While Brexit might mean no more EU money for British space companies, and while Donald Trump might be intent on declaring World War III on North Korea, in their parochial manner, British satirists had a bigger fish to fry. The UK Prime Minister, Theresa May is suspected by many on the liberal side of politics as being part of an “Evil Empire”, mainly over her long term support for state spying, and so jesters on the internet were quick to make fun of the UK Prime Minister’s decision to call a snap general election, especially over the language she chose.
While the governing Conservative Party is not exactly popular given their cuts to welfare and services, and increases in student loans, they are still very likely to be returned with an increased majority, especially given the overly-left-too-pacifist stance of the opposition leader of the Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn.
Others are however looking for a better alternative. Some have suggested Larry the Cat – currently already in occupancy in No 10 – should really be the next UK Prime Minister. Mind you, the word is that he is easily bribed and will change his policy just for a saucer of milk. And his work rate is not too good either…totally outperformed as a mouser by his competitor at the Foreign Office, Palmerston the Cat.
Ah well, there is always the Liberal Democrats. They are expected to do well. Apart from having a strong appeal to “remoaners” due to their Pro-EU credentials, Brexiteer voters who don’t like the Conservative or Labour parties might thing the Lib Dems are now safe to vote for given that the UK is leaving European Union anyway.
And if the Lib Dems do smash the place up a bit, they are such nice people that they always offer to pay for the damage afterwards.
