Many of you will have noticed that Theresa May’s speeches – when she can be bothered to turn up and make one – are peppered when the same two words, repeated over and over again: “Strong” and “stable”.
She’s trying to brainwash us!
She seems to think the British people are so easily-led that all she has to do is tell us her government has these qualities and we’ll believe her.
How mad is that? Perhaps she should see a psychiatrist.
Until Mrs May does seek medical help, we’re stuck with this never-ending mantra – possibly right up to June 8.
So let’s, for all our sakes, have a bit of fun with it.
From now on, whenever you’re watching or listening to the news, or political reporting of any kind on the TV or radio – equip yourself with your tipple of choice.
Whenever Mrs May says either “strong” or “stable” (or both together), you shout “Weak and wobbly!” Then you take a very stiff drink.
For those of you playing with alcoholic beverages: If you aren’t wobbly by the time her speech ends, the broadcaster must have edited it.
If you’re playing with non-alcoholic drinks: If you aren’t in danger of a lavatorial accident by the time her speech ends, the broadcaster must have edited it.
This is how we defeat the Tory brainwashers; not with argument – but with ridicule.
Alternatively, here’s another way of blocking out the brainwashing techniques:

WEAK & UNSTABLE, Always SCREAM back. I just can’t help it. The economy is at it WEAKEST EVER, our national DEBT is the largest ever in £BILLIONS, and it is growing every second.
“Weak and WOBBLY.”
You’re right about the economy but the debt is now in trillions.
I read it was somewhere about the 1.7 Trillion mark now – and that the tories have managed to spend more in this present term, than labour has ever done in all it’s terms!
So much for austerity making things better – although I guess it’s better for all the tory’s bank balances at least! 🙁
£2.1 trillion is the number I remember.
That depends on which scale you use but point taken. ‘Tis bad, whichever way you look at it.
As far as I can tell, she means she wants the country to smell like a horse.
Strongly like a horse!
I’m sorry, you are quite correct. And give her credit, she practices what she preaches; everything she says stinks VERY strongly like horse manure.
At least Stong and stable are not so horrendously damaging to one part of society like camerons incessant ” for hardworking people” which has damaged peoples vision of the disabled incapacitated sick and unemployed beyond repair.
Certainly. But it is a complete and utter lie. The Tories aren’t strong and they definitely aren’t stable!
Ahh, yes. The Norwegian Blue pining for the fjords.
While the country runs down the curtain and joins the choir invisible.
Someone just commented on this on my FB timeline. “Coalition of chaos” = doubles all round.
“Strong and stable government.” Did she not steal that from Call-Me-Dave, or is it just the Tory mantra? We’ve heard it all before and too often and it means nothing! Aye, “Coalition of chaos” is another expression doing the rounds. When will politicians start actually speaking an language that we, the people whom they are supposed to represent, understand… like English?
