Plus they're a ska band and it's not 1997.

Pretty tame compared to some Thatcher references in the music industry during the 80's.. (Obvs, her eyes were blacked out in the UK versions of the single).

And this was on a hit album



Meanwhile Eminem got a Secret Service visit for rapping "I don't rap for dead presidents, I rap to see presidents dead" on a b-side. I guess the JFK assassination and the assassination attempt on Reagan makes America more leery.

I can imagine at the time quite a few coal miners picking that single up, just for the artwork..

This is one of the most sensational political upsets of our time. Theresa May – a wretched dishonest excuse of a politician, don’t pity her – launched a general election with the sole purpose of crushing opposition in Britain. It was brazen opportunism, a naked power grab: privately, I’m told, her team wanted the precious “bauble” of going down in history as the gravediggers of the British Labour party. Instead, she has destroyed herself. She is toast.


That's from the Guardian. If you wrote that about Hillary Clinton over here (and you really could swap out names) you'd be fired.
