Can't believe someone be so cruel to do this.
Why would you celebrate the death of the Queen.

I’m really surprised anyone ever went in there for fish and chips with all that conspiracy bollocks in her windows. Shock

Revelling in the death of anyone is sick and free speech shouldn't extend to it
People shouldn't be smashing her windows but what did she expect to happen
Stupid woman

Meh, what did she expect? She wanted the publicity and that is the result. Maybe she should have stayed off social media, but as she can't even spell her own name she is obviously a bit of a bungalow.

The "lizard Liz" strongly suggests someone under the spell of qanon type conspiracy theories. So hard of thinking or vulnerable mental health.

Can you imagine the furore if a black or Asian person did what she did? It would be mayhem.

Apparently she's a well known conspiracy theorist. Disgusting behavior.

No my horror is that someone would go out of their way to celebrate the death of a 96-year-old woman.

Then stay off the internet. There are going to be loads of stories like this popping up, and the daily mail will do its absolute best to write about every single one for hate-clicks.

They can do what they like, in response to an unnecessarily cruel action.

No they can't. Criminal damage is illegal.

I didn't say anything about getting caught.

So criminal behaviour is OK if you don't get caught?

I’m not a royalist. I don’t care if the queen lives or dies. Or if we have a new king.

I however wouldn’t be celebrating it especially in my business since there are many people who love the monarchy.

To be fair a bit of sunlight on what believing in CS can do to you is not a bad thing. It's not a bit of fun. It's potentially dangerous and ruins lives.

Most of us wouldn't; but he may be a nationalist opposed to the whole concept of the United Kingdom.

I think that according to modern democratic principles, he has the right to say what he wishes, however objectionable people find it. After all, he's not advocating actual violence; or gatecrashing the actual funeral with his celebrations. If local people feel strongly about it, they can boycott his fish and chip shop.

Nomatter your thoughts on the monarchy, actively celebrating someone's death like this is sick. People shouldn't have caused criminal damage but I hope she goes out of business.

Sorry, she not he. Was mixing this up slightly with another story.

When emotions are running high its best not to poke the bear
I'd be more surprised if her shop wasn't vandalised to be honest

She sounds very strange and she's not someone whose business I'd have used in the first place, but there's no excuse for criminal damage and vandalism.

Treason! To the tower with her.

Seriously, we are living in very symbolic times. She'd best be careful not to break some antiquated law to do with celebrating the death of the Monarch. You never know what ancient laws you may be breaching or what horrifying punishments you may risk 😬.

@Hugasauras 😂 that made me laugh too!


I'd say she gets what she deserves for being so awful. Just as she should expect after her vile outburst.

So you agree with violence but not with free speech?

Bad taste on her part mind you.

As others have said you don't have to like or support the royal family to just show a little respect

And I'm not sure what they expected to achieve putting it all over social media

That said this woman is now out of business which is also sad

She’s very clearly not the full ticket and probably didn’t have the intellect to predict the extent of the backlash

Yes, agree with this.

Although I suspect that her sentiment is not as uncommon as you may think if I'm honest. But the vast majority of people who feel this way to any degree seem to have the common sense not to broadcast it.

He's got a real chip on his shoulder.

Yeah, it's no wonder the shop got battered.

In contrast, look at those lovely Scotts, paying their respects during the procession.
