Thatcher's political and punk rock legacy

Margaret Thatcher's policies on deregulation, government spending and union power were hard for England to swallow. But the Iron Lady dragged down inflation, shaped a market-oriented era and inspired some great rock songs.

It is doubtful that any other political leader of the 20th century had, in her lifetime, as many songs written about her death as Margaret Thatcher.

The disaffected off-casts of her free market reforms found their voice in the British punk movements lyrics.
