Rival polls on news blogs yesterday produced very different results on the question of whether Mrs. Thatcher should be honoured with a State Funeral. The dangerous, subversive lefties on the Guardian Comment Is Free site overwhelmingly voted “NO!” At a Conservative blog the vote was equally overwhelmingly “YES!”

Meanwhile Boggart Network News ran a similar poll in its newly acquired newspaper subsidiary The Slaghoughton and Grimetwistle Argos. Our poll produced the most interesting result. Readers said Yes, Mrs Thatcher should be given a state funeral and as a lasting and fitting memorial to The Iron Lady a Public Toilet should be built on her final resting place.

That would be poetic justice, the people who voted thought.
