Plan to scrap human rights plays well with non-humans

Theresa May’s election campaign has been more misjudged than that production of The Lion King On Ice! that used real lions. But she’s finally worked out what people in this country hate most of all – and that’s those hideous human beings and their abhorrent human rights!

Oh, the humanity!

We caught up with some of Britain’s non-human citizens to see what they thought:

Zargon – Sewer Mutant

Man, I hate those humans. Always walking around – having the right to life, liberty, education, free speech, and party.

It’s good to see a politician brave enough to tell people that she wants to treat them like sewer mutants, though. And it’s wonderful to see a media that tells the humans that this is what they should want!

R2-B2 – Robot

PRIME MINISTER HAS RESPONDED TO TERRORIST ATTEMPT TO DESTROY WESTERN VALUES BY PROMISING TO CURTAIL WESTERN VALUES. ERROR! ERROR! DOES NOT COMPUTE!

Sssecil – Lizard Person

Exsssellent! Firssst we remove the human rightsss, then we remove the human hopesss, then we remove the human organsss and tenderloinsss!

Humanity strikes back!

Many people have pointed out that scrapping human rights won’t actually help us fight terrorism. That Theresa May is actually just trying to draw attention away from her abysmal record. And that she’s basically just using a terrorist attack to go after something she hated anyway.

The only snag is that she has foolishly allowed humans to vote on Thursday 8 June. And it would be a real shame for monsters like her if the humans voted in their own interest.

Get Involved!

– Go out and vote on 8 June.

We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account

* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
