Following the news that former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died of a stroke at the age of 87, politicians, celebrities and even ordinary people have been giving their responses to her death.
Fence-sitting political columnist James Middle said, "I think that for all her achievements and failures, the one thing you can say about Margaret Thatcher is that she was a woman."
Former Conservative MP Jeffrey Futtock paid tribute to her. "I always looked up to her, as a politician and as a lady. I am ashamed to admit that on occasion I even knocked one out while thinking of her."
Retired coal miner Harry Chuckle was not so impressed. "If she had never been born, I'd still be working down t'pit. Getting coal in me fingernails and unable to celebrate her recent death. Oh, I'm glad she's gone, but you can't be glad someone's gone if they were never there. She'll be missed."
Urban blogger and political style guru Jethro Kock thought this could be the start of a new trend. "Let's be honest - most people hate Thatcher because they think it's cool to hate her. That's why I'm a fan of her, but in a ironic way. Ironic reverence for Thatcher is the new Gangnam Style."
