England cricket team apologise for giving Theresa May an excuse to dance again
On 14 July, the England team won the Cricket World Cup. Joy soon turned to dread, repulsion, and horror, however, as the victory prompted Theresa May to once more do the dance.

When she arrived at the cricket match, she told one journalist:
I became prime minister to destroy working-class communities and win sports tournaments, and I’m all out of working-class communities.
Upon victory, she launched into the dance that’s alternatively known as the ‘Maybot’ and the ‘Oh God, Please Make it Stop’. One terrified onlooker said:
She has so many sharp angles. When I looked up and saw it, I thought someone had tipped a draw of cutlery out over my head.
May first unveiled the May dance at the Tory conference. Appearing on a stage cast from the compressed ashes of all the human beings she’s destroyed, May proceeded to jive like a praying mantis on the mass grave.
The England cricket team has since issued an apology.
Look, we really are very, very sorry. We thought she only danced when confronted with people who have less money than her; we didn’t realise a happy event might set her off too.
End of Mays
May’s legacy is pretty much secure at this point; she is, without doubt, one of the most useless prime ministers we’ve ever had. It seems like she’s trying to distract from that by making herself ‘the PM who did that awkward/nauseating dance’. She’ll fail to distract most people because of the aforementioned uselessness.

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.
