Change UK vetting process fails to spot Nazi crocodile

A Nazi crocodile saying 'Vote CHUK in the European Elections"

Change UK (CHUK) is having a bit of a shitemare when it comes to picking candidates for the European elections:

 

Somehow, this crisis has worsened. It turns out its latest pick is a paid-up member of the British Nazi Party. He’s also – somewhat inexplicably – a crocodile.

Oh, snap

A spokesperson from CHUK said:

We have a very serious vetting process, actually. First we ask people if they’re available at the end of May. Then we ask how highly they rate capitalism on a scale of ‘chill’ to ‘super chill’. In the future, we’ll also be asking candidates if they’re crocodiles.

A journalist wondered if there’d also be some sort of screening for bigotry. The spokesperson huffed:

Look, we stand against bigotry in all its forms. However, if people want to indulge in racism in the privacy of a 2016 Twitter message, who are we to criticise?

CHUK swapped this gentleman out for a new spokesperson at this point. His replacement said:

Having discussed his past comments, my predecessor has agreed to step down. Change UK completely opposes bigots. In fact, that’s all we’re doing right now. They seem to have joined our party en masse for some reason.

Jokes

Look – obviously this story is a big joke. The idea that the media would give serious coverage to these scandalous candidates is laughable. Ha ha ha.

And by the way, that crocodile ate Mike Gapes. Tragic. Especially for CHUK, as it means the Marxists got it right – capitalism really will eat itself.

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?
