Bought this song to leave a message about Margaret Thatcher being dead, Morrissey does not need a comment, he is what he is, loyal to his words, politicaly aware and with a heart, unlike Thatcher who I personally think was seriously mentally ill and was suppose to be in an istitution not in a charge of the country, this song might be a bit strong for some people, but its just a language of symbolism and there are no limits;I just want to write down few things to support this song: she destroyed what was good about the UK, devided people, made them selfish with her "what society..theres just individual and family" believe, she privatized what was possible and therefore destroyed production, outsorced jobs, there are untill these days whole cities were generations live on benefits due to her closing down local production, she destroyed education, she sold arms to Saddam Hussein, sent the British SAS to train Khmer Rouge guerillas in Thailand, she supported the apartheid regime in South Africa, proclaiming to Commonwealth leaders in 1987 that "the African National Congress is a typical terrorist organisation" yes she called Nelson Mandela a terrorist, she developed an obsession with Augusto Pinochet, the homicidal Chilean tyrant who had sought asylum in Britain, "it is you who brought democracy to Chile," she publicly said, her son Mark traipsed around the world invoking her name to enrich himself on dodgy arms deals and is not allowed to come back to the UK, she "freed" the banks by her deregulation of 1986, british banking turned itself into the most rich and corrupted monster paving the way for the crash of 2007, the big five banks were forced to pay around £11 billion in fines and penalties recently, only about 40 per cent of their huge profits, but they continue to enjoy bonuses and money that would feed the world 3 times, while the UK is in debt, and will always be because there is no other decent income than the tax, mainly from the hardworking people (excuse me meaning, the weak and silly because rich people have their funds and charities and manage legaly to pay nothing), and while the value of money is sinking like Titanic, and more money is printed again and again, no jobs to cover the huge mass of unemployed people all over the county first created by her, more and more anger and hunger with the Tori in the government, more and more rich people who cant possibly ever spend all their money enjoying their life of luxury despicing the weak and poor... We saw the first London Riots, but there will be more, and maybe, one day, the people of United Kingdom will go into the streets like in France some more then 200 years ago or in Russia some 100 years ago and take things in their hands, because they will be hungry, and thats gonna be because of her, mentally ill and ambitious Margaret Thatcher and her source Milton Freedman with his "free market" utopia that is here just to make the rich more rich and the poor more poor. Well done!!!
