Theresa May, anarchist

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.

Peter a journalist with 30 years experience of freelance writing, UK national newspaper and magazine production roles, and business development. In 2007, he developed and launched a mainstream-style green consumer magazine in the UK, called GreenerLiving, as a means of promoting sustainable change ‘within the system’. GreenerLiving closed during the post-crash recession, but Peter went on to become managing editor of the international ethical business title, Ethical Performance. However, Peter felt that the CSR sector has not succeeded in changing corporate priorities anywhere near fast enough, and so I decided to leave the treadmill of corporate employment and debt accumulation to focus on my own projects. Now poorer but a billion million times happier, he writes on political, economic and social issues – usually seriously, but sometimes as satire. He's currently writing Psychopath Economics, a book about the logic of social and economic power, belief systems, and the rise and fall of societies. Peter is convinced that ordinary people must educate themselves and exercise their economic leverage if we are to avoid social and environmental destruction.
