At the Conservative Party Conference last week, Theresa May walked on stage doing the dance moves that made her famous during her trip to Africa.
She walked onto the stage to “Dancing Queen,” and while the media mocked her, and the Brexiteers laughed, I thought it was pretty clever.
You can’t be mocked if you’re making fun of yourself! It made me want to like the Prime Minister again, but as soon as she finished her awkward, robotic dancing, I remember just how terrible she’s been on Brexit.
And on the 9th October, during a speech in Brussels, Jean-Claude Druncker (Sorry, Juncker…) did a little shimmy on the stage. His arms were spaced out in the same robotic way as Theresa’s, and he had a big grin on his face as he did it. He looked like your dad when he’s drunk on the dance floor at a Christening.
Juncker knew exactly what he was doing – it was yet another dig at our Prime Minister.
We’re allowed to do it, but I’ll be damned if we let Eurocrats get away with it, too.
Amazingly, though – the European Commission claims he wasn’t mocking Mrs. May at all. The Commission’s chief spokesman, Margaritis Schinas, says that Juncker’s dance was “not directed at anyone” and was simply an “improvisation.”
This reeks to me as an authoritarian institution desperately trying to defend the honour of its drunk leader. It’s also disturbing how they’re willing to lie so easily.
This is 1984 in 2018. Left is right, up is down, right is wrong, and Juncker’s dancing isn’t mocking Theresa May. Ok…
