Many people are claiming that Boris Johnson is undermining Theresa May. And the reason they’re claiming this is because he is. And you’d have to be incredibly deluded or astoundingly weak to claim otherwise.
Luckily, the person in charge of our country is both of those things.
And as such, she was able to pretend that Johnson wasn’t making her look like a clown. Even as he literally painted clown makeup on her unwilling face.
Boris means Boris
May was being interviewed when she made the claim that Johnson wasn’t undermining her. Even as she was saying this, though, the Foreign Secretary was standing behind her – making raspberry noises and pulling stupid faces.
The PM is a seasoned professional when it comes to pretending that everything is fine though. As such, Johnson had little option but to walk up and start twerking in front of her.
When that didn’t work, the grimy aristo-path simply shouted, “I AM BORIS! HEAR ME BORE!” over everything May was saying. Which wasn’t much, to be fair, as May has very little to say.
Of course, Johnson did eventually manage to overshadow her. Notably when he joked that Libya has a bright future once they:
clear the dead bodies away.
This led to claims that Johnson was being ‘insensitive’. Although that’s not really right, is it? Because being ‘insensitive’ is when your friend has been advised to lose weight and you keep offering them cupcakes.
Johnson was being a systematically repugnant, boarding school mutant with all the compassion of a nail bomb. A person who affords human life the same sanctity that a Labrador offers a discarded sausage. A third-rate terror who would steer this country with all the grace and competence of a toddler operating a steamroller.
Although obviously Johnson can’t be fired.
…who exactly is defending him at this point?
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.
