May promises ‘opportunity for all’ (TERMS & CONDITIONS APPLY)
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.
This year, to avoid any more verbal spaghetti, she made sure to read out a lengthy ‘terms and conditions’ section.
T&Cs May apply
As she does, May promised:
Opportunity for all!
She then read out the small print of this promise at a speed which was only decipherable when slowed down six times:
The term ‘for all’ may not in fact apply to ‘all’, and inclusion in the bracket will be reliant on several factors. A person’s value will be determined by the following measures: ethnicity, age, geographical location, opinion on the comedy stylings of Jim Davidson, willingness to ignore the plight of others, ability to believe in austerity despite eight long years of failure, and a deep love for tweed.
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.
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.

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.
