Tories lose DUP support – fears Satan could go next

Arlene Foster, Satan, and Theresa May
John Shafthauer

On Monday 19 November, the DUP failed to honour its Confidence and Supply Agreement with the Conservative Party. This is bad for the government, as the Coalition of Strength and Stability relies on these political mutants.

The fear is that other allies could drop support next.

Coalition

The government is in a loose coalition with the following malevolent entities:

  • The DUP.
  • People who tut in public.
  • Satan.
  • Newspaper owners.
  • The Spice Girls.
  • The monster army on the other side of Jacob Rees-Mogg’s wardrobe portal.
  • Britain’s most racist landlords.
  • Gary Barlow’s accountant.
  • The woman who put a cat in a bin
  • Invertebrates that badgers prey upon.

Obviously, many of these groups can’t abandon the Tories; they’re reliant on them, in fact. But one person who thinks enough is enough is the Prince of Darkness.

In an exclusive interview with Off The Perch, the fallen angel said:

Theresa May’s agreement has brought the nation together in agreement that Theresa May is an absolute chapstick. That’s no good for me. I liked it better when the country was split down the middle. Time to stir the pot!

Strange times

The devil proceeded to stir a small pot he’d brought with him for emphasis. He had several other props too, including a rubber chicken, an Alan Shearer mask, and a sexy postman costume. Turns out the devil is a weird dude.

But yeah – that’s the Tory party anyway – slightly more fucked than it was yesterday.

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?
