Following weeks of Tory turmoil in which two Cabinet Ministers were forced to resign, the Prime Minister – in her uniquely questionable wisdom – has apparently decided that everything has become a little bit too much for her.

May seemingly needed some time out from the cut and thrust of leading her coalition of chaos…

Yes, mere hours after Priti Patel was forced to resign, Theresa May decided to treat herself to a banquet with her fellow super-rich pals.

The lavish event was in celebration of the career of none other than the Tories’ Minister For Propaganda: The Daily Mail’s infamous Editor, Paul Dacre.

Political journalist Robert Peston tweeted last night that:

No doubt one of the many topics being discussed was the current “Paradise Papers’ tax avoidance scandal.

I mean, who should know more about tax avoidance than a roomful of Tories and Daily Mail fat cats?

One should imagine they had a hell of a lot to discuss.

Yes, literally hours after Patel’s scandalous resignation, and after a week of utter chaos inside Westminster, Theresa May decided the best use of her time was to be wined and dined at a super-posh event accompanied by a vast array of the countries’ biggest and dimmest cronies from the political and media establishment.

It really says it all about the Tories and the Daily Mail – they both have absolutely no regard for the state of the country – as long as they are alright, Jack.

It really is as if she’s just given up being Prime Minister and thought:

F*ck it. Things can’t exactly get any worse. I might as well take the p*ss as much as possible until the country finally gets rid of me.

We can’t bloody wait until they finally do.

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.
