Carol singing with the 1 per cent – Christmas has come early for the bankers

 

Peaceful carol singing and present delivery for the bankers as we approach that special time of year for them, bonus time. This will take place outside bailed out banks with the singing led by the 3 Kings of the 1 per cent: David Cameron, George Osborne and Boris Johnson

When and where?

  • Meet 2pm – Finsbury Square
  • 3-4pm outside Royal Bank of Scotland’s HQ, Bishopsgate, near Liverpool Street Station in London, Friday 25 November, one month before Christmas, for delivering of Christmas present and carol singing.
  • 5-6pm – Public Christmas carol service outside Liverpool Street station.

Christmas has come early for the City of London and the bankers, with huge pay awards announced this week and bonus season just around the corner.

Earlier this week new figures showed that the City of London’s average pay has jumped by 12 per cent to £83,000, with managing directors enjoying a 21 per cent increase to £237,000.

For the rest of the population, pay cuts are the reality. Whilst a FTSE 100 Chief Executive Officer earns £4.2 million per year, a nurse earns just £26,570 and a cleaner £7,278.

To celebrate this Occupy London will be hosting carol singing with Scrooge and the 3 Kings of the 1 per cent: David Cameron, George Osborne and Boris Johnson on Friday 25 November.

We will get into the festive mood by singing carols to the tune of the 1 per cent and peacefully delivering presents to the bankers paid for at the expense of the 99 per cent, including taxpayers’ bailouts, massive bonuses and privatisation so that the rich can keep getting richer!

Traditional Christmas Carols and pop songs will be remixed – austerity style! You can look forward to performances of “Last Christmas Young People Had Jobs”, “We Bring You Many Cutbacks,” “Deck the Banks with public lolly” and many more!

The carol singers will be peacefully singing Christmas songs and delivering gifts on the afternoon on 25 November before holding a public Christmas carol service outside Liverpool Street station from 5pm – 6pm.
