Force Radio Stations to play Captain SKA's "Liar Liar GE2017"

This petition had 4,539 supporters

The recent song, Liar Liar GE2017 - Captain SKA, has reached the charts and hit number 10. The song accuses Theresa May as being a liar and includes clips from various speeches that detail U-Turns May has made, or simply outline lies that she made to gain power.

Radio Stations have acknowledged the song's position, however Chart Shows - such as Capital FM Big Top 40 and Heart Radio - are censoring the song from listeners. This weeks Big Top 40 saw presenters say the song's name for number 10 and then jump straight in to playing number 9 (with Heart Radio following a similar approach).

This is shameful and outlines the censorship in this country - now the music we hear is selected for us. A song writer from Captain SKA has stated, "This can only be seen as an attempt by the media owners to undermine public opinion. Thousands of people have downloaded this track and we demand that it is aired as any other song would be".

This is against what the charts should be about. I am demanding Capital FM, Heart and future chart shows (such as the BBC Radio 1) air the song "Liar Liar GE2017" like all other songs would be.
