“Buon Natale Maggie Thatcher! Tutti noi festeggiamo oggi perché hai un giorno in meno di ‎vita…”
Forse un po’ tardi per infierire sulla vecchia Maggie, comunque meglio di niente, vecchio John! Ma può darsi che sia ‎una canzone risalente a quei dì e allora non hai avuto il coraggio di pubblicare…‎

Michael Heseltine è un altro vecchio Tory, parlamentare dal 1966, ministro dell’ambiente e poi ‎della difesa con la Thatcher e successivamente in molti ruoli apicali con John Major.‎

La canzone fa anche parte del musical "Billy Elliott" basato sul plot dell'omonimo film del 2000 scritto da Lee Hall e diretto da Stephen Daldry...
(Bartleby)
Can you hear it in the distance
Can you sense it far away
Is it old Rudolph the reindeer
Is it Santa on his sleigh
It's heading up to Easington
It's coming down the Tyne
Oh it's bloddy Maggie Thatcher
And Michael Heseltine

So merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher
May God's love be with you
We all sing together in one breath
Merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher
We all celebrate today
‎'Cause it's one day closer to your death‎

They've come to raid your stockings
And to steal your Christmas pud
But don't be too downhearted
It's all for your own good
The economic infrastructure
Must be swept away
To make way for call centres
And lower rates of pay

So merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher
May God's love be with you
We all sing together in one breath
Merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher
We all celebrate today
‎'Cause it's one day closer to your death‎

And they've brought their fascist boot boys
And they've brought the boys in blue
And the whole Trade Union Congress
Will be at the party too
And they'll all hold hands together
All standing in a line
‎'Cause they're privatising Santa
This merry Christmas time

So merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher
May God's love be with you
We all sing together in one breath
Merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher
We all celebrate today
‎'Cause it's one day closer to your death

So merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher
May God's love be with you
We all sing together in one breath
Merry Christmas Maggie Thatcher
We all celebrate today
‎'Cause it's one day closer to your death‎

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling Heseltine
You're a tosser, you're a tosser
And you're just a Tory Swine
