Someone ought to have told the TUC that the inviolable CliffRichard (pictured discovering atheism) had a god-given right to an annual crack at the Christmas number one.
Short of The Pogues coming up with something half-decent, Ihope the nation’s affections will turn to a single by a newly formed band, TheWorkers.
Under the auspices of the TUC, they have released a remix ofthe Canned Heat classic, Let’s Work Together, to mark the day of action bypublic sector employees on 30 November.
One of the stars of the popular beat combo is MargaretGreer, a social worker from Enfield, north London, who once auditioned for TheX Factor. She didn’t appear on the programme so clearly she is talented.
Greer is quoted on the TUC website as saying: “If we don’ttake action we are walking blindly into poverty. Every worker should bestriking as our future – and the future of young people – depend on it.”
So why not buy Let’s Work Together? With some judiciousdownloading, you can time it just right to deny Sir Cliff his annual pilgrimageto the top of the charts.
You need not feel (too) guilty about it either: 40p of eachsale goes to Age UK.
