Hey folks in the UK, I am curious about the well-being of the former Prime Minister, Lady Thatcher.
When I was watching the football match on last saturday, the commentater announced that the Lady was dead. But there hasn´t been any news reported yesterday´s news. I just saw the report on discussion among the present PM and the Queen whether to get Lady Thatcher a national funeral.

It is strange, isn´t it?

Maybe it is just "wishful thinking" lol

Actually she is not dead, but state funerals have to be planned well in advance so they are just discussing arrangements.

In my opinion, she should not be given the honour of a state funeral. She was too much of a controversial figure - there is still a seething hatred of her in some parts of the country.

In general, she was loved by the rich, hated by the poor!

Thanks for the info.
I think I may need to make a complain to the TV network about this false announcement. They even had this restated during the late night news! How bad their professional performance is.
