Theresa May promised the UK that on 8 June she would bring strength and stability.

Strong and err…
Following the successful general election that May called for some reason, she gave a rousing speech – the mighty leader telling her adoring fans:
So… well the thing is… err… is it hot in here or is it just me?
May then announced that she was forming a coalition government with the DUP. A political party which is famous for its… strong views. The DUP issued the following statement in response:
Global warming is a gay conspiracy to make eejits believe in dinosaurs.
Despite May having provided us with such strong stability, there are rumours that Boris Johnson is trying to oust her:
Which is perhaps unsurprising, as Johnson’s campaign was, if anything, even stronger than May’s:

Onwards and upwards!
Regardless of which colossal Tory powerhouse takes us forward, it’s clear that after this election, the EU will be forced to give us a good deal. If only to get away from us. Much like when a person gets out of a fight by pretending to be ‘loco’ and beating themselves up.
Although so far, our European neighbours have not commented on the election:
German government spokeswoman says it will not comment on the outcome of the General Election out of respect and politeness

Your fight is our fight. But as many of you will know, speaking truth to power has never been easy, especially for a small, independent media outlet such as the Canary. We have weathered many attempts to silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media. Now more than ever, we need your support.
We don’t have fancy offices, and our entire staff works remotely. Almost all of our income is spent on paying the people who make the Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our team and enables us to continue to do what we do: disrupt power, and amplify people.
But we can’t do this without you. So please, if you appreciate our work, can you help us continue the fight?
