why recall parliament?

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
There was already a plan in place so that tributes could be done on Monday, but no.10 put pressure on the Speaker to recall parliament. I hope someone will do a question after to find out the costs of doing that rather than waiting. How do they justify a special recall of parliament (to do her justice I don't think MT would have approved),
which is meant to be for a national emergency. Parliament spent 45 minutes on tributes when Churchill died, 7 hours for Margaret Thatcher. Maybe it's what happens when you have a PR man as PM. I notice he tried for his 'soundbite' with 'patriot PM',
like Tony Blair and 'the people's princess'.
I think Cameron's motivation was to keep the media buzz going as it puts the tories on the front page, reminiscing about their 'good times' is better than having stories about benefit cuts and bedroom tax. Any dissention can be dismissed as tasteless.
I admire Glenda Jackson for standing up to it, good speech.
Interesting that she was described as a "conviction politician."

Should have been.

10 million of our money going to a funeral!!!! Obviously thats why the government have been cutting everything as they knew it was coming (maybe thats harsh but...)

Greatest PM ever.... NO!! Churchill got us through war with the hell of all those brave men and women like my Grandads. No MP has mentioned her lying about how 96 people that lost their lives at Hillsborough, half of them could have been saved. Perhaps we could call her a mass murderer or an accomplice. Will we give every PM a send off like that... NO! Unless its a Torie and a Torie led country at the time

When you consider the Govt. pay 53 million EVERY single day to the EU, 10 million for Thatcher's funeral security is a drop in the ocean.

Of course, I disagree with both.

UKIP anyone? Image
