Fears for drinking water as Johnson ‘guarantees’ we’ll have drinking water

Boris Johnson saying: "When have I not lived up to my word?"

Boris Johnson has guaranteed that despite his plans for a hard/moronic Brexit, there will at least be drinking water:

 

As people in Britain are familiar with Johnson, they’ve largely all come to the same conclusion:

THERE WON’T BE ANY DRINKING WATER COME 1 NOVEMBER.

Panic

Within 27 minutes of Johnson’s statement, the entire UK had sold out of bottled water. Trying to downplay the event, Johnson said:

Truly we live in a golden age of retail. I expect things will only improve under my stewardship.

This caused shares to fall in pretty much every retail operation in the UK. Pleading with the Tory members, a spokesperson from the shop workers union said:

Why are you doing this? It’s like he had the Midas touch, but instead of gold, everything he touches turns into horseshit.

Pestilence

Johnson once more intervened – saying:

I dispute that I regurgitate manure, but while we’re on the subject, I’d like to guarantee that farmers are about to see their biggest boom since 1845.

When it was pointed out that 1845 was the year of the English-perpetrated ‘potato famine‘, Johnson laughed and said:

Oh really? I just picked a year at random. It’s funny how I’m always, always wrong about everything, don’t you think?

As you can imagine, because Johnson described this fact as “funny”, nobody else was laughing.

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?
