May to leave by autumn (unless she’s lying (which she usually is))

Theresa May saying "Would I lie?"
John Shafthauer

Theresa May has said she’ll be gone by autumn. She’s said other things in the past. Guess how many she stuck to?

If you guessed ‘0’, you may have won a prize. Well done. According to our honest PM, that puts you in line for a £1m payout.

Broken promises

May has frequently failed to live up to her word. She’s previously promised to:

  • Be a good prime minister.
  • Have the first clue what she’s doing.
  • Do a Brexit.
  • Not hold an election.
  • Win an election.
  • Somehow cobble together a government despite losing her majority.
  • Eat chips like a human being.

To be fair, she has kept some promises. Like all Tories, she’s upheld the party’s dedication towards:

  • Fucking the poor.
  • Fucking the marginalised.
  • Fucking everyone on less than £100k per annum.

She also followed in the proud Tory tradition of giving ministerial positions to the people least capable of fulfilling them.

Let her be clear

May’s promise tells us one thing: she definitely won’t be going in autumn. She might get booted out before then, or she might leave in winter. Leaving on time just isn’t on the cards.

Unless of course hell freezes over. Which it might, given the Tories’ continued fucking of the environment. Another right-wing promise they’ve kept.

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?
