E petition

Fuck a stoat, Fally. That would be a state funeral to end all state funerals.

I know a better idea. Pay for it with all the state benefits of those who will be signing the petition.
Actually, I'd like to suggest we introduce some of the ancient ways - particularly the ones where they immolate or bury a few thousand 'specially selected' individuals along with the ruler, coupled to the Chinese tradition of getting the 'honoured ones' to pay for it.

Fcuk socialism , the refuge of the malingerer.

I`d be happy to vote in favor of a tax payer financed funeral for Maggie , she did more for the UK than any labour crook.

TBH, I don't see the rationale for giving her a state funeral. I'm not sure that history will be all that kind to her, regardless of all the current bile on either side of the debate.

Let's not forget that her offspring are truly, truly awful people - a state funeral would serve to give them undeserved prominence?

Why was it done? I'm intrigued.
Because more was being spent on milk than school books. And she only stopped it for those over 7 years old.

Documents revealed under the 30 year rule show that she opposed the ban because it would "arouse widespread public antagonism".

I don't know. However, I do know it was done for a reason, not to spite people. Kids under the age of 7 still got milk for free. It was probably an unnecessary expense that she thought would be a good idea to get rid of. I actually agree with it, why should people be getting free milk at school? Should the government give them free milk when they are at home and when they are at work?
The problem is that there are so many varied reasons given on the net, its hard to say the exact reason definitively.

I believe that Labour did the same in 1968 under Harold Wilson in 1968, but nobody goes on about it. So it looks like Labour just try to keep trying to such bitterness alive by forever shouting milk snatcher when referring to Maggie.

More on the milk thing.

From my research on the internet, free milk for kids was introduced in 1950 to give impoverished kids nutrition as there were quite a number due to the recent world war. Fast forward 40 years ahead and there are very few impoverished kids (if any) due to the benefits that are given, so there is no need for the added expense of giving milk to kids that probably don't appreciate or drink it.

Back when I was at school, at least half the milk went to waste, because we did not want to drink it.

I don't fully understand why she's been granted a State Funeral. She's no Churchill.
