    Looking to get an appraisal on this great, if a little grim, domain name which has been registered for 2 years. As you know, when you search google it removes small terms like is, and, when etc. That makes this domain name the top choice for the niche. There isn't a better domain for it.

    As you know, Margaret Thatcher is a very famous politician (her name gets 201,000 monthly searches according to google keyword tool) who is getting on a bit and has recently had a couple of hospital trips etc.

    I know the nature of the domain is rather tasteless, but this is a premium domain name and when the inevitable happens they generate a tonne of cash. I remember a member here at BHW said he was the owner of a micheal jackson death related domain claimed to have made 4k in the day or so following his death. That story went on for weeks too, so guess a fair bit of dollar was made.

    I'd like to sit on this little nest egg but I could do with the cash sadly, assuming the price isn't riduculus. I think there is fantastic opportunity to it.

    Could anybody give me an appraisal on the domain were it to be sold now?

    If used in a tasteful way, mourning the death of Margaret Thatcher, it may be worth a lot.

    Make an app that lets you choose her method of execution, then sell it in Scotland. You'll be quids in.

    I honestly wouldnt waste your time. Mrs Thatcher cannot be compared to Michael jackson in anyway. Michale Jackson had millions of fans who wanted even the tiniest scrap of info is he was alive or had died. Mrs Thatcher is basically only lnown to us in the UK and even those around the world that knew her (ie US) wont be that interested. It will make a few minutes on the news and be gone the next day. Did anyone make any money out of Ronald Reagans death?. I doubt it. Domains like this only work for mega star celebs with a huge fan following and products related to that person like tshirts, dolls, cd's videos etc. Cant see a big calling for Margaret Thatcher tshirts somehow.

    I like the idea of a game! If you could create a game where you fuck her corpse up the arse while stabbing her eyes out with a knitting needle then I'd happily share it with friends and family on Facebook. It would instantly go viral!

    Just thought of a great 2nd level!

    You could get the unemployed miners to dig up Denis Thatcher and kick his corpse around like an empty tracksuit. Has to be some sort of irony in there somewhere!

    Plenty of people like her. You don't like her. Takes a lot of projection and delusion to extrapolate that to *everybody*.

    Heck, while you're at it, why not go with LindseyLohanDead.com?

    At the rate she is going, that won't be too far in the future, either.

    Only way you could fully monetize it was to dropship margaret thatcher merchanidise. Like mugs, tshirts, videos, dvds etc. Besides that your not going to have much luck
