A party in George Square immediately following the death of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has been replayed on news outlets around the world. Critics of the those who attended the 'Thatcher Death Party' claim that the celebrations were inappropriate, bringing shame on the city. In defence of the those who celebrated the death of the 'Iron Lady', other commentators highlight the massive, ongoing damage inflicted on the people of Glasgow as a direct result of the former PM's policies, which many claim directly targeted the working classes.
