Theresa May is making an emergency trip to Brussels today after raising the Brexit threat level from ‘Omnishambles’ to ‘Catastrofuck’. Speaking to the press before boarding her plane, the Prime Minister claimed that criticism of her handling of Brexit was ‘sour grapes’. Ironic, given she was vomiting the contents of a bottle of Beaujolais over her shoes at the time.

To a new level

May attempted to announce the raised threat level using the government’s new app YourGov. Unfortunately, ‘teething problems’ with the app meant that audio of the Prime Minister recorded automatically as she did so, and was uploaded to the site with the threat level. Users who checked on the threat level this morning were played a 30-second track of what sounded like May weeping, while Brexit Secretary David Davis played My Heart Will Go On on the lute.

In a statement, Downing Street confirmed that the audio was authentic, stating:

We would like to acknowledge the unfortunate teething problems with the YourGov app during this morning’s announcement. We can confirm the Prime Minister was sincerely moved by the Brexit Secretary’s mastery of the lute, and is otherwise well. She looks forward to productive talks in Brussels this afternoon.

But the EU’s Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier poured cold water on the Prime Minister’s hopes. In a terse video statement released during May’s flight to Brussels, Barnier claimed the PM and her team were ‘plein de merde’, which translates loosely to ‘full of shit’.

Trouble at home

Sources within the Conservative Party also expressed public dissatisfaction with May’s performance. Off The Perch found a disgruntled Tory sitting untidily on the floor of a Commons bar. He told us:

Britain’s biggest catastrofuck right now lives at Number 1o Downing Street. She’s called Theresa.

The Labour Party refused to comment on the matter, saying that to do so would “be like kicking a puppy in the face”.

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.
