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:
The geniuses at the Observer didn’t just give May a column – they put her on the front page:
Christ this is embarrassing. The PM giving a press release comment piece (which is basically her conference speech) makes the Observer’s front page. Look like plonkers. pic.twitter.com/2bJs85oSqm

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.

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.
