What to do when Thatcher shuffles off the mortal coil.

As many folk will have heard Class War have called for a party in trafalgar square when the old crone finally carks it. What do folk think we should do up here? I've been talking to a few people recently about having a party on the same day as the London one, but where? Personally I like the idea of George square but Glasgow Green has also been mentioned. Both sites have historical significance. So what do you lot think?
Obviously I'm just thinking of Glasgow as it's where I live but it would be cracking if we could have parties happening simultaneously all over the country.

I think it will be a riot. (Not good)

I think if folks are really serious about it, and it's just a symbolic event, as well, mind, then they should network it at the Durham Miners Gala (last year 60,000 people attended that). As it stands although funny as an idea it's quite wanky. I think it could however be lined into a national struggle to re-open deep mines. That'd be something I'd be quite keen to support, and given the recent bourgeois rumblings following energy crises for the government to do so and the fact that the UK, increasingly like the rest of Europe, relies on coal from China and oil and gas from Russia, I actually think, it is becoming a winnable demand.

I was kind thinking of having a party sad
It is going to be symbolic aye, symobolising the fact that many, many of us despise the old cow and will be happy when she's gone. When she does shuffle off then the media is going to be full of sycophantic shit about what a great leader she was, a wonderful stateswoman and all that rubbish. So having a big fuck off party as an antidote to that would be great idea I reckon. I think a lot of folk are going to be celebrating all over the country when she goes anyway so just putting a call out for people to meet up on Glasgow Green on the saturday after she dies couldn't do any harm. I don't know what may happen at the London party , what with the met and everything, but I doubt it would kick off up here.
