Shortly after the fire, it was incorrectly assumed that the song " King's Cross ", recorded by the synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys as part of their 1987 album Actually , was written in reference to the fire.  Duo frontman Neil Tennant clarified that the song (recorded before the fire) had been written as "a hymn to the people getting left out of Thatcherism ".  Incidentally, Mark Burdman of the Executive Intelligence Review argued that the incident "charred" Thatcherism,  and opposition MPs in the House of Commons used the event to accuse the government of sacrificing safety in cutting the transportation budget.
