Man Arrested For Locking Wife In Shed For Singing ‘Ding-Dong The Witch Is Dead’ When His Mother Died
TO Cornwall, where Andrew Salmon reportedly locked his wife in a garden shed when she began singing “Ding dong, the witch is dead” following death of his mother.
Questioned later, Salmon explained his actions by saying that his wife never liked his mother and was very unsympathetic when she died.
He told magistrates she kept saying “ding dong, the witch is dead”.
“I was provoked but I am sorry for what I have done to my wife and regret everything I did.” he said. “I was pushed towards it although I should not have done it.”
Margaret Thatcher’s son Mark Thatcher was unavailable for comment. And stories that after his mother death he hired a huge silo are unfounded…

Opponents of the late Margaret Thatcher are taking a kind of musical revenge on the former prime minister, pushing the song “Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead” up the British charts in a posthumous protest over her polarizing policies. By Friday, April 12, 2013, the online campaign had propelled the “Wizard of Oz” song to No. 1 on British iTunes and into the top five of the music chart used by the BBC to compile its weekly radio countdown.
