Baroness Thatcher dies

Downing Street has released the names of more guests who will attend Lady Thatcher’s funeral, including US politician Newt Gingrich and former Australian Prime Minister John Howard.

Advertising magnate Lord Maurice Saatchi, internet pioneer Sir Tim Berners-Lee and singer Katherine Jenkins have also accepted invitations.

The ceremony will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral in London next Wednesday.

The Queen and Prince Philip have already confirmed they will go.

The guest list for the funeral was drawn up by Lady Thatcher’s family with the assistance of the government and the Conservative Party, with more than 2,000 invitations being dispatched on Friday.

It will be the first funeral of a British politician the Queen has attended since that of Sir Winston Churchill in 1965…

The cathedral has a capacity of 2,300 and is expected to be full on the day.

    PM Julia Gillard is no fool.
    John Howard will be in his element representing AUS, and she will not have to slink into the house of God with the likes of ex-cons Jeffrey Archer and Jonathan Aitken, and others against whom charges are yet to be laid, and adulterers Boris Johnson, John Major and Edwina Currie (won’t sit close I shouldn’t think), and Jeremy Clarkson.

    ‘By their friends shall ye know them’.

    With all the disgusting rabble threats, I do sympathise with those responsible for the security of Her Maj though.

    Well, the general rule is that parties have scandals over things about which they’re most repressed. So the Tories have sex scandals and Labour has money scandals.

    The LibDems, however, contrive to have both sorts of scandals.

    Riddle me that.

    If that general rule persists what scandals will befall the Greens? Something to do with meat-eating? Or perhaps capitalist sexist exploitation:

    Al Gore used to get attacked for all the international flying he did while pushing for action on climate change.
