What we’ve got in 10 Downing Street is a Tory infestation – and it’s bad.

It’s a Theresa May.

She’s a tricky little critter. Once she starts squatting in a seat of power, she’ll cling like a leech.

We won’t shift her with a single strategy.

So it’s a good thing we have several.

The first is simple: Frontal attack.

The Windrush Scandal isn’t going away, and may yet prove to be Mrs May’s downfall.

We all know she is responsible for this abominable attack on citizens of the United Kingdom – and now, thanks to a newspaper run by her former cabinet colleague George Osborne, we all know she is also responsible for denying entry visas into the country for doctors who could have satisfied some of the demand for medical expertise in the National Health Service.

As one Twitter commentator pointed out, this is not an accident – it is a feature of Mrs May’s “hostile environment” policy. She intended it to have this effect.

Not only was she attacking elderly Windrush immigrants and their families; she was also attacking the sick. How perverted.

And she has no shame about it. When asked to comment yesterday, a Downing Street spokesperson refused to deny the factual accuracy of the story.

Not only that, but Mrs May’s role in the Windrush affair, going all the way back to 2010, when she first entered government as Home Secretary, may be revealed to the public in all its sleazy details if a Labour strategy comes to fruition today (May 2).

The main Opposition party plans to use the same procedure it employed to reveal the truth about David Davis’s Brexit impact studies, to force the government to publish all papers and emails it holds that relate to the Windrush scandal in any way.

It’s called a Motion of Return, it will be carried out during an Opposition Day debate, and it puts the Tories in an impossible situation.

Since the general election last June, Conservatives have been told not to vote on Opposition Day motions, leading to Labour victories on several occasions (not least that involving the Brexit studies).

If they follow this policy, the motion will be passed and the government will be compelled to publish papers that could be damning for the prime minister.

But if they don’t – if they turn up to vote against the motion – the result will be just as bad because we’ll all have just one question on our minds:

If this matter is serious enough to justify the Conservatives breaking a convention they worked hard to justify at the end of last year, what does Mrs May have to hide?

At the same time: Backstabbing

We let Mrs May’s fellow Tories remove her.

Joe Murphy, political editor of the Evening Standard, reveals some interesting polling information:

Obviously, he’s writing from a Tory perspective.

The operative part – for us – is the claim that the London results will decide whether enough Tory MPs decide to send the long-awaited letter to the chairman of their backbench 1922 Committee, demanding a change of leader.

Londoners have plenty of reasons to prove the Standard‘s poll wrong: Windrush, Grenfell Tower, cuts to services, racism… the list is enormous.

If they remember those reasons – and act on them – then Conservative MPs will remove Mrs May for us.

This implies: Electoral defeat.

The strongest argument against Mrs May’s continued tenure as prime minister is public opinion.

And there’s nothing wrong with pointing out that Tory candidates – especially this time around – are appallingly bad.

Consider this one:

And this one:

This one:

This one:

And this one:

There are loads of them:

Literally, loads:

Potential Conservative voters everywhere should be reassured of the idiocy of the party’s candidates if they see this:

Here’s some information about the candidate who put out the shameful leaflet above:

Finally, spot the problem with this:

“Three lines of text about what issues/projects/policies you’ve already done or are doing or will be doing in your ward/area”?

That’s what you get when you have to pay people to check your copy; they simply don’t care enough.

Finally: Humour.

Sajid Javid’s ridiculous attempt at “power posing” has been comedy gold – proving that nothing can ruin political chances quite like the power of ridicule.

Consider these fine examples:

If you like them, don’t keep them to yourself. Broadcast them to everyone you think will enjoy them.

These are the ways to unglue Theresa May from office.

Don’t think of it as politics.

It’s pest control.
