The Tories add Big Business to the list of things they want to f*ck
On the second anniversary of Brexit, the Tories have found themselves in a generous mood. As such, they’ve expanded the list of people they have no generosity for. But weirdly, the latest addition to the ‘Fuck List’ is ‘businesses’.
Weirdly because it’s usually businesses that pay the Tories to fuck everyone else.

Off The Perch caught up with one of the businesses that’s in line for a fucking:
I don’t understand it. How could they possibly come for us?
I seem to remember they came for poor people, and we didn’t speak out, because we were too busy drinking champagne and shouting ‘CH-CHING!’
They came for the foreign people next, which was was a bit of a worry, because we employed some of them. Turned out you can still underpay them even if they are being marginalised though, so it was a win-win.
Next they went for that Brexit thing, and we thought ‘hang on a minute, what the fuck is this shit?’ Theresa May said we were still in charge, though, so we assumed it would all be fine.
Now it turns out May’s been telling everyone she speaks to that they’re in charge, and the Brexiteers think it means they can fuck us.
Who could have fucking predicted they’d turn on us?
Although indiscriminately fucking businesses might not seem like the best idea, it’s worth remembering something. The people in charge don’t care if a few businesses fail or a few thousand people lose their jobs, as long as they’re still the ones in charge.
And also, despite their name, the Conservatives just like fucking things.

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.
