Oh dear. Looks like more bad news for fans of Margaret Thatcher.

According to a ComRes poll for the Independent on Sunday and Sunday Mirror, 60% of the public say Thatcher’s funeral should not be funded by the taxpayer.

And not only that, but according to this poll, it seems we don’t think she was our greatest Prime Minister after all: (41% disagree / 33% agree)

Also, most of us think she was the the most divisive prime minister we’ve had (59%) – with a paltry 18% disagreeing.

Oh – and last but not least – more of us think we receive a worse level of service from gas, electricity and telephone companies after Thatcher privatised them than when they were nationalised (38% / 25%)

So – despite the spin – it’s starting to look like we British are not so enthusiastic about Thatcher and her legacy after all.
