Theresa May promised the UK that on 8 June she would bring strength and stability.
It’s 9 June today.
And the country is getting a taste of what she promised:

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

Almost as if there’s no way of doing so without saying ‘WTF’, ‘LOL’, or ‘why do you keep doing this to yourself?’

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?
