We are now mere hours away from the government triggering Article 50. Which is one of the reasons why the Tory party is turning on itself like a rabid dog barking at its own arsehole. Primarily because the party still hasn’t come up with a plan. Secondly because they haven’t even planned whose job it was to plan-out a plan. And thirdly because the only thing they hate more than everyone else is each other.
We spoke to Professor Karen Whoopsie about the matter. Whoopsie being the leading expert on history’s greatest f*ck-ups:
They’re scrabbling around now, trying to work out who to blame. Not because they failed to come up with a good plan, but because they failed to even envision one that wasn’t at least 70% terrible.
When Philip Hammond announced plans to raise national insurance contributions for self-employed people, there was OUTRAGE. Which is often the case when the Tories announce a new policy. But that past outrage was only displayed by millions of affected humans. Whereas this outrage was coming from the only true source of concern for politicians. And that’s sheets of paper with words written on them. Words which are owned by crooked, billionaire media-toads, and written by the sort of people who largely don’t mind working for such crooks.
Sorry, Mr Murdoch
Philip Hammond made the mistake of thinking that, because the right-wing media detest Labour, that means they must like him. But in reality, the only things they like are:
Getting their own way.

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.
