The Thatcher Era, in Song

The Guardian with a nice selection of protesty songs from the Thatcher era in the UK to mark her passing today.  Not "too soon"!  I'll add two by The Clash.

Good choices, but I believe that latter-day Clash's "This Is England" most directly addresses Thatcherism:

South Atlantic wind blows
Ice from a dying creed
I see no glory
When will we be free

This is England
We can chain you to the rail
This is England
We can kill you in a jail
