A generation of trade unionists will dance on Thatcher’s grave

Thatcher, Thatcher, the milk snatcher

1979 – the start of the decline.

1980 – cuts, job losses, all things weighty.

1981 – Brixton riots, not much fun.

1982 – Falklands, jingoism makes me spew.

1983 – Another term of misery.

1984 – struggles and strikes keep the wolf from the door.

1985 – Liverpool fights, our hopes kept alive.

1986 – Wapping falls, we’re in a fix.

1987 – Militant still fighting, no quarter given.

1988 – British Steel sold off, not part of the state.

1989 – Can’t Pay Won’t Pay holds the line.

1990 – Mass non-payment breaks the Iron Lady.
