Theresa May has heard the Liar Liar protest song by Captain Ska, and she's not happy about it

Theresa May speaks out about the song, which reached Number 4 on the Official Singles Chart.

You'll no doubt be aware that there's a General Election this week, and Prime Minister Theresa May has been answering all those tough questions - including how she feels about Captain Ska's anti-Theresa May track Liar Liar. 

The song, which includes clips from her speeches and interviews alongside lyrics that accuse her of being a liar, reached Number 4 on last week's Official Singles Chart. 

The PM has now said she's "heard bits" of Captain Ska's track and, understandably, she's not a fan. 

"Well, I've heard bits of it and to be perfectly honest I'm not very happy about it," she told BBC's Newsbeat. 

"I don't much like it, I don't think anybody would when they heard a song about themselves like that."

Promoted by campaign organisation the People's Assembly Against Austerity, the song wasn't played on Radio 1's Official Chart show but the station said it hadn't been banned.

Sales of Liar Liar last week were driven by downloads, with 42,000 people picking up a digital download of the track, while it was played just over 300,000 times on streaming services. 

All proceeds from the song between May 26 and June 8 will be split between food banks around the UK and The People’s Assembly Against Austerity.
