It is announced that she will have a ceremonial funeral with military honours at St Paul's Cathedral.


eRRolSheep Report 8 Apr 2013 16:33

I think that in some ways that is appropriate


~Lynda~ Report 8 Apr 2013 16:37

More for the historical aspect, I will go to see the ceremonial funeral, as I do most state events that happen in London.

I will also be respectful that it is a funeral of someone's Mother/Grandmother/family member/friend.

If AnnC is not allowed to say she dilikes Maggie then how come 2 have wrapped the same words in their post.And I have wrote that I don't like her.

Seems to be whats good for the goose is good for the gander.


eRRolSheep Report 8 Apr 2013 16:41

Inclined to agree with you there Sue.

Yes Lynda, let's not forget that.


LaGooner Report 8 Apr 2013 16:42

do prime ministers normally get a special funeral i remember churchill got one and he used troops to attack striking miners coincidence


eRRolSheep Report 8 Apr 2013 17:06

Terryj - not the same. Churchill had a state funeral


Porkie_Pie Report 8 Apr 2013 17:13

Although I never copied what AnnC said, I did contribute to her thread but removed it after her post which was not simply to say she didn't liked Margret Thatcher Her post was full of abusive comment and HATE, I stated on the thread that I was removing my post because I didn't realise it was a Hate thread.

Porkie Pie,,

I was talking about what is written on this thread NOT AnnC'thread as I didn't read it as it had been deleted before I came on the boards this morning.


AnnCardiff Report 8 Apr 2013 17:28

I refute that it was full of hate - I pointed out that I held her responsible for the decline of our manufacturing industry


Porkie_Pie Report 8 Apr 2013 17:30

Sue, I'm just setting the record straight, Ann said in regard to her thread that she only said she didn't like Margaret Thatcher which as I've posted above was not the case.



Porkie_Pie Report 8 Apr 2013 17:32

Ann, refute all you like, I was going to Report your post after I had thought about it but you had delete the thread before I got the chance



eRRolSheep Report 8 Apr 2013 17:33

Again, may I please say...

"Just please don't let it turn nasty (not directed that at anyone in particular)"

Joan, sadly we shall have days of this because she was such an influential part of British history


Gins Report 8 Apr 2013 17:34

I did not celebrate her in 'life', I will not celebrate nor mourn her in 'death'...I try to be a good person


AnnCardiff Report 8 Apr 2013 17:37

how could you consider reporting me for saying I never liked her plus the fact tht she ruined our manufcuring industry - it is my right to say what I thought about her and I did not contravene rules of this site

others have posted much the same but I don't see you jumping on them


LilyL Report 8 Apr 2013 17:38

terryj - Churchill also saw off Hitler! Not sure that there were many politicians around then who could or would have inspired such leadership! His funeral was in recognition of a great man at a time of dire danger from a grateful nation. Mrs Thatcher too was a couragous strong and dedicated leader, and I think people have forgotten what a shambles this country was when she came to power and how deeply embarassing it was to admit to being British to the rest of the world, laughing stock comes to mind!! I think she was an amazing woman and we could do with someone like her NOW!


eRRolSheep Report 8 Apr 2013 17:41

LilyL you are absolutely spot on.
Ann - stick by ya guns, I do not see anything wrong in what you have posted.


Porkie_Pie Report 8 Apr 2013 17:47

Ann, I did read your post and as stated you said far more, May be you should not have been so quick to deleted the thread/post, So others may have had time to read your post.

As for facts about her being responsible for ruining our manufacturing industry is not a fact, ...... it's your opinion,

My opinion is that the manufacturing industry required no help from anyone,... They did it all by themselves
