I think this is pretty much spot on. I can't help but feel that most people wouldn't be thinking about buying this record were it not for the fact that such a divisive figure is being lauded as some sort of uber-patriot and national saviour. What other avenue is available for protest? No money for the public sector but we can find £8 million from the exchequer for Thatcher's (non!) state funeral? It seems like a fairly obvious attempt to wrap the conservative party up in the flag and claim Thatcher as some sort of feminist. If this wasn't happening I don't think there would be such an appetite to dance on her grave.

Then again, the prospect of doing precisely that is all that has been keeping some people going since the 1980s...
