As you all probably know, Margaret Thatcher's funeral is today, but what do you make of the £10m publicly funded money that has been used to pay for this?

Obviously security is on top measure today, but £10m?!!! Even if I had the dream funeral for a loved one, I wouldn't be able to tot up the total to that!!

I didn't, no. I'll have a search now! Must admit, I've been bogged down with stuff to do since I got back from work, so I only caught a glimpse of the funeral on the news.

We have someone at work who was listening to it on the radio - not my cup of tea if I'm honest.

That is a ridiculous amount of money! I know security is extremely important but £10,000,000 ???

Ridiculous, the money could've been used for much better reasons.
My thoughts exactly.

It was an amazing service, but let's be honest, it's public money. Therefore an easy £2m of it would be for people who didn't even respect Thatcher. Surely it's unfair on them?
