Theresa May is the most notorious crop-befouler Great Britain has ever known. Known as the ‘Somerset devil’ or the ‘Sussex scourge’, she famously heads out every summer and tears through fields of wheat.
This year, her devilry has a message.
May’s usual style is total decimation – the same style she’s deployed at the Home Office and Downing Street. This year, she’s been writing messages, which have read:
THEY WON’T LET ME QUIT! THEY PUT A TAG ON ME, AND I GET AN ELECTRIC SHOCK EVERY TIME I SAY SOMETHING WRONG!
JACOB REES-MOGG MAKES ME IRON HIS TROUSERS! ANNA SOUBRY EATS HER KEBABS IN MY OFFICE SO THE SMELL DOESN’T STINK UP HERS!
I CAN’T DELIVER BRAXIT! AT THIS POINT, I CAN BARELY EVEN SPELL IT!
I CONSIDERED DEFILING A PIG’S HEAD TO DESTROY MY REPUTATION, BUT I’M WORRIED NO ONE WOULD THINK ANY LESS OF ME!
I KNOW IT’S HYPOCRITICAL, BUT IF ANY ALIENS ARE READING THIS, I’D REALLY LIKE TO MIGRATE TO YOUR PLANET! THERE’S A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT DOWN HERE – AND NOT THE GOOD KIND!

He further added:
The victims of her many terrible policies have voiced similar sentiments.

We’re a thorn in the side of the establishment, but we can’t do it without your help
Your fight is our fight. But as many of you will know, speaking truth to power has never been easy, especially for a small, independent media outlet such as the Canary. We have weathered many attempts to silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media. Now more than ever, we need your support.
We don’t have fancy offices, and our entire staff works remotely. Almost all of our income is spent on paying the people who make the Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our team and enables us to continue to do what we do: disrupt power, and amplify people.
But we can’t do this without you. So please, if you appreciate our work, can you help us continue the fight?
