As a result of being completely unable to do a Brexit, Theresa May has had to call some proper people in. This irritated members of her own party. Largely as they suspect Corbyn and Co. might actually be telling the truth with that ‘for the many, not the few’ stuff.

For the who now? 

One senior Tory told us:

Well obviously you claim to have the nation’s best interests at heart. That doesn’t mean you actually deliver, though. We’ve never delivered, and that didn’t stop people voting for us.

Another said:

I’d rather bring this country to its knees with Hard Brexit than consider not bringing it to its knees with austerity!

Boris Johnson added:

This is a disgrace – one that I can use to make May step down. So yeah – I’m all for it if I’m honest, which I never am.

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.

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content.

* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
