Stop the ceremonial funeral of Baroness Thatcher

At the moment it is the current plan to give the recently passed away, Baroness Thatcher, a ceremonial funeral. As the last two people to be given such an honour were Lady Diana and the Queen Mother, it seems a little bizarre that perhaps the most controversial Prime Minister in Britain's history be given the same privilege. Although she may herself be no longer with us her ideas and legacy lives on. Among these are the closure of numerous coal mines, the privatization of the railways, and the introduction of Section 28. Of course we can admire Baroness Thatcher for her leadership skills and determination, and some would argue that we should. Yet is it not slightly unjust that a person who has evoked so much hatred over the years be given the same accolade? Is it not slightly wrong to celebrate the life of someone in this way when they have caused such irreparable damage? Here's the chance to put a stop to that celebration.

Letter to
Conservative Government
Stop the ceremonial funeral of Baroness Thatcher.
