Since the internet is full of people debating whether or not it’s OK to celebrate Thatcher’s death (and since no one has said this yet):
See if she’d died during her time in power, or even shortly after she’d resigned, there would be significance in her death and for many, much reason to celebrate.

An old woman who was helpless, quite delirious and entirely powerless. And if you are celebrating, that is all you are celebrating.
