A song featuring a spoof scenario of late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher having sex at a Nazi-style rally has been re-released to coincide with the controversial former leader's death. Thatcher passed away on 8 April (13) at the age of 87 following at a stroke but her death has reignited ill feeling among some Brits about the divisive nature of her years in power. Campaigners worked to get The Wizard of Oz track Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead to second place on the U.K. singles chart as a mark of protest on Sunday (14Apr13), and now it has emerged an anti-Thatcher song first recorded when she swept to power in 1979 has been re-released. The dance track, titled I'm There!, features Thatcher impersonator Janet Brown making ecstatic moaning noises at London's Westminster Abbey during a Nazi-style rally. It featured on satirical album The Iron Lady, which has also been re-released online. Dignitaries, politicians and royalty, including Queen Elizabeth II and current British Prime Minister David Cameron, gathered at London's St Paul's Cathedral on Wednesday (17Apr13) for Thatcher's ceremonial funeral.
