When we handed in our Article 50 papers, Theresa May made it clear that unless we get a favourable deal, we would passively collaborate with ISIS to ensure the deaths of mainland Europeans withhold security information.
That plan didn’t work, however. And so the PM has been forced to bring out the big guns.
If there’s one thing that Britain is known for, it’s all that period drama bollocks we pump out. Which is why May threatened to withhold the next series of ‘Downton Abbey’ from our continental cousins.
The only problem, as the EU’s trained negotiators pointed out, is that ‘Downton Abbey’ has finished. And so May threatened to withhold some other things. The list of such things including:
- The Beatles.
- David Beckham.
- Music Hall.
- The Teletubbies.
- Rick Astley.
- Prawn Cocktails.
Once more, the negotiators were quick to point out that these were things that alternatively were:
- Not really things anymore.
- Never that desirable in the first place.
- Probably not even British (in the case of prawn cocktails, which were also no longer a thing and undesirable).
Made in Britain
After failing to name anything the Europeans might want, the PM shouted:
Do we not make anything worthwhile in this country anymore?
At which point someone passed her a red baseball cap that said ‘MAKE BANANAS BENDY AGAIN’. And all at once the reality of her bargaining hand sunk in.
We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
