THERESA May has promised to be a steady hand on the tiller before fucking up hugely on her first day in charge.
The new prime minister’s promises to guide Britain sternly and sensibly were cautiously believed for up to five hours before the appointment of Boris Johnson as foreign secretary, setting a new record in losing the nation’s trust.
Political commentator Julian Cook said: “I was literally writing the last sentence of a piece about how we’d seen the end of an era of rash political gambles when May announced that she had shat the national bed.
“Boris Johnson, Foreign Secretary is the title of a lottery-funded British straight-to-streaming sex comedy, not an actual political decision a rational person could make.
“May has set out her stall by fucking up with hugely impressive alacrity and in a manner that leaves the electorate in absolutely no doubt that this is the first of many ruinous misjudgments on her part.
“If she can keep this up she’s in with a chance of being the most hapless imbecile we’ve had leading the country since, well, David Cameron, I suppose..
“To think, just yesterday afternoon we all thought she was ruthlessly efficient. Seems like years.”
