Funeral put into perspective stupidity of a small minority

COMMENT: A business community that is simply the best

Have your say

I’ve just been to a funeral. It was sad, but also a celebration of the person’s life by so many friends and family – and it really put into perspective the stupidity of a small minority of people who thought it would be a good idea to protest at Margaret Thatcher’s funeral.

Now I know people are free to speak in this country without fear of being arrested.

But what on earth were these protesters hoping to achieve?

She’s dead. She doesn’t know what people are saying. The only ones their words and actions hurt are her family.

How would these people feel if they went to see a loved one off at Portchester Crematorium and people were lining the streets with vile placards?
