May caught blinking ‘HELP ME!’ in Morse code at Brexit dinner

Theresa May blinks help in morse code OTP

A recent leaked report suggested that Theresa May “begged for help” at a dinner with EU leaders.

This behaviour could just be the tip of the iceberg, though, as an analysis of her recent appearances suggests that May has been begging for help for months.


Off The Perch spoke to the analyst who’s been observing May:

I first suspected that something was amiss during the conference speech when letters began falling off the wall. Most people missed this, but the falling letters actually spelled, ‘OH GOD. OH CHRIST. WHY WON’T IT STOP?’

I started looking back through her other appearances, and I noticed that May appeared to be blinking in Morse code. Mostly, she was signalling: ‘HELP ME. THEY’RE MAKING ME BE PRIME MINISTER. THEY’VE GOT MY LAST HORCRUX.’

No one noticed she was blinking in code, because everyone thinks she is just crap. Which she is, to be fair. But on top of being a bad public speaker, she’s also been blinking a plea for help.

There was a meal where she arranged her mashed potatoes into a big SOS too. And another one at which she threw gravy in David Davis’s face and tried to leap out of a window.

And in retrospect, that last one was a real giveaway.


Obviously, having a Prime Minister who doesn’t want to do the job is a bit of a problem.

A bigger problem is that the Tories who do want to be PM would be so much worse.

And then we’ll all be blinking for rescue.

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?
