Its a topic that has come up quite frequently over the last few days with the death of Margaret Thatcher.
She was a divisive character and has loomed large on not just the national but international stage. However, there is a section of people who will never forgive her for some of her words and actions.
Since she died there has been a large outpouring of respect for her, even through disagreement of viewpoint, but there has been a small minority of people celebrating away.
So, the question is - how soon is too soon? Should people be allowed to cheer the death of people in the public eye who have had an impact on the world, or should there still be a period of time to allow family and friends to grieve before such events should start?
