In case you didn’t notice, Margaret Thatcher’s funeral took place today. Last Saturday, an estimated 3,000 joined a party in Trafalgar Square, called many years ago by Class War, to show their disdain for the Iron Lady.

In a special episode of The Circled A, Donnacha DeLong introduces a mix of voices recorded at the party with anti-Thatcher songs by Elvis Costello, Chumbawamba and the beautiful Coal not Dole by Norma Waterson.

Listen now:
