Is there any current or past World leader that you have or will celebrate when they die?

    None. Why should I celebrate when people die that have nothing to do with me? That sort of stuff is for people with blinkered agendas either through upbringing, or media influenced.

    That wagon of a next door neighbour who insisted on feeding the seagulls for years, on the other hand....

    I probably won't celebrate if she died, but I will look to the sky and smile.

    Guff about stuff, and stuff about guff.

    I'm being unfair blaming Biden. All he wants to do is eat ice cream. It's those pulling the strings in his name that are turning the world upside down. But this is how the democrats work - they need international unrest to fund their socialist ideals.

    You have no idea what socialism is, do you? Stick to making your millions in cryptocurrency Markus. You trigger awfully easily for a stoic.

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.

    No idea why you would celebrate the death of anyone????

    I have seen too much loss and suffering in my life, yes I might dislike people, not agree with their view but celebrate their death?

    Thats just , well sorry no words for that

    OP I would just suggest you take a long hard look at yourself if you want to celebrate the death of someone else

    I can't wait until the orange man is dead so I can tweet about it.

    What the OP says is so true ...

    Trump, Putin, Bolsonaro ... and their cronies who prop them up ... are a disgraceful bunch.

    All three are lacking in talent, are full of ignorance and compensate their lack of ability by acting the bully. All three have left the world a worse place.

    While the world would be better off without those 3 it is sadly true that their particular abilities are 10 a penny and thus can easily be replaced by 3 more clowns. Patrushev is a worse version of Putin .. Donald Jr is a clone of his father .. and Bolsonaro has a clownish son too unfortunately. That these thicko leaders can rise to such heights shows us that no one needs any ability whatsoever in politics. These clowns are proof that politics is the last chance saloon for the chancer and the crook.

    Yeah with you guys I find it hard to imagine literally celebrating the death of any world leader, no matter how odious...

    So how many Americans have you personally met and know that has forced their ideals on you since relocating to your shores?

    One, five, a hundred. Who cares? You’re looking for evidence of personal anecdotes?

    No, not really.

    Are you sure about that?

    Ukraine did not "gave up their nuclear weapons". USA pushed Russia to collect ex soviet nuclear arsenal from Ukraine when they learned that nukes were about to be sold to the highest bidder. It seems that history repeats itself to some extent as even now while they are at war about 2/3rds of weapons sent there somehow "disappear".

    Such a kind thoughtful post. Beautifully put. Right on dude.

    Trump, his supporters, brexit supporters and Cognitive dissident should all lie in their bed.

    "Whether you disagree with them or not" - what's with the downplaying and trying to look holier than thou? When Hitler and Stalin died, was that a bad thing because it's never good when a life ends, and people had a problem with them just because they "disagreed" with them?

    I know Trump isn't as bad, or Balsonaro (not that I like either of them) but Putin is carrying out mass murders.

    Well, the obvious - Trump and Putin. After that maybe Boris Jonson or Duarate (the Philipino nutjob).

    The queen (of Britain, in case anyone wants to go down THAT route) won't bother me one way or the other - she'll be replaced and life will go on. Now if the entire monarchy fell, I'd celebrate that.

    Everything I don't like is either woke or fascist - possibly both - pick one.

    Dev sent condolences to the German people when their head of state died.

    No that was a good thing and if I had of been alive then and known of their deaths I would have celebrated it.

    Live long and Prosper

    Peace and long life.

    The joy of Kissinger dying will be sadly marred by the thoughts of “Why now? Why not 80 years ago?”. 😭



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,805 ✭✭✭✭Fr Tod Umptious


    Lots of mentions of Thatcher here.

    But surprised no one posted this song.




  • Registered Users Posts: 23,632 ✭✭✭✭Larbre34


    Haughey, Paisley, Thatcher certainly got a big middle finger from me when they popped off.

    Likewise Trump will and Bolsonaro, Orban, Putin, Xi.

    The writers of the Wizard of Oz did it better. 😃

    The Stone Roses to go to number one when Lizzie The Lizard croaks it, hopefully. 🤞🏻

    It'll bother me. I'll have to deal with weeks of hagiographic horsesh*t about the old hag. It'll be worse than RTÉ when Pope John Paul II died.

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.

    Queen doesn't bother me. Apart from Andrew and that weapon Margaret, none of them do. I don't agree with monarchy but wouldn't find joy in their deaths either (nor would I be sad or able to tolerate the British media/public bullsh1t).



  • Registered Users Posts: 32,821 ✭✭✭✭Princess Consuela Bananahammock


    You can always just go offline ya know?! Hopefully it'll appen in the summer when you can go for a hike or a nice long drive.

    No chance. It'll be f*cking everywhere and the BBC I'm forced to pay for will be fully behind it.

    Your a sock puppet just spewing bullshit. No I've no time for the likes of you.

    Indicative of her mindset was not only they were mates but she’s on record as defending and backing him, almost championing him.

    you’d have to speculate that the abject lack of quality leaders impacted Labour dethroning her and her ilk….Neil Kinnock had all the personality of a half chewed golf ball.

    Well don’t challenge with me, then, if you’re going to start PMSing and crying when I reply. Whatever the fück “sock puppet” means.



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,622 ✭✭✭growleaves


    No but if the Russian or the Chinese Army invaded Ireland and carried out massacres and mass rapes I would probably be bitter enough to celebrate the death of one of their leaders. Ditto nuclear massacres.

    Otherwise I consider it a bit cracked in the head.

    I was happy when both Pinochet and PW Both died, both in 2006. There may have been others, but those two I remember. I felt sorry for Thatcher; her final years of dementia and strokes reminded me of some relatives.
