Woman Behind Parties Celebrating Thatcher's Death Is, Surprise!, a Drama Teacher

Drama queen is more like it.

Romany Blythe, 45, created a group on Facebook called The Witch is Dead followed by more than 5,000 people, calling for “demonstrations of disapproval” across the country.

A number of places on the list were locations of riots and demonstrations that took place across the country on Monday, including Bristol city centre and George Square in Glasgow.

Blythe is a drama teacher with a workshop company that visits secondary schools. She specialises in “facilitating workshops for young, excluded and potentially criminalised individuals and uses drama techniques she has developed to explore resolution of conflict and oppression,” according to the company’s website.

Writing on her own Facebook page she wrote on Monday: “So the old bag has copped it finally!! Party in the square tomorrow then!”

She then claimed she had invited more than 5,300 people to a ‘flash party’ to mark Baroness Thatcher’s passing, with the message: “Anyone else like to join us?”

She resolves conflict by partying when someone she disagreed with dies.

She’s also, surprise!, a communist. Communists and death do go together; communist rule has piled up the largest death toll of any political movement in human history, from the USSR to Vietnam to Cambodia to China.

On Facebook she appears in photographs holding a hammer and sickle flag and posing alongside former Cabinet Minister Tony Benn and left-wing writer Owen Jones.

Blythe claims that her parties are not about “gloating” over Thatcher’s death. So she’s also a liar.
