Theresa May has pledged to help Conservative MPs who lost their seat as a result of their disastrous election campaign, many of whom are said to now be in ‘financial difficulties’.

May reportedly made the announcement yesterday during a meeting of the 1922 Committee – the Conservative Private Members’ Committee.

She also told the committee that:

I got us into this mess and I’m going to get us out of it

Twitter exploded upon hearing of May’s sympathies for the freshly culled Tory MPs — whether or not anybody has brought out their miniature violin remains, as yet, unconfirmed.

Whilst it is funny to imagine ex-Tory MPs at the front of the dole queue and forced into accepting a zero hours contract as a Deliveroo driver to pay the bills, May is pretty much telling the losing Tory candidates that they will simply be given a cushy job somewhere else within the Tory Party.

However, whatever menial jobs she is offering them will not be enough to compensate for the Tories’ humiliating loss.

But don’t laugh too much. These clods have their finger on the nuclear button. Given the Tory omnishambles, it’s not hard to imagine they could send us all into a nuclear winter – if not through their warlike minds, then just by accidentally pushing the nuclear button.

That’s the worst thing about Tory incompetence, it’s mixed with real power. A dangerous combination.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
