      Who then was Margaret Thatcher? Ask Fela Kuti. Consider the above cover of his album, “Beasts of No Nation” (1989). It featured a horrific tableau of Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, P.W. Botha, and Mobutu Sese Seko, all with bloody rat’s teeth, dwarfed by Fela’s huge head. In the corner was a quote from Botha, the inspiration for the title track: “This uprising will bring out the beast in us!”
