Conservative MP Ken Clarke hit out at the "childish" protests against Margaret Thatcher today, dismissing the protesters as "adolescents making silly points."
He also defended her ceremonial funeral, telling Sky News:
Being as objective as I can be, she was the first woman prime minister, she was the longest-serving prime minister in modern times... and she changed the country on a scale which no other prime minister came near. She was a huge national personality so I think it was entirely suitable.
As were some of thesupposed celebrations of her death - they were rather tasteless, adolescentsmaking silly points.
