Is this true? because the Daily Mail reported it so obviously I need something more reliable than that grin

Last year Guardian reported 'there were no plans' for a state funeral.

Anyone heard this from anywhere other than the DM?

Why not ask a few ex-miners to line the streets! - I bet they'd be delighted.

rather shock at the op tbh, then I realised she isn't dead.

jimjamshaslefttheyurt Sun 13-Jul-08 21:45:54

I saw the title and thought she'd died. I was about to call dh to tell him.

god that photo is terrifying

bugger, I'm gonna have to put the champagne and party poppers away again now Slur.

Indeedy PW

In my defense, I thought exactly the same thing.

DP thinks there would be protests.

Personally I think Elvis Costello had the right idea to honour her death with. State funeral...pah!!

Blandmum Sun 13-Jul-08 21:47:53

fuck is she dead?

cheesesarnie Sun 13-Jul-08 21:48:01

i nearly shouted to dh!

S1ur Sun 13-Jul-08 21:48:01

Good good all of you can have same shock as me then, I thought I missed something (but googled quickly to check before mentioning it to DH)

onepieceoflollipop Sun 13-Jul-08 21:48:27

Some of the comments on that link are rather erm interesting. Lots of Americans singing her praises - very odd imo.

taipo Sun 13-Jul-08 21:48:35

Blimey, another one here who thought she'd snuffed it!

WilfSell Sun 13-Jul-08 21:48:42

if she dies tonight, Slur, it's on your head mate...
