A song in protest of UK Prime Minister Theresa May has become No.1 on iTunes in the country.
The song which describes the British PM as a “liar” and calls the country “broken” has been sung by Captain Ska. Captain Ska is a group of seven session musicians who came up with the protest song ahead of the June 8 polls.
The song, titled “Liar, Liar”, is at the top of UK Official Singles Chart, but has been banned from being broadcast at the radio stations across the country.
The song featured video clips of May giving speeches with the lyrics “She’s a liar liar, you can’t trust her, no, no, no” being played in the background.
Describing their music as “new wave political”, the band said:
The success of this song shows people are fed up with this government of the rich, for the rich. We’re overwhelmed with the support and our message is that people do have the power to change society if we act together.
All the profit raised from the song will be donated to food banks and campaign group, The People’s Assembly Against Austerity. The song was released on Friday and had an earlier version which was released in 2010 in response to the coalition government.
