    Default Should Thatcher get a state funeral?

    A Thatcher state funeral would be bound to lead to protests | Seumas Milne | Comment is free | The Guardian

    IMO no - though I would like her to be homoured there are plenty who think she should not. Compare her reputation to that of Churchill for instance.

    By the same conditions as Chruchill she lead us through a successful war so yes
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    I propose the US Navy dispose of the body at sea within 24 hours.

    I voted no.

    As much as I admire her, she was a divisive figure. State funerals are only for those people who unite us as a nation.
