The TPA claim to stand for all taxpayers, we would like them to take up our call for prudent use of taxpayers money. M Thatcher's funeral should be privately funded - it is what she would have wanted. Corporate logos on the coffin, advert breaks during the service, product placement in prominent places, a fully ticketed event and a heavily sponsored souvenir programme.
- Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance
As you claim to stand for TaxPayers, I would very much appreciate it if you took a principled stand again the spending of up to £10 million of our money on the funeral of M Thatcher. It really shouldn't cost more than £5,000 to bury or cremate someone in these times of austerity.
If anyone wants a big funeral, there's plenty of private money that can be attracted.
