How do you feel about the celebrations going on over Margaret Thatcher's passing?


What does it say about society when parties are thrown in the street to celebrate the demise of a political icon? Is it acceptable regardless of political leanings? Please state why or why not.

    Thanks for the response. I will never get it, but it seems many don't find the behavior disrespectful at all, or so they say. I suspect if it were a leftist leader, it would be a different story. I find it shameful from anyone.

    It really is. I could not get over how happy those people looked. A woman just died and they're ready to get their party on. I suspect many of them have zero political knowledge and just used her passing as an excuse to behave like idiots.

    Too true, especially at the end. Society is getting anything but civil. Thanks for responding.

    I hope you're right about the history part. I worry one of those fools will be writing it soon. Thank you for a thoughtful response.
