Costello sings anti-Thatcher song

A protest song written in celebration of the death of Margaret Thatcher was performed at Glastonbury Festival, just months after her demise.

Elvis Costello, playing an afternoon set on the main Pyramid Stage, introduced Tramp The Dirt Down by saying at the time he wrote it, many years ago, he thought everyone would have jetpacks by 2013.

The controversial song was broadcast as part of the BBC's coverage of the festival.

Costello told the audience that, while he would not wish dementia on anyone, "the things she did to this country are still being done today".

He added: "It's not about burying someone underground, it's about burying an idea in the ground."

Costello, whose fans watching onstage included Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys and Mary McCartney, also performed hits including Oliver's Army in his hour-long set.
