Morrissey Blasts Margaret Thatcher as "Barbaric" in Wake of Former British P.M.'s Death

by Natalie Finn, EW

Well, what do you expect from the Brit who called the royal family "useless" and Pippa Middleton "horrendous"?

"Thatcher is remembered as The Iron Lady only because she possessed completely negative traits such as persistent stubbornness and a determined refusal to listen to others," the bellicose rocker kicked off an essay posted to the Daily Beast today in the wake of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's death at 87.

We doubt the "Margaret on the Guillotine" singer was one of Meryl Streep's favorite artists anyway...

While Thatcher may have been a polarizing figure, especially among her own country mates, there were no two ways about the longtime Conservative Party leader for Morrissey.

He wrote: "Every move she made was charged by negativity; 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."
Writing that she would "only be fondly remembered by sentimentalists," Morrissey concluded, "As a matter of recorded fact, Thatcher was a terror without an atom of humanity."

A media "obsessed with zombies and morons" is starting to sound pretty good right about now.

With Thatcher’s death, Britain remembers its ‘Iron Lady’:
