Tight Security Guards Against Threats to Thatcher Funeral


Liberals are crazy. Can you imagine the outrage if conservatives would protest one of their heroes?
Check it out:

Margaret Thatcher survived an assassination attempt when she was prime minister and police are taking no chances that her critics might seek a final attack by targeting her funeral.

A major security operation has been planned for Wednesday’s ceremonial event, amid fears it could be disrupted by far-left groups, Irish republicans or individuals obsessed by the Iron Lady.

The high-profile guest list, headed by Queen Elizabeth II and set to include a host of global political figures and celebrities, has also increased the pressure on Scotland Yard.

Peaceful protests, anti-Thatcher chants and banners are also expected following a week of impromptu street celebrations to mark the death of a political leader who remains hugely divisive.
