Theresa May’s speech is the mouse dropping on the dog turd that is the Conservative Party Conference. In previous years, she’s forgotten her words, slandered the Scout Association, and accidentally declared war on Norway.

A person’s worth will see points deducted for: protesting, complaining, looking like the sort of person who does either, speaking out against power, reading news sources that aren’t owned by billionaires, or becoming sick/disabled/pregnant.

Disasterclass

Towards the end of her speech, May was speaking so fast that no one has been able to decipher it – even when slowed down. It turns out there are so many people excluded by Tory policy that a forty minute speech isn’t enough to name them all.
