Theresa May is the UK’s most notorious defrauder of centrists. Although she’s always loved a bit of it, she’s been defrauding the political centre on a grand scale since 2016. Despite that, no one at the Observer recognised her when she walked into their offices:

Serious fraud

The geniuses at the Observer didn’t just give May a column – they put her on the front page:

According to a cleaner at the Observer offices:

I was getting on with my job when I saw that famous political conwoman walk in. I went up to the paper’s editor and said, ‘That’s her – that’s the woman who conned all them voters into thinking she was the moderate option!’

I had a picture and everything, but this editor says, ‘Don’t be silly. This conwoman you’re showing me isn’t wearing a hat, and the person we’re about to interview clearly is.’

For the grifters

Once in the Observer offices, May penned an article that promised:

  • The country is only 45 minutes away from centrism!
  • The PM will discover who caused the hostile environment and give them a jolly good talking to!
  • A number of new homes will be built that may contain some of the same numbers as the amount of houses actually needed!

Despite this obvious embarrassment, the Observer has stood by their ‘journalism’. This was doubly embarrassing, as May had swiped their trousers – leaving them standing there with their underpants on show.
