There seemed to be an accidental extra tribute to Margaret Thatcher from the Beeb in their coverage of her funeral today.
Even as the queen of lay-offs was being carried up the aisle of St Paul’s Cathedral today, the live news feed on the BBC’s footage showed the latest unemployment figures, which feature a big rise.

Emphasising Thatcher’s legacy — unemployment peaked at over five million in her time — the bad news continued to scroll even as Thatcher’s acolyte Diddy David Cameron did his reading thing, repeating again and again that joblessness was on the way up.
