Next Wednesday suits me. Make it a Twofer.

    Would that be after his conviction at his war crimes tribunal? OMG that creature, its a wonder I don't inplode when people dare mention his name in my presence second only to the thing holding office in the WH or maybe bush. Whereas Maggie was loved and mainly loathed, Tony was just loathed. WMD my left one.

    so yes he can have one after he submits to the tribunal and since he wont, he's not getting one ever, in fact the only other state funerals likely will be The Queen in a few decades because she seems to be outliving most duracell bunny rabbits.

    No - recent polls show majority support for Blair and Brown to be embalmed and permanently displayed in Madame Tussaud's.

    It's hoped the new Rogues Gallery will include images of Col Gaddafi, President Mugabe and - since he's so keen to stay here - Abu Qatada (dead or alive).

S. Say what you will approximately Saddam Hussein yet owing to this invasion, hundreds of hundreds of persons have lost their lives in view that and the country has to bear bombings and deaths on a regular foundation the only human beings to have benefited are the likes of the U. S. treasury as oil from Iraq maintains to be bought in US funds quite of Euros, which Saddam grew to become into making plans to alter to, the form industries who're profiting on the cost of the Iraqi human beings to rebuild all the wear and tear that grew to become into executed via US and uk troops, the hands manufacturers and investors who have been paid for all the weapons bought, etc

    Mrs Thatcher is having a military funeral - because she won three elections - which is appropriate bearing in mind her jingoism.

    Tony Blair also won three elections and was a bit more classy than her so I think a state funeral would be more appropriate.

    It would be quite nice if they were to chuck Bernard Ingham in the box to keep her company.

    Preceded by a war-crimes trial and an execution by hanging in Landsberg prison. ( For the sake of tradition. The Americans closed the war crimes facility in 1958, so this may not be practical).

  • Lol I love a good BOGOF deal. Poor Blair, hated by the Left for being too right wing and hated by the right for being too left wing. He will never live down Iraq.
