Margaret Thatcher (1925–2013)

The above photo is from the Nottingham Guardian Journal of about November 1971, when 'milk snatcher' Thatcher was Education Minister and attacking student unions. I'm the guy in the foreground in the light jacket and quite big hair to the left of the guy with bigger hair and 'SAVE OUR STUDENT UNION' back turned to the photo. We really had no idea of what would soon hit us all.

The bullshit and the hypocrisy of politicians and journalists are already overwhelming me, so I just prefer to remember a few songs from her reign of hate:

Elvis Costello: 'Tramp the Dirt Down'

Pete Wylie: 'The Day That Margaret Thatcher Dies'

Morrissey: 'Margaret on the Guillotine'

Dead Kennedys: 'Kinky Sex Makes the World Go Round'

Renaud: 'Miss Maggie'

But most people seem to be remembering a song from 1939:

'Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead', from The Wizard of Oz
