Whew! In Nigeria, we’ll say the polity is heating up. It sure is, if renowned author and screen writer of the fabulous Harry Potter series unfollows you on Twitter. And then calls you out.
First, a little backstory. Prime Minister of Britain Theresa May called for snap elections 3 years early and lost. The purpose of moving the elections forward was so her party, the snap elections 3 years early and lost. The purpose of moving the elections forward was so her party, the Conservatives, could gain controlling seats in Parliament in order to obtain the mandate to negotiate Britains disengagement from the European union.
However, her gamble failed. Incredibly so. And the world laughed. And laughed. And laughed.
Seeing Theresa May accidentally throw away 4 guaranteed years in high office, makes me feel better about the time I lost an Amazon giftcard

But it didn’t end with laughter, apparently. Someone took it even further by calling May a whore. Before we tap into our lesser selves and hit ‘rant’, we’ll let J.K Rowlings do the job for us.
Just unfollowed a man whom I thought was smart and funny, because he called Theresa May a whore. 1/14
