Margaret Thatcher, Britain's first female PM, dead at 87

Quote:
London (CNN) -- Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, a towering figure in post-war British and world politics, and the first woman to become British prime minister, has died at the age of 87, her spokeswoman said Monday.

Mix record, was the Iron lady but was a good friend to apartheid South Africa.

I know she was controversial, but I always admired her. RIP.

^^^ Aye
See this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7X1eyS6DAs0
The whole thing is long, but if you want the main sketch, go to 7:45.

Brilliant and hilarious.
'Square go.'

Let me take a wild guess and say they were the same type to comment how classless it was that some people had celebrated Bin Laden's death...

South Africans definately don't have any love for her, except for those who supported apartheid.

And I'm sure she wasn't a favorite of the Argentinians either but I'm honestly surprised of hearing about these parties going on in the UK celebrating her death. Maybe the political discourse we have here in America isn't really all that bad after all, lol.

Celebrations were held across Britain at news of her passing with more expected during her funeral next week.

Six police officers were injured as hundreds of revellers turned violent in Bristol on Monday.

In Brixton, a charity shop window was smashed by crowds holding banners saying ‘The bitch is dead’ and ‘Rejoice, rejoice, Thatcher is dead’.

In George Square, Glasgow – the scene of the 1989 poll tax protests – 300 people toasted her death with champagne and party poppers.
