The Conservative government’s EU Withdrawal Bill has passed its first hurdle. A bill which will end the supremacy of EU law, but also give the Tories the sort of power that you wouldn’t want anyone to have – least of all a Tory government that’s inhumanity is only matched by its incompetence.
Speaking to a room full of people who were pretending to be members of the public, Theresa May explained:
Obviously there’s some doubt about what I’ll do with the sort of power that would make Kim Jong-un slaver like a horny pitbull. But don’t worry, because I assure you that, despite my long history of doing only bad things, if given the opportunity to act with impunity, I will strive for nothing but good!
When the bill passed its first test, May said to the same room:
MUWAHAHAHAHA! AND SOON I WILL BECOME PURE ENERGY!
Somewhat surprisingly, working class hero Dennis Skinner voted in favour of this horror show. Although it’s not that surprising if you know he still supports Lexit – i.e. the concept that a right-wing Tory government will for some reason deliver a beneficial, left-wing Brexit.
Some have argued that Skinner is merely looking out for his constituents. Which has some merit. Because as we all know, what the North of England needs right now is a Tory government that’s unfettered by the rule of law.
There may be trouble ahead
The only time Theresa May keeps her word is when the thing she has promised to do is terrible. She is not the sort of person who should be given more power. Especially as she is little more than a placeholder Prime Minister, and her potential replacements look like the cast of The Monster Mash.

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.
