Services Will Be Privatized

More unfond memories of the recently late Margaret Thatcher, these from filmmaker Ken Loach via the Information Clearing House. What set him off was the news that Thatcher’s funeral is expected to cost the British taxpayers more than $12 million.

“Margaret Thatcher was the most divisive and destructive Prime Minister of modern times,” [Loach] said. “Mass Unemployment, factory closures, communities destroyed — this is her legacy. She was a fighter and her enemy was the British working class.

“Her victories were aided by the politically corrupt leaders of the Labour Party and of many Trades Unions. It is because of policies begun by her that we are in this mess today…

“Remember she called Mandela a terrorist and took tea with the torturer and murderer Pinochet. How should we honor her? Let’s privatize her funeral. Put it out to competitive tender and accept the cheapest bid. It’s what she would have wanted.”

Someone would pay to provide the funeral. I mean, really, how much would they pay to get into a place where they can stomp on her plot. I'll do him one better. I'll say they should put it out to the highest bidder willing to pay for the privilege. That's what she truly would have wanted. Right?

Nothing like this happened when Reagan died. Maybe we have better manners than the Brits. More likely though we just have less balls.
