First we were told not to trust Jeremy Corbyn because of his links with the IRA. Before prime minister Theresa May goes into government with the DUP, a party with links with Loyalist paramilitaries in Northern Ireland.
Then we’re told not to trust Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party because it would potentially foist a coalition of chaos on the UK. Before May controversially seeks a coalition with a party of homophobes and climate change deniers, just to save her own sorry arse.
And then we’re told to trust Theresa May’s ‘strong and stable’ leadership. Before she betrays the personality of a robotic control freak who has precious little negotiating ability or flexibility.
So I like to make sense of it all by seeing Theresa May’s pitch that the naughtiest thing she’s ever done is run through fields of wheat as a cover … the cover for a closet Sex Pistols fan who planned all along to bring anarchy to the UK. Hence the t-shirt.
