Following Margaret Thatcher’s death, protesters have propelled a song into the downloaded music charts called Ding Dong The Witch is Dead. The song from the movie The Wizard of Oz has caused a storm of protest across Britain; more so in the British press, to the point that the BBC decided at first to ban the song being played!
The BBC says the campaign promoting the song is “distasteful”. They issued a statement: “The BBC finds this campaign distasteful but does not believe the record should be banned. On Sunday, the Radio 1 chart show will contain a news item explaining why it is in the charts. During this a short clip will be played, as it has been in some of our news programmes.”
