Dickson says that there should be no celebrations over Thatcher’s funeral

Alliance Chief Whip Stewart Dickson MLA has said there should not be any public parties to celebrate the death of Baroness Thatcher on Wednesday before, during or after her funeral.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “The family of Baroness Thatcher should be afforded the dignity and decency of being able to hold her funeral service without any sort of public party being held to celebrate her death.

“There is ample political space to debate her policies and legacy. However, it would be wrong and inappropriate for there to be any sort of obscene partying to mark her passing, especially on the day of her funeral.”
