With the Internet suffering from anger and disappointment fatigue and even the most ludicrous events such as David Cameron passing himself off as a successful Prime Minister going largely unnoticed. The allegation that Theresa May’s husband is the majority shareholder of The Daily Mash has rocked Westminster.

With page clicks on The Daily Mash and hatred of The Tories running at barely a trickle Theresa May had to act and appointed Boris Johnson Foreign Secretary in a move to boost click throughs and the sale ironic t-shirts.

Sales of ironic mugs had fallen to single figures and The Daily Mash are reportedly sitting on as many as 18,000 ‘Jez You Can’ t-shirts. There is no hope to sell the 40,000 ‘Things Can Only Get Better’ Neil Kinnock mouse mats.
