When Theresa May was accused of being a robot, she reassuringly explained:
I am not a robot. ERROR! ERROR! Please insert conscience!
Which was obviously enough for most of us to believe that she was probably human. Or, at the very least, some sort of shabby cyborg.
Her person-status has once more been thrown into question, however, as the PM has shockingly failed to complete an online CAPTCHA test.
I am not a robot
The Prime Minister was setting up a WhatsApp account for herself. Possibly because she needed a method of sending messages without them being leaked. Or maybe because our loyal cash-cows friends in Saudi Arabia needed a means of ordering murder toys defence equipment without attracting too much attention.
When setting up her account, though, May encountered the familiar CAPTCHA test:
Most people would have simply used their mouse cursor to tick the appropriate box. May did not do that, though. She instead stared unblinkingly at the screen for 52 minutes before asking:
Is there something I am supposed to do?
Perhaps even more alarmingly, she then shot eye-lasers at an intern who was delivering the government’s latest unfavourable polling data.
Inane in the mainframe
Claims that May might be a robot go back years. As a former Liberal Democrat junior minister recently revealed:
I heard that May was inhuman before I started at the Home Office, but ‘inhuman’ doesn’t even begin to cover it. Every time the topic of immigration came up, she just shouted ‘EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!‘ and spun around on her office chair. And if you’re wondering why she looked so confused eating chips that time, it’s because when May orders ‘chips’, she expects ‘microchips’.

Just because Theresa May is a robot doesn’t mean that she’s unfit to be Prime Minister, though.
Because actually, what makes her unfit to be PM is her rank incompetence, her blustering lack of direction, and her total absence of any moral centre.

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.
