Following Meryl Streep's Oscar win for her performance in The Iron Lady, debate has been renewed in Britain over the legacy of Margaret Thatcher. In particular debate has been centred around what should happen in the event of her death, which is inevitable, provided she is not, as some suspect, a member of the undead.
"Of course she should get a State Funeral!" thundered Alexander Baxter, a moustachioed military enthusiast who likes to hint that he served in the military but generally backs down when confronted on the matter. "She is our greatest warrior queen since Elizabeth the first, or possibly even Boudecca! Her brilliant leadership - telling the men under her to go over there and fight those damn Argies - brilliant! Absolutely brilliant, I say!"
Others are not so positive, citing the wave of privatisation that occured under her government, and the way the miner's strike divided the nation under her rule.
Overall, most surveys seem to be divided roughly fifty -fifty between those who want her to have a state funeral, and those who just want her to stop living. However, there have been several minority responses getting a few percentage points in polls, amongst them 'can we bury her alive?'
The Iron Lady, a biography of Thatcher's life, is a comedy which hilariously features an elderly Lady Thatcher, suffering from the dementia she so clearly deserves, wandering around her house unsure of where she is. The movie was described by The Guardian as "the feelgood movie of the year".
