Inept conman caught trying to pull the same scam twice

John Shafthauer

In 2016, a scam was perpetrated against the British people that made PPI look like TLC. A scam known as the ‘£350m-a-week NHS Swindle’. A scam that many were perceptible to, as the conmen behind it discovered our one weakness – our kryptonite:


Since then, British citizens have undergone extensive hypnotherapy to help us better spot untruths – even when they’re written large on public transport. One returning conman doesn’t seem to realise that though, as he has once more promised – wait for it:


Lies, damned lies, and Boris Johnson

Unfortunately for Johnson, the people of Britain are by this point resilient to his bullshit. Much like how catching a disease leaves you immune to it in future. Although obviously that comparison is lacking, because Johnson is clearly much, much worse than any disease. Even that really bad one that does all the irreparable damage to your area.

As such, Johnson had barely rambled through his latest manifesto before the first innovative jam was thrown at him.

A national embarrassment

Of course, it isn’t only the previously-scammed who are annoyed. The people who helped Boris scam us the first time are equally upset. Because when you’ve gotten away with the scam of the century, the last thing you want to do is remind everyone about that time when you scammed them.

Even the Queen is unhappy. She was overheard telling the Archbishop of Canterbury:

Is this fuckwit for real? I’m not being funny, but someone needs to bang this c*** out – pronto.

To which the Archbishop replied:


PM Material 

Many are saying that Boris has once more shown he’s not PM material. Although to be fair, ‘PM material’ doesn’t really mean much anymore. Because the last two Prime Ministers included a human being who allegedly screwed animals and a robot who was allegedly a human being.

If anything, Boris – with his transparent charm, vicious nature, and archaic, pug-faced buffoonery – would be the most perfect example of a Tory PM yet.

And you can write that on the side of a fucking bus.

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?
