Maybot malfunction: She tweets speech full of nonsense

Mad-eyed May: The Maybot is clearly malfunctioning and should be packed back in her box.

“No change there, then,” I imagine Vox Political-dom assembled is thinking in response to the headline.

Take a gander at this:

Before you even press the ‘play’ button, you can see the stupid in the text. “Labour has turned its back on investment” – what? Labour has a huge investment programme planned! The details are in the party’s 2017 election manifesto.

“Growth” – except under the Tories, economic growth has stagnated and we are well behind the other G7 countries.

“Jobs” – well, zero-hours, part-time, non-paying jobs, maybe. Labour believes that people should receive a decent wage for a decent day’s work, rather than existing on subsistence pay that subsidises fatcat executives’ bonuses (think of Carillion).

Okay, now let’s press ‘play’.

The first thing you hear Mrs May say is, “The vast majority of people in this country in employment are employed by the private sector.” Yes indeed. That has always been the case.

“But the Shadow Chancellor calls businesses ‘the real enemy’.” Justifiably. Conservative policies have made it possible for bosses to cheat workers, cutting pay by – what? – 10 per cent over the last few years while executive pay skyrocketed. And the fact that people are now so cheap has discouraged firms from investing in new equipment, leading to the so-called “productivity gap” that Chancellor Philip Hammond falsely blamed on disabled workers.

“Labour want the highest taxes in our peacetime history.” For people whose salaries are in the top five per cent in the UK – those who have profited from the exploitation of the workforce. That seems fair to This Writer.

“Labour policies would cause a run on the pound.” Whereas all Mrs May has to do is make a speech about Brexit to create the same effect.

Then she utters the line quoted in the text of the tweet, which we’ve already covered, before concluding: “A Labour Party that will always put politics before people.”

No, Theresa. That would be you and the Conservatives.

Something has certainly malfunctioned in her somewhere.

Perhaps Maybot should pack herself back in her box and return herself to her manufacturer. She is faulty goods.

    Isn’t this simply the Tories judging others by their own standards?
    A common flaw consistently demonstrated by them and their ilk !
