Thatchers Funeral Significantly cheaper than previously thought

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Baroness Thatcher's funeral cost us 6p each - Telegraph

    Telegraph says £4 Million as it's a sexy round number, but the article claims £3.6 Million, of which £2 Million was an opportunity cost and therfore debatable.

    No indications of how much the Thatcher estate is forking out.

    Anybody feeling silly for jumping on the outrage bus?

  2. This really needed to go in the thatcher thread, it'll only end up with people dicking about.
  3. I tried, but it appears closed. If a MOD could merge it for me, that would be appreciated.

    But I felt it was newsworthy, otherwise will have people muttering for decades to come about how her funeral cost £10 Million. I'm a great believer in fact.

  5. You'll still need to wait for her will to be read as there may not be a need to throw six pence away.

    Considering she footed the bill for her the FCOs work in finding her son when he got lost, I'll bet that she's put a lot of her own money towards it.

  9. Please don't try and deal in facts when discussing anything Thatcher. The rapid socialists and anti Thatcher Brigade who really don't have a clue will just fill a thread with false drivel.

    Especially CAARPS who is a scouser, so clearly knows nothing about politics...

    All socialists are ***** : )

  12. She fronted this down

    and people are still whinging about closing a few pits.

    She might well have been before my time however compared to the spineless bouffants who infest public office now,..... well there's no comparison.

  13. Made up figure originally by the Daily Mirror, picked up by the usual suspects. I would happily contribute 18 pence for the funerals of Blair, Prescott and Brown.
