The Tax Payers Alliance: Campaign against expenditure of taxpayers money on M. Thatcher's funeral
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.

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.
