In 2016, the United Kingdom (or bits of it, anyway) voted in favour of bringing a unicorn to life. Although the newspapers assured us it would be easy thanks to modern sorcery, it proved to be anything but. Which is why – in late 2018 – Theresa May unveiled a creature that definitely wasn’t a unicorn.

Mr Dead

In late December, the PM entered parliament with what appeared to be a unicorn. That’s appeared to be from a distance, anyway. Anyone who got closer realised it was a horse with a Cornetto glued on.

“Unicorn means unicorn,” May responded to the several hundred questions she received.

To be fair, it wasn’t just a horse; it was also incredibly sick. This is why it ended the session by coughing, shitting itself, and then dying.

“Nothing has changed,” May argued, although she did hold off allowing people to vote for this allegedly magical beast.

The neighs have it

A vote was later held – a bizarre spectacle that revolved around May beating the dead horse with the Cornetto we were supposed to believe was its horn. When that vote failed – she brought forwards a second, smellier vote – the horse being in a much more advanced state of decay.

Sadly, for everyone who loves unicorns, the speaker has now said May can’t keep flogging this dead horse. He claims it’s undemocratic to keep defiling its stinking corpse until everyone just relents and says it’s a unicorn.

What a bastard.

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.
