“National Living Rage” Christmas single takes aim at retailers


A group of Labour MPs have released their contender for the Christmas Number One spot entitled National Living Rage taking aim at retailers who have cut workers perks following the introduction of the National Living Wage.

Siobhain McDonagh who spearheaded the charge against M&S following recent changes to staff pay, led the chorus.

The song includes performances from MPs including Dan Jarvis, Angela Rayner and Mary Creagh.

Rewording the Christmas classic Do They Know it‘s Christmas Time to raise awareness of hardship of some retail workers over Christmas, the chorus has been changed to “keep the perks, don‘t be scrooge this Christmas time.”

Any proceeds made by the single will go to Band Aid Trust as the song trademark is owned by them.
