A man convicted for his part in an attempted coup in Equatorial Guinea has managed to get a lavish funeral for his mother on the Tax Payer.
Mark Thatcher who backed the 2004 coup led by close friend Simon Mann has managed to get a £15m ceremonial funeral for his mother paid for by tax payers in what is thought to be the worst case yet of scrounger society. Thatcher who has an estimated fortune of £50m in tax havens will not pay a penny towards the cost of the event.
Close friend Prime Minister David Cameron has back tracked on some of his previous statements on scroungers saying. "Look some people deserve to get cash from the state even if they have never put a penny in. It is people from scummy areas we object to. Sir Mark's late mother spent her live making those people know their place and we have to keep that going."
The Mayor of London who's budget will be depleted has released a statement saying that he supports the move. "We'll get the money back by moving people out council houses and selling them off. Double win for us as we can make sure we stack the houses with Conservative voters."
Lots of people are expected to protest the funeral in rage over scroungers.
