Street parties for Thatcher death unveiled on Facebook

Street parties for Thatcher death unveiled on FacebookStreet 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.”

All great places to be at anytime. Full of fair minded, hard working individuals. A great shame most of them were not even alive when Thatcher was PM. One thing's for sure, not much will happen when these bozos kick the bucket. Let's hope they win independence for Scotland, then let's get all our English feckless, like the phone-nickers from Brixton, that jewel of Sarf Landan, to dig a new flipping canal just south of Gretna, to keep the Thistlearses out for good.

It was Thatchers single mindedness and stubborness to listen to even her Cabinet that brought her down.She harbored a Despot Pinochet and one wonders how many Billions she has in Offshore accounts.Anyone found the logbook from HMS Conqueror, maybe its in her handbag? As for New Labour inviting her to N0.10 was like Winston inviting Lord Haw Haw!!!!

these same, supposedly politically aware, partygoers - why aren't they out on the streets protesting against the current incumbent then ? I suspect most ex-miners, pickets & left-wing students of the time are as equally as embarrassed by this behaviour as her many supporters.

Without Mrs Thatcher's long-overdue kicking of the Unions (Remember the three-day week? Or when Roy Thomson bought The Sunday Times and introduced himself to a machine-minder; "Hello, I'm the new owner of the Sunday Times". The response was "You may own it mate, but I run it!") RIP Baroness Thatcher. Without her I could never have built a £multi-million company.
