Despite all evidence to the contrary, Boris Johnson allegedly wants to keep the United Kingdom together. The problem?
Well – it turns out much of the kingdom is united in its dislike of him.
Get tae fuck
An Irishman, a Scotsman, and a Welshman walked into the Off The Perch offices. The first one told us:
It’s pretty obvious that the Brexiteers forgot Northern Ireland existed before the referendum. It’s pretty obvious they don’t care what happens to us now they’ve remembered. As Johnson hired his new cabinet by using a sign of himself with the message ‘you must be this stupid to serve’, I can’t see things getting any better.
The Scotsman said:
When I ask myself if I want to be ruled by a bunch of vindictive English aristocrats, the answer is no. When I ask if I want to be ruled by the biggest bawbags of the bunch, the answer is also no. In other words, I’ll be voting yes in the next referendum.
The Welshman said:
We’re not in the news as much, but we’re also unhappy with the shire’s choice of prime minister.
It’s not just Johnson letting the side down. It’s also the crack team Johnson put together, with an emphasis on crack:
Tories on #Scotland and which Raab regards as an English “region”.
If you still think this lot are competent or give a shit about anyone but themselves, or staying in power, then frankly, I don’t know what planet you’re on. pic.twitter.com/6rYv1uHqrq

Will this lead to the break-up of the UK? You’d think so. If only because Johnson said it won’t.
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.
