.!!!

Julie Parsons

Why have we got to pay for the funeral? No one helped me to bury my husband a few months ago. They offered me just over £900, then last month they asked me when I was going to pay them back? He only died in November just, then February they asked for it back. I'm struggling as I'm also disabled, they give it me in one hand then take it back in the other Then they want us to pay for her when she and her family have lots if money and can afford it. Pay for your own mums funeral, I don't care who she was.

These are conservative government values, they look after the elite with tax payers money. They have never changed in 200 years. Thatcher's family had enough money to bury her, with their criminal and dodgy dealings since 1980, when many of us are worried about when our own parents die because there is NO money in our pots after working bloody hard. I suggest we all vote them out next election. Any other party is better than this one. Yes, shame on their corrupt values, the majority of British people expect better than this.
