Theresa May-Bot malfunctions live on air

Theresa May-Bot malfunctions live on air OTP

Theresa May is one of the most advanced robots in the world. Not only is she capable of repeating over three different slogans, she can also stand in place and scowl for five minutes at a time.

Although this failed to compute today, as an interview with the robot went fantastically faulty.

BEEP-BOOP

Tory scientists adapted the May-Bot from a Stable-O-Matic 5000. It’s unable to meet regular members of the public, however, as it’s prone to picking up wireless signals from people’s phones. Which is why the May-Bot once streamed Simon Mayo’s Drivetime when she was supposed to be giving a speech about trade tariffs.

Unfortunately, these wireless issues have once more come into play, as a live studio ended up scrambling the robot’s micro-BS circuits.

This led to the PM weirdly responding to a question about her leadership:

MAY-BOT WILL PROVIDE STRONG & STABLE – GNNNNNNT – ERROR! – PLEASE INSERT CONSCIENCE AND START AGAIN.

A question about Brexit:

UK HAS BEEN REMOVED WITHOUT PLANNING! PLEASE PLAN FOR ANY FUTURE EJECTION TO AVOID ECONOMY BEING LOST!

And a question about the NHS:

EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!

Reboot

Thankfully, the PM has now been restored to factory settings. Although the factory in question had a strong trade union. Which is why the May-Bot has suddenly gone off message, and is now shouting:

A FAIR DAY’S WAGE FOR A FAIR DAY’S WORK!

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
