Protesters turn their backs on Thatcher funeral procession

Protesters included Patricia Welsh, a 69-year-old retired youth worker, who said: “I am absolutely furious that Prime Minister David Cameron has decided to spend £10million on a funeral when normal people are having to face cutbacks, libraries are closing and the NHS is being cut - for the funeral of a Conservative woman.

“Like anyone else she deserves a decent funeral, but not at the expense of the taxpayer.”

Dave Winslow, 22, an anthropology student from Durham, added: “The message is that spending £10million on such a divisive figure in times of austerity, especially when austerity is being imposed on the poor, is wrong, especially when harm is being caused to the disabled and the NHS. 

“I think quite a few disabled people have died since being pushed into jobs they’re unsuitable for.

“I have a friend up north who skips meals in order to feed a child.

“The working class are really being crushed by the rising costs of living and welfare cuts.

“The Government wants to glorify this. It is a massive propaganda campaign to idolise Margaret Thatcher.”
