How can the majority save in this recession .... have you lost the plot! altogether!

The people look after the people and am sure if you asked most of em they wouldn't mind at all.

So let the tax payer foot the bill and we`ll keep toppin up your pension and "god forbid" other care you may need later on.

Sorry if I have strayed a bit off topic here
I bet the government keeps more money from when people who have worked and paid their stamps and died before they can claim their pensions. Couldn't their burial expenses be taken out of their contributions?
Just think how much is saved by not having to pay any future pensions or benefits to the deceased
I'm sure burials could be done a lot cheaper than the traditional undertakers charge.
Apart from "bury me in a cardboard box at the bottom of the garden"
any other suggestions on a cheap funeral?

Why stop there!When they could just pile them high,then sling them in a skip.
Am sure it would only take a few months for the Government to push it through.

Yes stop Labour ideas for the next time they leave a note stating "The money has all gone." [/quote]

I wish you'd stop quoting that. Although it may have been true ,I think it was written as a joke between one outgoing minister to the new one which the new gov were quick to blow up out of proportion, getting their excuses prepared in advance for their failures.
Is not Quantitive Easing using money that they'll eventually have to find in the real world (oh maybe through selling off and privatising everything they can get away with just as Mrs Thatcher did)

Margaret Thatcher must have been one of the luckiest Prime Ministers we've had.
She came in when North Sea oil was really starting to provide loads of money and as if that was not enough for her to spend, then proceeded to privatise vital assets.
How much better off would the average person be if we still had control of our sold off utilities (if properly managed) and the vast profits now made put back into the public purse

Do you or do you not agree that privatisation is driven by profit above all else?

Answer as you may but this is getting off topic and debating politics is one of those topics that rarely changes the other persons views.
I'm sticking to the topic now

Did paupers graves once have to be in a certain section of a graveyard or cemetery or generally mixed in with ordinary burials?

Would there have been grave markers ages ago and today to name the persons interred.
I presume a grave could be opened to put another pauper in.
Just read online in one American state some were 6 coffins deep during the Great Depression.
