Margaret Thatcher, the only woman to ever serve as Britain’s Prime Minister, died Monday morning after suffering a stroke, the UK Independent reported. Almost as soon as the announcement was made, liberals took to Twitter to celebrate her death, Twitchy said.
“My mum is phoning all her pals and away to get champagne already hahaha,” one person tweeted, using the hashtag “#partytime.”
“Margaret thatcher (sic) is dead… Guess my dads gunna finally be able to have the champagne he’s been saving in the fridge after all these years,” another person tweeted.
“Does Thatcher death dance. Grave disco. Pints of milk on me tonight,” added another.
Cartoonist Ted Rall also weighed in.
“Goodbye, Maggie, and good riddance. Along with Reagan, Thatcher destroyed the safety net and the social contract in the West,” he wrote. In 2010, he called for the overthrow of the U.S. government through violent revolution in his book “The Anti-American Manifesto,” and discussed his ideas for revolution with MSNBC’s Dylan Thomas.
“If they bury Thatcher, it will be the busiest public urinal and dance floor in the world,” said another.
Twitchy posted 22 tweets celebrating the death of the woman known as the “Iron Lady.”
A quick search of Twitter found many more.
One person called her a “whore,” and another called her a “stuck up aristocrat.”
“No other post war Prime Minister has been so admired, or so reviled,” the Independent said.
The tweets that have been issued since the announcement would bear that out.
While many expressed hatred for the woman, many others offered condolences and best wishes.
The CBC posted a few of her more memorable quotes.
“If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman,” she said in 1965.
“Pennies don’t fall from heaven — they have to be earned here on Earth,” she said in 1979.
“Defeat? I do not recognize the meaning of the word,” she said at the start of the Falklands War in 1982.
Thatcher won three general elections for Britain’s Conservative Party, the Independent said, and “shaped UK politics for a generation.”
She was 87 at the time of her death and will receive a special ceremonial funeral, similar to those accorded to the Queen Mother and Diana, the Princess of Wales, the Independent added.
“She was a strong leader and a fierce fighter,” the Twitchy staff wrote. “She will be greatly and deeply missed.”
