If you ever needed any more proof that this Tory government really are entirely detached and utterly uncaring to the real-world carnage their policies are causing for ordinary people, last night’s sickening Spectator Awards – an event where various mainly Tory politicians, accompanied by their mates in the media, literally laughed and joked about their role in destroying the country – will surely leave you shaking your head in absolute disgust.

The Spectator Awards is an annual event hosted by the hard-right Spectator Magazine which brings together politicians and journalists from across the country to essentially celebrate their own collective incompetence – and last night’s event was almost certainly the most repulsive there’s ever been.

As one Twitter user succinctly put it:

If you want to see the worst people in the world honouring the worst people in the world while the worst people in the world write about it, check out the hashtag.”

The ‘highlight’ of last night’s event was the “Cabinet Resignation of the Year” award, which was jointly presented to former Brexit Secretaries Dominic Raab and David Davis, for their *hilarious* roles in completely cocking up Britain’s Brexit negotiations:

Unsurprisingly, many on Twitter didn’t share the same oblivious jollity as the Sun’s Political Editor:

Yes, whilst ordinary people suffer the devastating consequences of the Tories’ collective incompetence, the government, joined by their mates in the media, literally just proved they think it’s all one big joke.

However, thankfully, some politicians did have the sense not to attend.

Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell, was apparently awarded the title of “Politician of the Year” for the job of “selling Corbynism to the country“.

However, in true-Labour style, McDonnell rightly saw sense and refused to attend the repulsive event to collect it:

At least Britain has a few politicians left with morals, eh. Just a shame they’re not running the country. Yet.

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.
