Catchy political parody song overtakes Ed Sheeran in the UK charts

Catchy political parody song overtakes Ed Sheeran in the UK charts


There is a surprise song on top of the iTunes singles chart, and it has to do with UK politics.

“Liar Liar GE2017” by Captain Ska is a scathing attack on Prime Minister Theresa May’s policies on the NHS, education, and poverty. 

The catchy melody and lyrics — “She’s a liar, liar, you can’t trust her, no no no no” — catapulted the song to number 2 on iTunes charts, behind “Despacito” but ahead of Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, Rita Ora, and Harry Styles. 

However, radio stations have rejected calls (and a petition) to play the song, as broadcasters must show impartiality ahead of election, according to the Ofcom regulator rules. 

“When there’s nurses going hungry and schools in decline I don’t recognise this broken country of mine,” the lyrics say. 

The song was originally released in 2010 to target the coalition government of David Cameron.
