THERESA May has saved Britain once again by acting decisively to rescue the country from the threatened catastrophe of firefighters being paid more.
The lionhearted prime minister defied the Labour opposition, public sentiment and even turncoats within her own party to stop the one per cent pay freeze which stands between the UK and utter ruin being smashed to smithereens.
A relieved Nathan Muir, from Hitchin, said: “Thank God. Thank God there are still some heroes.
“This country was in real danger of nurses, police, soldiers, firefighters and even teachers receiving pay rises in line with inflation. I don’t think people realised how close we came.
“But Theresa, like St George facing the dragon, like Churchill at Dunkirk, never wavered. She knew in her heart what was right and, though she stared into the jaws of disaster, she did not give an inch.
“She knew that, especially after the £1.5 billion granted to Northern Ireland, this was a price Britain could not afford to pay. And she won, and saved us all.”
A modest May said: “There’s no need to thank me. Though a parade would be nice.”
