Supporters of Baroness Thatcher are hoping to propel a rival song, the Notsensibles’ 1979 track I Love Margaret Thatcher, to number one, as a move against the anti-Thatcher anthem Ding Dong the Witch is Dead.
The anti-Thatcher anthem Ding Dong the Witch is Dead has seen a surge in popularity since Baroness Thatcher’s death and looks set to retain a top slot when the Official Chart Show airs on Sunday.
Supporters of Baroness Thatcher now are hoping to propel a rival song, the Notsensibles’ 1979 track I Love Margaret Thatcher, to number one.
A group called “I’m In Love With Margaret Thatcher for #1” is pushing for the 1979 punk track to re-enter the charts due to its pro-Thatcher lyrics: “I’m in love with Margaret Thatcher/I’m in love with Margaret Thatcher/ I’m in love … with Maggie T”
The video shows the band performing the song in 2008 at a gig at Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire.
