Theresa May admits using jam mould to spawn young Tory MPs

Two young Tory MPs over an image of mould

On top of everything else, it turns out that Theresa May eats mouldy jam:

In a passage which stretches the use of the word ‘good’, Mail Online reported:

It is advice which could have come from a Good Housekeeping guide

But why?

Well, it turns out it’s not about the jam at all.

Breaking the mould

It’s often been a source of mystery where young Tory MPs come from. The few that exist – like Ben Bradley here – don’t seem quite normal. They seem almost single-celled in their intelligence:

 

Off The Perch can now exclusively reveal that the PM has been spawning these little weirdos using her gone-off preserves. In a statement to us, May said:

And I would have got away with it too, if it wasn’t for you meddling twats!

We asked exactly what she would have got away with, as these mould-spawned MPs were neither use nor ornament. Her answer was pretty predictable:

Jam means jam!

In defence

Some people have defended eating this horror jam:

There are obviously a few problems with this line of thought:

  1. No it isn’t.
  2. If you love jam so much that you’ll poke through mould to get at it, but not so much that you’ll eat it before it sours, something has gone wrong.
  3. Unless you’re seven, you’re too old to be eating jam anyway. Get yourself some herring or porridge like a normal adult.

If you yourself have mouldy jam in your cupboards, do us all a favour and toss it before it evolves into the next foreign secretary.

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?
