Protest Song from Wakefield CathedralApril 21st, 2012 | Posted by in England
VAT Ditty, written and performed by Pamela Greener has been created to protest at the U.K. Government’s measure to charge VAT on renovation work being carried out on listed buildings, in this case Wakefield Cathedral where renovations have been ongoing for four years, but now have been halted because of lack of funds to take account of the VAT imposition, announced in the recent Budget. As the song makes clear this move is anti-community, ironic given that it is being pursued by a government which has made so much of its “Big Society” propaganda – to which it pays such huge lip service, but in fact acts against in so many ways.
