Singer Morrissey has taken to The Daily Beast to pretty much breakdance on the recently deceased former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher‘s grave, writing a fairly scathing piece of how bad she was. You can read the full write-up (or write-down?) here…below is an excerpt:

Thatcher will only be fondly remembered by sentimentalists who did not suffer under her leadership, but the majority of British working people have forgotten her already, and the people of Argentina will be celebrating her death. As a matter of recorded fact, Thatcher was a terror without an atom of humanity.

As far as the rest of the UK, well….just take a look:

Taken from Mad News UK:

Yesterday The Daily Telegraph closed their online comment section because of the abuse aimed at Thatcher and a campaign to get the classic song from the Wizard Of Oz, ‘The Wicked Witch Is Dead’, to number 1 in the UK chart has been set up by a group of individuals on Facebook.

The Independent reports ‘that within 24 hours of the former Prime Minister’s death, the song had risen to number 9 in the iTunes best-sellers chart. It reached number 2 on the Amazon singles download chart. Sales figures for Monday, released by the Official Charts Company, showed that the song had already made it to number 54 in the rundown used by Radio 1. Also A song specifically written to attack Lady Thatcher, “Tramp The Dirt Down” by Elvis Costello, also rose to 79 on the iTunes chart.’
