There’s a hostile environment in the UK. Namely because the word ‘gammon’ is being used to denigrate xenophobes of diverse socio-economic backgrounds: a situation which allowed the Home Office to deport these poor, poor men to Gammon Island.

Shame

So-called ‘gammon’ have been facing an increasingly tough situation. Some have compared it to the hardships faced by the Windrush generation. One of the affected men told us:

I’ve been ridiculed on the street simply because I said ridiculous things on BBC Question Time. I don’t know who these libtard, snowflake cucks think they are, throwing around bad words online.

The interview ended at this point, as the ‘gammon’ began to weep salty tears. It’s unclear if he was upset or just seasoning himself.

Holiday in the sun

Many of the deported men had never even been to Gammon Island. One of our reporters visited it to assess the situation.

What she found were scores of men – many of whom were floating in the sea on giant pineapple rings. One of them – a former bank manager from Kent – had a ukulele. He was singing “We’re gammon” to the sound of Bob Marley’s Jammin’.

“We’re reclaiming the word,” he told us. “And that Bob Marley was OK. I’d respect them more if they were all global mega stars. Although they’re too lazy for that, obviously.”

The former bank manager leaned forwards at that point to nibble some meat that was poking out of his top pocket.

A not so hidden problem

The plight of these men may have gone unnoticed. Thankfully though, a good 80% of our media and political class are registered as citizens of Gammon Island for tax purposes.

In other words, they’re all Gammon citizens by choice.
