    Rubbish, Mags would have approved, she believed in speaking your mind, not mincing words for the sake of "society's" approval. And she revelled in opposition: it plainly made her all the more convinced she was doing something right.

    It's unnerving how readily we make light of the death of one of our own PMs.

    Seeing as how Justin Bieber, Nikki Minaj and their like can earn #1 these days, my surprise at this song being in the charts is non-existent.

    Its like a new hipster trend, they need to die.

    Just something I saw in an article on the Guardian website

    Many noted how much she enjoyed arguing with those of opposing views. Tony Benn, former Labour cabinet minister, remembered her at the funeral of Labour MP Eric Heffer:

    I was asked to make a speech and, as I was waiting, there was someone behind me coughing. It was Mrs Thatcher, and at the end I thanked her for coming and she burst into tears. She had come out of respect for someone whose opinions she disagreed with.
    It's maybe the last thing she'll leave us with, that she was better than those celebrating her death.

    EDIT: to clarify, it is for the context. No matter what you thought of her policies, one should never rejoice in the death of the most influential prime minister since Churchill, or any human being for that matter. Neg away, but that's the truth. Her legacy will live forever, and she will be remembered long after you are all in your cold, cynical, pop-leftie graves. RIP Baronness Thatcher.

    There is political opposition and there is downright vulgarity.

    What's wrong with that song? Regardless of it being popular because Thatcher died it deserves to shine. Good song

    I do truly worry for Britain's future if we, as a nation, are so quick to rejoice over a death. Regardless of what you think of her policies one should not rejoice in her death. RIP Baroness Thatcher.

    Churchill defeated Attlee in the 1951 election and was PM for another four years so I suppose it depends where you count from.

    I think it is sad people are celebrating the death of an elderly women. Despite what your political allignment is someone has died and her children have lost their mother. She hasn't been in power for over two decades so it isn't even as it would drastically make any policy changes.

    I believe the fact people have nothing better to do than to throw parties and celebrate an old person dying says more about them than her.

    I can remember people on here making fun of a young person who killed herself and from what I can remember she never got the same respect thatcher got. Hypocrites. If George Galloway died tomorrow you'd all be laughing.

    This is all you can expect from the left. They've shown themselves in their true colours; they're a vile bunch.
