Theresa May has been criticised for her incompetence, her bland authoritarianism, and her dedication to invasive surveillance. Now, people are also criticising her inability to make a decision. And the combination of the source and a catchy name means this view of her may be about to go mainstream. That source is a front cover of The Economist, which brands her:

Theresa Maybe

Of course, the idea that the Prime Minister has avoided doing very much isn’t new information to people who actually pay attention.


Some people used the name as an excuse to make jokes.

On a serious note

Not everyone made a joke out of it, and nor should they. This person is running the country. The decisions she makes affect everyone.

Silver lining

Some even reasoned May wasn’t that bad, given her competition. Although, this is definitely damning with faint praise.

And this tweet may even be a little bit supportive. I think?

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?
