No state funeral for Thatcher

We the undersigned note the recent proposals that Lady Thatcher be given a state funeral upon her death. We feel that the legacy of this individual can, at best, be regarded as divisive and as such a state funeral is not appropriate. It should not be forgotten that as a direct result of her policies whole communities were destroyed. Regardless of individual feelings about her policies we do not feel a state funeral is appropriate to mark the passing of politicians whose legacy by definition is divisive. We therefore call on the government to not allow these plans to go ahead and for a statement to be issued to that effect immediatly.
