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 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.
