Thatcher launched protests that still simmer

I didn't live in BRITAIN during her 11-year tenure as prime minister, so I have no real right to discuss her legacy, but the musicians I enjoyed certainly had strong feelings about MARGARET THATCHER.
The "Iron Lady" who died today launched hundreds if not thousands of modern protest songs.
The anger continues to resonate, based upon the mood of my TWITTER feed this morning when the news broke. There were plenty of people still incensed by Thatcher.
BILLY BRAGG was one of the loudest voices raised against Thatcher during her reign.
Today he posted on FACEBOOK:
"This is not a time for celebration. The death of Margaret Thatcher is nothing more than a salient reminder of how Britain got into the mess that we are in today."
