PM proposes leaders’ debate to lure all her enemies to one place

Cage trap with a sign on it that reads 'DEBATE IN HERE'

Theresa May – who is possibly the least forthcoming PM we’ve ever had – has offered to debate Jeremy Corbyn on Brexit. Or has she? Because a leaked Snapchat suggests she has something more sinister in mind.

It’s a trap!

In the leaked message chain, May spoke with someone calling themselves ACME Corporation. It read:

TM: So you can get me the big cage trap?

AC: 👍 

TM: And the ACME rockets?

AC: 👍👍👍 

TM: And the 50 ton anvil?

Read on...

AC: 👍👍👍👍👍 

TM: Hot diggedy damn!

Another leak revealed who May wants to lure into her trap:

  • All the leaders of the major UK political parties (Vince Cable was left off – presumably because she’ll need him to form a new coalition government if / when things go sideways).
  • Anyone under 50.
  • Anyone with a Twitter account.
  • People she’s made poorer / more wrongly deported.
  • Mr Blobby.

It’s unclear why there’d be a debate in the first place, what with there being nothing for people to vote on. But maybe that’s why May wants a debate. It was too much of a risk during an actual election, which is why she sent the recently bereaved Amber Rudd in her place.

Will the other leaders fall for this trap? They might as well. If her Brexit plan is anything to go by, her latest trap will make Wile E. Coyote look like Machiavelli.

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.
