Prime Minister vows to fix problems caused by the last Home Secretary

Support us and go ad-free

Theresa May came out on Sunday 4 June and said “enough is enough”. As for too long, the people tasked with protecting us have seen their funding cut. But the Prime Minister has assured us that whenever she finds out who made those cuts, there’ll be hell to pay!

Enough is enough

The police have been telling the Home Secretary that “enough is enough” since 2012:

Unfortunately, no one remembers who the Home Secretary was back then. Least of all the usually top-notch media, who were largely happy to take the PM’s speech at face value.

Read on...

May has assured us that she “is very clear that the former Home Secretary must be found”. She refused to say how we would actually track down this rogue politician though. Saying instead:

Strong and enough. I mean enough is stable. I mean strong and slogan. Slogan and slogan! Damnit!

Extra funding

In the meantime, the Tories have promised an increased ‘police presence’. Which doesn’t mean ‘extra police’, because we’re not made of money – there’s no magic slogan tree!

Instead, officers will be encouraged to walk around carrying a big mirror. A move which could make it look like we have twice as many feet on the street as we do now. It could even appear like we have infinite officers if you get two of them to walk side-by-side angling their mirrors right.

They’re also going to introduce ‘police-crows’ or ‘scare-perps’. Which will be regular scarecrows basically but with police helmets.

And of course they’ll be spying on regular people online. Because Theresa May would use pretty much anything as an excuse to get into our emails. Almost as if she was just a really creepy weirdo.

Get Involved!

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.
