Intergalactic space slug Jabba the C*nt will visit the UK in June. The slimy invertebrate expects our dignitaries to show him the works. Golden bikinis, in other words. But some politicians refuse to dance down his greasy pole. Jeremy Corbyn is among them.
Jabba is known for many things. They include:
- His fondness for the dark side.
- Employing a ragtag bunch of horror-creeps.
- Still not building that wall.
Some called Corbyn a hypocrite. After all, the Labour leader has spoken to several other space monsters. Corbyn himself replied:
Theresa May has remained silent on the matter. She would. The local elections are coming up, and her strategy is to hope people forget she exists.
Reports have come in that she’s been measured for a golden swimsuit. One aide told us:
She’s not in a position to tell Jabba no. She’s not in a position to tell anyone no. I’m not even sure if she’s PM anymore. She’s basically just a protocol droid, but without the humanity.
Most people can see the difference between discussing state matters with Jabba and doing a lapdance in his honour. The tabloids can’t:
Then again, their editors aren’t technically ‘people’. As far as we can tell, they’re the aliens from the trash compactor. Shit-eating garbage monsters, in other words.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
