Poetic justice: Theresa May mocked for old Home Office Valentine’s Day tweet

Poetic justice: Theresa May mocked for old Home Office Valentine’s Day tweet
A somewhat threatening Home Office tweet from 2013 has resurfaced right as former home secretary and current Prime Minister Theresa May faces the prospect of a Valentine’s Day massacre in parliament.

As the British government is set to debate yet another iteration of May’s draft Brexit deal, which many expect to be defeated, online commentators saw fit to mark the occasion by dredging up a tweet from the PM’s time as home secretary back in 2013.

As the government struggles to craft a deal, much to the chagrin of the public, wistful mockery has become a favorite British pastime. The latest reaction to the six-year-old tweet even had many trying their hand at poetry to add a bit of creative flair to proceedings.
