The lyrics of the song includes pieces from some of May’s speeches and interviews claiming that she wouldn’t call a general election attacking the Prime Minsters record in office.

Opening Verse:

  • “We all know politicians like telling lies. Big ones, little ones, porky pies. Saying they’re strong, and stable, won’t disguise.
    We’re still being taken for a ride,”
  • “she’s a Liar, Liar…you can’t trust her, no no no no”
  • “when there’s nurses going hungry and schools in decline I don’t recognize this broken country of mine”.

This song has received over 1 million views on YouTube in just 5 days. It is continually receiving support via downloads and streaming from iTunes. However, famous UK radio stations including Capital FM and Heart have rejected playing it on air as they feel that it may influence the upcoming 2017 elections.

This song is being advocated by The People’s Assembly Against Austerity, who is encouraging the public to protest about the track not being played on the radio like every other song on the charts.

All proceeds from the song between 26th May till 8th of June will be distributed between food banks all around the UK and The People’s Assembly Against Austerity. Despite the fact that other news outlets have contacted radio stations requesting for comments about not airing the song.
