Maggie: She’s into Rigoletto, she’s into Zubin Mehta

Mikel Toms has drawn our attention to a long-forgotten 1981/2 BBC drama series called ‘Maggie’. Mrs Thatcher was prime minister at the time.

Here’s the refrain:

She’s into Rigoletto,
she’s into Zubin Mehta.
She knows that Canaletto,
he’s no painter decorator.
With due (If you) consideration, to fund her education,
She’s rebel of sorts, she’s a rebel of course,
She’s a rebel on a level
(there’s an oh and then a me and then oh —)

Watch for yourselves:
