Many people predicted that trying to implement Brexit would be chaos. Although WWIII hasn’t transpired, the shit has definitely hit the fan.
Chaos with Brexitland
The Tories have mishandled Brexit so gravely that even the media is questioning if the ‘strong and stable’ party is actually just a bit shit. The worst Tory of all is Theresa May – a woman we knew was terrible, but sailed into office on a raft of compliments like:
- “Safe pair of hands.”
- “Proper, grown-up politician.”
- “Unlikely to drive the country into a maelstrom of piss.”
Now May spends all day hiding around Westminster – leaping out at unsuspecting MPs and screaming:
SUPPORT MY DEAL!? SUPPORT MY DEAL!?
Her fellow Tories and DUP sidekicks can’t support her deal, though. We’ve reached a point at which their hatred of one another is outweighing their hatred of everyone else.
“I SAY WE ENACT THE WORST BREXIT POSSIBLE!” you’ll hear one of them screaming.
“I DEMAND WE GO ONE WORSE THAN THAT!” someone will reply.
“NO! YOU’RE ALL FUCKING IDIOTS! THE ONLY PLAN WORST ENOUGH IS MINE!” shrieks another.
There’s a scene at the end of Return of the Jedi when Darth Vader – following several decades of genocide and child murder – looks at Emperor Palpatine and thinks:
Fuck this – if I can’t get my own way, I’m gonna throw this cunt down a hole.
This is basically the mindset of a significant number of Tories right now. In other words, expect imminent implosion.
We need your help to keep speaking the truth
Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.
Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.
We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.
With your help we can continue:
* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
