While Margaret Thatcher is seen in high regard by most, there are some who did not like the former British Prime Minister. 

A Facebook campaign has driven Judy garland’s 1939 song from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ up the UK charts. ‘Ding Dog the Witch is Dead’ is currentyl at number 27 on the UK iTunes chart.

This isn’t the first time that a Facebook campaign has seen a song dominate the UK charts. Rage Against the Machine’s ‘Killing in the Name’ became the number one Christmas song in the UK in 2009 thanks to one of these campaigns, that have swayed British charts for the past five years.
