I didn't say "Thatcherism was all bad". But I do think she was responsible for promoting and stimulating a 'Gordon Gekko' mindset (i.e. "Greed is good") in the UK.

However, I wasn't aiming to make a political point. The message that I hoped would come across, is that: ONE MILLION ETHIOPIANS DIED OF STARVATION in a decade when greed, self and excess was at it's height - and Live Aid was a stand-out moment, (of real good) in that decade.
