Mick Jagger: Closet Tory

It turns out Mick Jagger is (gasp) a bit of a conservative:

Back in his 1960s heyday, he was idolised as the ultimate hellraising rock and roll rebel.

But Sir Mick Jagger’s anti-establishment credentials have been dealt something of a blow after the singer confessed he enjoyed meetings with the late Margaret Thatcher.

Ah, yes, to be “anti-establishment” means you must be anti-capitalism, not anti-government.

In a frank interview with Q Magazine, the 69-year-old appears to have revealed that he is a closet Conservative after decades of refusing to publicly disclose his political allegiances.

The Rolling Stones frontman, who was knighted in 2002, admitted having at least two one-to-one meetings with Lady Thatcher in the 1980s, and also revealed he was left stunned by the negative reaction to the former prime minister’s death this year.
