While the rest of the world mourns the passing of the late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Morrissey to offer a counterweight.

You may remember that Morrissey has long expressed his distaste for the politician known as the Iron Lady,most notably in the song “Margaret on the Guillotine” off his solo debut, “Viva Hate.”

In an open letter, published by the Daily Beast, Morrissey rips into the former Prime Minister, who died on Monday (08Apr13).  The rock star insists, “Every move she [Margaret Thacher] made was charged by negativity!”

The 80s iconic rock star, Morrissey writes:

“She destroyed the British manufacturing industry, she hated the miners, she hated the arts, she hated the Irish Freedom Fighters and allowed them to die, she hated the English poor and did nothing at all to help them, she hated Greenpeace and environmental protectionists, she was the only European political leader who opposed a ban on the Ivory Trade, she had no wit and no warmth and even her own Cabinet booted her out.”

He adds:

“She hated feminists even though it was largely due to the progression of the women’s movement that the British people allowed themselves to accept that a Prime Minister could actually be female. But because of Thatcher, there will never again be another woman in power in British politics, and rather than opening that particular door for other women, she closed it.”

“Thatcher will only be fondly remembered by sentimentalists who did not suffer under her leadership, but the majority of British working people have forgotten her already, and the people of Argentina will be celebrating her death. As a matter of recorded fact, Thatcher was a terror without an atom of humanity.”
