    did you say that when Saddam was hung Not comparing the two but merely making the point that sometimes the death of a person is something to celebrate
    I don't remember my exact words obviously, but I definitely did not say "hurray".
    Some goes for OBL.
    I can't say I was sad to see them go but I didn't celebrate.

    I think there is something very wrong with people who celebrate the deaths of others.

    I understand what you're saying but she'll have to die some day, even if today is not that day.
    That be true but comments from people who wish to celebrate her death are really pathetic and make me disgusted with elements of the left.

    I really do wonder if people like that have any morals at all.

    Of course, i sincerely hope that any member of the Conservative Party would have enough of a brain not to be so simple.

    I deplore Gordon Brown, he is an idiotic backstabber and for that reason i have a cold hatred for him which is understandable but anybody who would go to the extent of celebrating his death really is a vile human being.

    Pos repped.

    I will never be happy a fellow human has died, no matter what evil they may have done, they don't deserve it.

    Some pretty disgusting comments in here, especially on the first page. I utterly despise Owen Jones but I would not celebrate if he were to die from a horrid illness.

    Grow the **** up, some of you.

    Well to start with she destroyed the industrial base of the British economy, ran down the health service and schools to such a degree that it took huge investments from the Blair government to start making any kind of impact, literally wasted the tax revenue from North Sea Oil on tax breaks and breaking the Coal Miners.

    The list really is rather exhaustive. Other than to tighten union laws there is not one thing that she did that was in any way positive. Even the Falklands War was caused by thoughtless defence cuts at the time...

    Celebrity hairdresser Vidal Sassoon has died. Obviously he and Margaret Thatcher are easy to confuse, at least to Twitter users.
