Brexit going as well as expected

Theresa May in front of several explosions

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:


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.


The fall

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 ...

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?
