It’s easy to grow jaded with a job when you’ve been doing it for too long. Theresa May had grown jaded with Prime Minister’s Questions, but now she’s returned with a renewed vigour for treating us all like arseholes.
ANSWER THE FUCKING QUESTION
When May first became PM, she avoided answering questions with vim and delight. Jeremy Corbyn would ask her something, and she’d say:
Let me be clear –
and then proceed to not answer the question. By June this year, she was clearly exhausted. When asked something, she’d say:
Let me be clear –
and then proceed to not answer the question. Which was almost identical to before, but she sounded a bit more tired.
On Wednesday 5 September, Corbyn asked May a series of questions. The first inquired how many companies had to leave the UK before she got a Brexit plan together, to which May replied:
Sorry, what was that? I couldn’t hear the question over the sound of your beard!
He also asked if the NHS would be prepared for no-deal Brexit. May responded:
It’s funny you should mention doctors, because I know someone who needs a beard-ectomy!
Corbyn finally asked what was wrong with May that she was like this, at which the PM shouted:
Beard! Beard! He has a beard!
Twenty first century politics
Some commentators felt that May put in a strong performance. These people are paid to think things like that, for some reason.
Welcome back to the new season of British politics.

We’re a thorn in the side of the establishment, but we can’t do it without your help
Your fight is our fight. But as many of you will know, speaking truth to power has never been easy, especially for a small, independent media outlet such as the Canary. We have weathered many attempts to silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media. Now more than ever, we need your support.
We don’t have fancy offices, and our entire staff works remotely. Almost all of our income is spent on paying the people who make the Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our team and enables us to continue to do what we do: disrupt power, and amplify people.
But we can’t do this without you. So please, if you appreciate our work, can you help us continue the fight?
