Nearly 50,000 hits for Clegg-Osborne “liar liar” video

Nearly 50,000 people have viewed a music video against the coalition's cuts, which features a montage of Nick Clegg, George Osborne and David Cameron droning on about us "all being in this together", and even a star-turn from Mr Clegg's (alleged) political inspiration - Mrs Thatcher.

Nearly 50,000 people have viewed a music video against the coalition’s cuts, which features a montage of Nick Clegg, George Osborne and David Cameron droning on about us “all being in this together”, and even a star-turn from Mr Clegg’s (alleged) political inspiration – Mrs Thatcher.

The Facebook page, meanwhile, currently stands at more than 1,600 fans, and there are plans afoot to release the single at Christmas and do a “Killing In The Name”, as outlined by video producer Captain SKA, who says:

“I’m busy finalising all the detais for the release of “liar liar” and there will be an official press release very soon with details of charities and a launch gig. I can confirm though that the release date will be 11th December and it will be available through all online platforms, and as a ringtone too!”

Watch it:

Profits from download sales will go to various charities affected by the cuts, including homeless charity Crisis, and a number of smaller grassroots organisations that, Captain SKA tells Left Foot Forward:

“… are being decimated by this wonderful government.”
