Street parties for Thatcher death unveiled on Facebook

Several ‘parties’ are being unveiled on Facebook, by people who are looking to celebrate the death of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Over 500 people have said they are going to a party in Brixton’s Windrush Square, while over 1,000 have said that they will attend an event taking place in Glasgow’s George Square.

Glasgow City Council has spoken out about the event: “Regardless of whether or not it's appropriate to have a party to celebrate someone dying, this event was organised without involvement or consent from the council and we have safety concerns for anyone attending.

“Organisers of legitimate events must get permission to use the square. They must also satisfy the council that they will take safety precautions such as providing first aiders, sufficient public toilets and stewards, as well as obtaining public liability insurance.

“We urge people to stay away.”
