I don't like MP's (Fullstop). But You have to admire Mrs Thatcher for the way she stuck to her guns.
I believe she had asked not to have a state funeral. I don't now what the rules are regarding this but Mr Churchill certainly had one. I suppose if every prime minister were to have one we would be always having the damn things. Have we got enough Troops and Matelots/RAF Erks etc., to line the route? I doubt it.
