Updated: Theresa May forges a new career in post-Brexit Britain: Flogging tea towels and mugs
Theresa May, a woman who should be busy sorting out the mess that is her “red, white and blue Brexit”, is in Saudi Arabia insulting the locals and refusing to wear a headscarf. She’s also been meddling in the affairs of the National Trust, moaning about Easter eggs and on Tuesday night an email pinged into our inbox from her “nattering” registered treasurer and director general of the Conservative Party, Alan Mabbutt.
In it, hapless Mr Mabbutt – a man once forced to apologise for sending dodgy emails – emphasised he has an OBE and asked: “My ‘Plan For Britain’ mug and tea towel have just arrived, have you ordered yours yet?” He then shamelessly urged supporters to donate £35 to get these limited edition items also and ridiculously claimed “supplies are running low”.
Just as Lloyds of London plans to relocate much of their operations to Brussels and Bentley talk of escaping tariffs by moving to mainland Europe, plainly Mabbutt and May think tea towels and coffee cups are our future. God help once Great Britain.
As an aside to your story, she’s quite right to get p*ssed off at Cadbury’s dropping the word Easter from Easter Egg Hunt. Political correctness gone doolally, especially since the word Easter is derived from a Germanic goddess, Eostre. And don’t get me started about BCE replacing BC.
Oh dear, am I starting to ramble here?
Does this mean a new deal with the Saudis for mugs and tea towels? One for Donald too? I can see Mrs May knows how to MAKE BRITAIN GREAT.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That’s getting as bad as Rod.
I think you have replaced Rod as the ST bore.
The witless should leave wit to the witty.
Matthew, The Saudi’s are a disgusting bunch of primitives. The fat old ‘king’ spends billions indulging his vile family yet does nothing to assist refugees from violence spawned by his country’s evil religious maniacs. Mrs May has shot up in my estimation for ‘insulting the disgusting and barbaric pseudo religion of natives’.
Time you realised that the EU is imminent danger of collapse. Marine Le Pen has the support of millions of French people, all of whom, one assumes, agree with her policy of leaving the EU. She may not win but her success demonstrates that the population of a one the founding partners of the EU are now tired of it.
