What....what the Hell...?

Tony Blair is apparently planning the highly unusual honor of a ceremonial State Funeral for Margaret Thatcher. She's not actually sick or anything, he just thought he'd get a jump on planning.

Why the hell is a Labour Prime Minister planning a highly unusual honor for a highly divisive, far right Conservative Prime Minister who divided Britain, presided over a huge widening of the gap between the rich and poor, crushed unions (it is still called the Labour Party, right?) and attacked minorities?

I knew that Blair was considered to be on the right wing of the Labour Party - New Labour being a lot like Clinton's New Democrats - as opposed to our New Democrats... so far, but I repeat:

What the Hell?
