I think people will enjoy the chance to pay their respects. It will be quite an emotional and powerful day for most people who work in finance. I have to work that day, but my office near St Paul’s should have a good view.”

I hope she receives the respect she deserves for what she did for the country. I will probably go along to St Paul’s if I can, but there will always be a maverick bunch of people willing to protest. If it does cause problems, that would be disappointing.”

No, I won’t be going. She was a divisive figure, but she changed landscapes and dramatically defined a political age and should be respected for that. She has a statue in parliament, which is deserved, but does that mean she should get a state funeral? No.”
