Tories all for the army targeting the leader of the opposition, actually

When footage leaked of soldiers firing shots at Jeremy Corbyn’s image, many people thought:

Well, this was expected. The Tories and the gutter press will have to reel it in a bit now. You can’t have the army targeting the leader of the opposition for flip’s sake.

These expectations ended up being optimistic. As one unnamed Tory said:

Why would we stop calling him a terrorist-loving, hard-Marxist cyber prick now the smears are showing results?

And as other senior Tories said:

Pheasant coup 

The unnamed Tory from earlier explained:

Look – I don’t know what the confusion is. If Labour gets into power, it would be really great for us if the army led some sort of coup. I’d settle for Tommy Robinson and some lads he rounded up at the park, to be honest. What aren’t you getting? Drumming up violent hatred against our opponents works in our favour; it’s really quite simple – I don’t know why you look surprised.

Smears for fears

Another anonymous Tory told us:

I overheard Jeremy Corbyn in the toilets once speaking in a Russian accent. As I watched, he split in half and a series of smaller Jeremy Corbyns came out. He can speak to bears too. Is that something Russians can do? Well he can anyway. Be sure to tell everyone you know in the army.

According to another source, the government is going to label Corbyn’s allotment group a terrorist organisation.

It’s almost like the Tories worry they won’t be in power much longer.

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?
