    Everyone who has already reclaimed bank charges, wants to, or simply supports the ability to do so, can assist in getting it to the top of the agenda. The “I fought the Lloyds” song by Oystar (which incidentally is a great song in it’s own right) is a non-profit protest song featuring money saving expert Martin Lewis who has led the way in helping people to reclaim unfair bank charges.

    Over a million people have recalimed an estimated £1bn in bank charges. Yet the Government has ignored a petition, the banks are charging more than ever, and the regulators have sided with them to put it all on hold! One of the ways we can fight back is by ordering this song and getting it into the charts in January.

    Help it get to the top of the charts (at the moment it is beating the sales of the new Spice Girls single) by spending 50p via text – if enough people do, it will be at No.1 for the week of the big Office of Fair Trading test case. I have pre-ordered mine today, you just need to text “bankers” to 82822. On the release date of 7th January you will get a reminder text telling you how to download the song in mp3 format from the site.

    For more information on this case, how it is working, and additionally to recommend one of the best sites around for all things money related, go to Martin Lewis’s money saving expert website. For a direct link to the protest song go here.

    Just to stress, neither the band, record label nor MoneySavingExpert.com profit from the song. Please help spread the word!
