Sweet Jessica Christ, my disdain for Theresa May truly knows no bounds.
So the short version here: After spending the entire campaign pushing the lines that Jeremy Corbyn’s policy proposals are unaffordable (the phrase ‘magic money tree’ was mentioned just enough times to make me want to take an axe to whoever says it) and that he’d lead a ‘coalition of chaos’ if elected, here is where we currently stand in terms of our government post-election:
Theresa May lost her party’s majority and is clinging onto power with a weakened minority by signing a confidence and supply agreement with the bigoted regressive fucks known as the DUP. And to secure this, she made a deal with them for £1 billion.
That’s not a typo.
Theresa May, Mrs. Strong and Stable, is propping up her minority government with a backwater party from Northern Ireland and having the taxpayers pay £1 billion for the privilege of this ‘government’ existing.
Labour’s policies to benefit actual people are unaffordable claptrap but £1 billion to prop up a Tory minority government? No problem mate, cash or cheque?
I fucking hate these arseholes with the fiery intensity of a thousand suns.
