Labour: Taxpayers should not be paying for funeral

Labour MP John Mann told Daybreak that "taxpayers should not be spending money on a politician's funeral". He added:

The question is how respects are paid, of course it's right that respects are paid to people who have died, and if they are national leaders then the nation should duly do so and I think that's quite appropriate.

But spending £10 million plus on a funeral for a divisive politician is wrong in my opinion wrong.
