Anti-Thatcher Song: BBC In Hot Seat As Song Climbs British Charts


BBC In Ding Dong Over Anti-Thatcher SongSurreal British Conservatives did not want BBC to ban the song because his words are libelous or violation of criminal law. They did not hate the song because of what you said, but because the intention of the left wing was bought to celebrate the death of Margaret Thatcher.

Opponents of the end of Margaret Thatcher as a kind of musical revenge on the former prime minister, pushing the song “Ding Dong! The Witch is dead,” the British charts posthumously protest over her polarizing policies. Friday online campaign is driven by the “Wizard of Oz” song number 1 in the UK iTunes and in the top five music chart used by the BBC for the compilation of his weekly radio countdown.

Death of controversial former UK Prime Minister on Monday, is divided into the UK, and online campaign was launched to get the beloved “Wizard of Oz” song at the top of the singles chart on Sunday to switch brands Thatcher. Unusual campaign cause headaches for BBC.

With the song near the top of the charts, the broadcaster is facing the prospect of airing the words “The Wicked Witch is dead!” on its countdown show on Sunday, just days before the Thatcher funeral scheduled for Wednesday. Some members of the Conservative Thatcher had called for publicly funded broadcaster to play a song, and others have warned that such a move would mean censoring form of dissent.

BBC caught between the alleged censorship and complaints about bad taste, split the difference, saying that it will emit only a fraction of tune – with news explains why he was there. BBC director general Tony Hall said that while the broadcaster found the campaign “distasteful and inappropriate,” he said the leaders had decided the song should be banned – but it should not be broadcast in full, either.
