Corporation will not play the song Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead in full on Radio 1...
In a fudge likely to satisfy Lady Thatcher's supporters but criticised by anti-censorship campaigners, the BBC will play a five-second clip of the track which is being pushed up the charts by anti-Thatcher protesters in a news item during the Radio 1 Chart Show on Sunday.
The BBC has taken the unprecedented step of deciding to insert a news story into the show to explain to younger viewers [sic!]why a track from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz has suddenly leapt into the top 10. Radio 1 has a target audience of 16- to 24-year-olds, none of whom will recall Thatcher's premiership first hand....

Viewers? Oh, but its from the Grauniad...enough said.
They fired Winston Churchill after he workd so hard for them in WW2they dislike Ms. Thatcher, and they are going Islamic more every day.
Sometimes the Brits don’t make a helluva lot of sense.
I think the BBC is laying in absolute fear of upsetting enough Brits....that budget cuts would be demanded and the TV tax amended. This segment of anti-Thatcher folks....likely adds to barely twenty percent of the public. A lot of the union folks left over from the 1970s....remember still today what happened to them, and how they were shifted into private ownership hands. But these are the people who would at least respect the passing of someone and not act like a child.
Nathan Bedford's third Maxim of politics: failed socialism (only) begets more socialism.
International Progressive icon Hugo Chavez passes away, and Conservative opponents do not celebrate or loot.
International Conservative icon Margaret Thatcher passes away, and Liberal opponents loot and riot in celebration.
This sheds light on the personalities and character of the people drawn to each philosophy.
Ding, Dong the Left is dead,
The wicked Left,
The evil Left,
Ding, Dong the wicked Left is dead.
Anyone have talent?
1—Labour won in 1945 because they promised a new Jerusalem after the war with new housing, the NHS, higher wages. The Tories were seen as the party who got us into the war by their weakness.
The British voters still respected/loved Churchill, but not his party.
2—No, we arent going more Muslim. Do you know how sick I am of saying this isnt true?.
3—Many British disliked and dislike Thatcher, but many of us admired her.
What Prime Minister has ever been universally loved, or even remembered.
I think they are going to be as nasty towards Blair when he passes.
I damn well hope so.
I am in the process of writing the lyrics, music is ready to go. The proceeds of the song will go to The Royal Chelsea Hospital ;-p
Please post when ready!
