I am not a puppet

Speaking outside 10 Downing Street, May said:

There is something I would like to clear up. I did not promote Gavin Williamson because he knows my deepest, darkest secrets. Far from it. I promoted him because he is the right man for the job.

May glanced at Williamson before reading the next part – a look of nausea on her face:

I would also like to say that Gavin Williamson is the single best human being I have ever met. And in all honesty, he would make a much better prime minister than myself. Although, obviously, I will be around for the foreseeable…

May looked at Williamson again as he held up several fingers:

for at least another eight months.

The PM then shuffled away, muttering: “Jesus – that long?”

Dirt

People are wondering what dirt Williamson could possibly have on May. The rumour is that, when May said she once ‘ran through a field of wheat’, what she actually meant was ‘killed and ate a clown’.

Although obviously that’s just a rumour.

For now.
