Cabinet members ‘too nervous’ to tell Thatcher she’s dead

Coalition cabinet members have privately admitted that no-one has told Mrs Thatcher that she’s died. One nervous minister said, ‘I don’t think she’ll take it very well. I met her a couple of years ago and asked if she missed being prime minister and I experienced 10 minutes of ranting followed by a shout of ‘release the flying monkeys’ luckily, they turned out to be cats with cardboard wings, so I was able to escape.’

It’s understood that Michael Heseltine was later called in to slip a note into her coffin.
