    This is definitely a matter that is hotly debated at the moment I think. Magaret Thatcher indeed was a great leader, a great politician and an inspiration to many women all over the world including myself, however, is it just too much to organise such a funeral to only a former Prime Minister. Surely all leaders in the UK will have to consider about her constributions to this country in order to make such decision otherwise it could upset many people, not just the people who totally disagree with her policies, over even hate her but also other people who have been Prime Minister, who have also contributed a great deal in building this country too.
