If there are two things people in Britain love, it’s:
- Festering piles of stinking rubbish.
- Hideous, disease-ridden rats.
Well good news, people of Britain! You keep voting for the austerity party, and now we’re getting monthly rubbish collections!
Let them eat shit!
Of course, monthly collections aren’t bad news for everyone. It’s great for rats, flies, and pigeons. The Tory minister for desperately trying to cling to power said this:
Some people say that 16-year-olds should be able to vote. We in the Tory Party say, ‘why not rats’? I’ve done many things more sickening than a rat – should I not have a right to vote? It’s a real injustice that needs solving.
Obviously rats can’t scurry into polling booths and vote. The Tories propose that any rat which accepts their rubbish probably supports the Tory Party, though. They also pointed out rats are naturally in line with Tories, as both rely on the output of other people to sustain their grimy lifestyles.
Not every council implementing monthly collections will be Conservative, but every one will be doing so because of Tory austerity.
This is what David Cameron meant when he planned for us to ‘all be in it together’. A country that stinks and has a permanent cloud of flies hanging over it.

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?
