Sorry US readers, but this is a very UK post
Erm, ten million quid for a funeral. that’s just a bit excessive. Of course there was the right wing UK press saying that the price was justified on security grounds. 4000 members of Her Majesty’s Constabulary to protect Newt Gingrich and Jeremy Clarkson? – Though in UK motoring terms, the “death wish list” against the latter is possibly grater than the former.
A priavte funeral and a memorial service would have been fine
More Mrs T thoughts tomorrow.
