Tories deny burying their heads over Brexit / knife crime / Islamophobia / austerity / climate chaos…

People with their heads in the sand - one saying "We're looking for our keys"
Wilson Belshaw

The Tories have been in government for nearly nine years. During that time, they’ve taken expert advice from many smart people – all of which they’ve ignored. As a result, we’re increasingly at the point where their chickens are coming home to roost.

In response, the PM has decided to make like another bird and bury her head in the sand.

Useless means useless

Theresa May has a lot to answer for – questions like:

  • When are you going to admit that making everyone poorer just makes everyone poorer?
  • It was t-shirt weather in February for fuck’s sake – are you taking the piss pushing for more fracking?
  • What have you got against people with disabilities / people who aren’t white / anyone who isn’t a millionaire backer of the Tory Party?
  • Why didn’t you realise that doing all the things which lead to more crime would lead to more crime?
  • Is this supposed to be a Brexit plan or has someone thrown up in your ring binder?

Theresa May generally responds by saying:

Let me be clear.

She then jams her head into the bucket of sand she carries around with her.

Lent means Lent

While the country collapses, May found time to give a shout out to the religion she pretends to follow:

To be fair, though, her ideas do have something in common with Jesus. They all got crucified too.

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?
