On 15 January, Theresa May suffered the largest ever government loss in the Commons, and the biggest Tory rebellion of the modern era. So what’s left for her now?
Well, according to the woman herself:
I can’t be the best PM in history, but I can sure as heck be the worst! Let’s keep these records coming! Woo!
May admits she may not be able to lose bigger than last night, but she does have a few other ideas:
How about I lose the next vote on a pogo stick? And while I’m on the pogo stick, I’m juggling Brexit impact assessments? And as I’m juggling, I’m downing 2 litre bottles of fizzy pop?
That would be a real record, right? That would mean I did something? That would mean I have worth?
A spokesperson from Guinness had something to say about this:
It’s really just overkill at this point. She’s already going in the next World Record Book as the worst PM in living memory. The only reason she’s not worst overall is because of what Cavendish did to those poor otters.
Not one to give up on a stupid idea, May has said she aims to replace Cavendish. David Cameron, meanwhile, has said he doesn’t regret calling the referendum – even in light of May’s plan to re-invade Iraq on a space hopper.
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.
