Frankie Boyle absolutely destroyed Theresa May in a savage monologue

Theresa May hasn't had the best month.

Firstly, she lost the Conservatives majority in the House of Commons, forcing her into a questionable coalition with the DUP which is still yet to be finalised.

Then her response to the Grenfell tower tragedy was branded as inhumane.

Everyone has had something to say about her position and now Frankie Boyle has thrown his hat into the ring.

The foulmouthed Scottish comedian, who doesn't shy away from controversy, delivered a brutal assessment of May's precarious leadership on his BBC 2 show, New World Order.

He didn't pull any punches in a clip surprisingly devoid of swear words - at least until the very end.

Before I go, I’d like to leave you with this thought.

Earlier this month, something extraordinary happened. A 31-year-old climber, Alex Honnold, completed a 3,000ft rope-free ascent of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park.

Impressed as I am by his almost super-human tenacity, Honnold’s grip on that sheer Californian granite is as nothing, nothing, compared to Theresa May’s determination to cling on to power.

She has almost no footholds left, only a few weirdly shaped crags of the DUP to claw at with her feverish fingertips.

A thousand feet from the ground, with no safety net. No route, up or down. Just a howling gale of criticism buffeting her from all directions – and yet, she hangs on.


It's safe to say that Boyle isn't a fan of the Prime Minister and his stance won a few supporters on Twitter.
