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.

  1. Love it! Your actions are thriving this occupy movement, like not many others around the globe. Today I was speaking to an Egyptian activist and we agreed on the uttermost importance of persistence.

    To many more occupy days and actions! Love you guys!!!!

     
    • I think you will find the majority of people in the UK have forgotton about the ‘Occupy movement’ its only thriving in your own bubble.

       
      • with a name like Paddy, I am assuming some sort of Irish connection,
        I would have thought you would have more of a sense of what is right and wrong in the world of democracy and equal rights and fairness !

         
    • Oh, I would love to see this. I’m not sure if I am well enough to come 🙁
      Trying to psyche myself up at the mo. I need cheering up.

      Will you be putting a video of it here?

       
  2. Revised Lyrics to “ I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday “:

    When the world is on go slow
    And the Governments got no doe
    There’s a great big smile, on the banker’s face
    We’ve heard if often said
    With the Government they’re in bed
    Best to lock your doors
    Because you know that the Banker Clause will get its way

    Well I wish the bankers got performance pay
    Then the world start singing and the tents would go away
    Oh, I wish our Government truly, led the way
    Let the bells ring out for justice.

    While we all try to get by
    And the press no longer lie
    And our armies fight for us and not the USA.
    And the police serve us instead
    And they win back some street cred
    So the time will have come
    ‘No more tents, we can lock ’em all away

    Well I wish our Governments truly, led the way.
    Then the world start singing and the tents would go away
    Oh, I wish the bankers got performance pay
    Let the bells ring out for justice.

    When the Bankers want more doe (when the Bankers want more doe.)
    And our Government just say No. (and our Government just say No.)
    There’s a great big smile on everybody’s face.
    So if we can find a way (if we can find a way)
    All Bankster greed has gone away (bankster greed has gone away)
    It will show our intent it was meant
    And we will not go away.

    Well I wish our Governments truly, led the way.
    Then the world start singing and the tents would go away
    Oh, I wish the bankers got performance pay
    Let the bells ring out for justice.

    Okay you lot – take it!

    Well I wish the bankers got performance pay
    Then the world start singing and the tents would go away
    Oh, I wish our Government truly, led the way
    Let the bells ring out for justice.

     
    • Get it on YouTube, get it viral,
      NO.1 for XMAS,

  3. We need to put faces to the “Bankers”, – besides wearing Politicians face masks, can we make face marks of the Bankers of each bank that you will be singing carol too?

    They should be shamed as individuals, one by one. We need to see who they are, put face to the name, one by one.

    We need to see the faces of those who looted our banks.
    There should be a ” wanted” list,People need to see the name and face of these looters.
