After cancelling her Brexit vote, Theresa May scurried back under her rock for the festive period. As you’d expect, she’s used her time away to do absolutely fuck all. With no new answers, she needed an easy first day back.
That’s why she agreed to be questioned by the man who is to interviewing what a gopher is to interviewing – Andrew Marr.
The interview between TM and AM went largely as you’d expect:
AM: So, prime minister – would you like to tell us about how awesome Brexit is going?
TM: *LOOKING SLIGHTLY PANICKED BY THE UNEXPECTEDLY TOUGH QUESTIONING* Brexit means Brexit!
AM: Yes it does, prime minister. Now would you like to give us an update on the NHS? Some of the usual complainers have been suggesting it’s not quite up to snuff.
TM: Well, the problem is that people keep getting sick. I mean… umm… we’re making record investments. Brexit means Brexit!
TM: I’m sorry?
AM: You know – just a general ‘question’.
TM: Should I answer that however I like?
AM: And without interruption – this is the Andrew Marr show after all!
The pair began laughing, but as they did, a young woman who’d previously identified as a socialist came into Marr’s view. The interviewer immediately stood up on his chair – the hairs on the back of his head standing up. He then proceeded to bark at the socialist woman until she went away.
AM: WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!
Still, we did learn one thing during the interview. Namely that Marr in 2019 is likely to be just as useless as Marr in 2018.

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.
