Turns out, some people are actually quite happy with Margaret Thatcher’s death. The song from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz titled 'Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead' has been climbing the music charts on iTunes and Amazon in the UK, the country which was once headed by Thatcher as the first woman Prime Minister ever.
A campaign has started on Facebook which aims towards making the song the most downloaded song this week. The Hollywood Reporter states that within the first 24 hours, the song was in the top ten downloads in iTunes and No. 2 in Amazon. The ranking suggests that the campaign is actually doing really well and there are many people out there who dislike The Iron Lady a lot.
Some of them have even planned a party. The event has also been posted on a Facebook event page.
The description reads:
“A peaceful demonstration of disapproval!
We cannot let this moment pass without letting the world know that we have not forgotten.
From stealing the milk from our children, the SUS laws, the Brixton riots, through to the Miners Strike; form the sinking of the Belgrano, to the Poll Tax Riots; 4 million unemployed, The Battle of the Bean Field and later - the CJA - We Remember!
We remember the destruction of our industries, the ruthless sell off of our services, how she filled the coffers of CEOs and the banks, unleashing a culture of greed and setting the stage for the economic strife we are experiencing now.
We will make our comment on the effect she had and the plan to spend millions of pounds on her state funeral.
Come and celebrate our liberty and freedom from tyranny! On the day that Maggie stands down, once and for all!”
