Munchkins of the world unite
on 12 April 2013
As someone who lived through the Thatcher years, and saw the promotion of the worst side of human nature at her hands I wasn't saddened to read of her death and like a lot of people I think celebrating someone's death is tasteless. I bought this record to show to the government that in these times of austerity in which 'we'll all in it together' we, the tax payer, should NOT be paying out millions on a funeral, when that money could be better spent on the living in the form of healthcare.
The Thatcher family has plenty of money to pay for a funeral so why should they be getting handouts (benefits) from the state when this government is determined to cut back on what it is spending. This is the ultimate insult to the country from a government that is totally out of touch with the current situation of the majority of the population: in the week that the poorest have a bedroom tax imposed on them, cutbacks to benefits for the poorest and most vulnerable in this country, the Tory government feels it right to spend OUR money on what is a glorified family funeral. This is a state handout for the funeral of someone who when she was PM didn't believe in state handouts! As Thatcher once said, 'there is no society, just the family' ... so why should society pay OUR taxes for your family funeral.
The song itself: It's upbeat, it's lively, it's from one of my favourite films and I'd love to hear it on Radio 1 but I doubt the BBC will listen to what the populace want and will continue to bow to it's political masters wishes, but that's "democracy" for you.
Play it loud and rejoice. Don't be caught up with the hatred expressed for the populace by the "nasty party" ... the witch is dead, so dance like the munchkins.
