The protests now have a perfect theme tune, because Captain SKA has issued a new version of Liar Liar in time for Trump’s arrival.
Captain SKA wrote Liar Liar in 2010 in response to the actions of David Cameron’s newly formed coalition government. The band also created a new version ahead of the 2017 general election. Although Liar Liar GE2017 reached number 1 in the charts, the BBC and other radio stations refused to play it.
And now, to prepare for Trump’s visit, there’s a new version of the song:
No, no, no, no…
The song is openly critical of Trump’s track record, claiming that he is:
Standing up with racists.
The song also asserts that under Trump’s presidency:
Fascism rises while freedom dies.
Tim Booth, lead-singer of the band James, recently called Trump an “incredibly dangerous man for the planet”. Even children in the UK have questioned Trump’s foreign policy actions. Most recently, there’s been international outrage over his “zero tolerance” immigration policy that has ripped children away from their parents at the US border.
Lying, racist, sexual abuser.
Captain SKA calls on listeners to:
Take this orange Mussolini and show him the door.
Thousands of people in the UK want to show opposition to Trump through protest. And now they have the perfect theme tune to march to.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
