Theresa May refuses to say if she’d vote for herself in the next election
Theresa May voted remain in the Brexit referendum. Presumably, she also voted for herself in the election. And now, after refusing to say if she’d vote remain a second time, May has been unable to say if she’d even vote for herself.
Maybe May – Maybe Not
May was being interviewed when the question of who she’d vote for came up:
“I’m afraid I don’t answer hypothetical questions”, the PM responded.
“It’s not hypothetical though, is it”, the interviewer said. “There will be an election at some point, and no one else in your party is stupid enough to go for the job right now”.
“Ah, but I don’t know who I’ll be facing”, May answered craftily.
“It will be Corbyn”, the interview said definitively. “Whenever anyone tries to get rid of him, he just comes back stronger. He’s like the 1980s revival”.
“So you’re asking who I’d vote for between me and the absolute boy Jeremy Corbyn?” she asked – struggling to hold the microphone in her sweaty hands.
The interviewer nodded, and then leant forwards – awaiting an answer.
The Tory leader couldn’t answer though. As she knows what everyone else knows. That publicly supporting herself right now is political suicide.
Some people can sympathise with May.
Not politically or personally, obviously, as her politics and personality are both hideous.
What they can sympathise with though is the tough choice. Because not everyone likes Corbyn. But they know that the current leadership we have has all the backbone of a bowl of spaghetti.

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.
