Baroness Thatcher was today honoured with a sombre but spectacular funeral ceremony that paid tribute to the ‘courage and perseverance’ of Britain’s greatest peacetime prime minister.
The Iron Lady’s daughter Carol wept as she said a final goodbye to her mother, and was comforted by her twin brother Sir Mark and his wife Sarah as they arrived for the private service at Mortlake Crematorium.
Earlier, under the great dome of St Paul’s Cathedral, the Queen joined dignitaries from 170 countries worldwide, friends, political foes and Lady Thatcher’s closest family members to celebrate the life of the UK’s first and only female premier.
I am glad to see she was sent off with proper decorum not marred with the antics of the haters who wanted to besmirch her good deeds. In America we have our share of haters and from the news it appears our leaders present and past showed disgrace by not attending.
