60% oppose Thatcher's funeral costs being paid from public funds
A ComRes survey for the Independent on Sunday and the Sunday Mirror found that 60% were opposed to Margaret Thatcher's funeral costs being paid for out of public funds.
Only 25% were in favour. Only one in three agreed with the nonsense that Thatcher was 'Britain's greatest peacetime prime minister' while 41% disagreed. 59% said she was the most divisive prime minister they could remember.
