The M6 Was Blocked By A Huge Metaphor When The Tory 'Strong and Stable' Election Van Blew Over

A sign of Biblical proportions? The internet thought so

Before we start, no-one was hurt by the following accident. Perhaps part from Theresa May's ego, but we're sure she has thick enough skin to deal with this.

Yesterday a van which displayed the words 'For the best Brexit deal vote Conservative on 8th June' was buffered on the winds of the elections and overturned on the M6.

This led to a minor delay on the motorway and a major excersise in Twitter hysteria.

According to the Independent a Cheshire Police spokesperson said:

At 10.10am this morning police received a report of an overturned van on the Thelwall viaduct M6 northbound. An advertising van had overturned as it crossed the viaduct blocking a lane. No one appears to have been injured. There is disruption to traffic in the area and it is advised to use alternative routes until the carriageway is clear.

Theresa May has been somewhat mocked for overusing the term 'Strong and Stable' on her election trail.

One of the Conservative Prime Minister's main points has been that she is the strongest candidate to negotiate Britain's divorce from the EU, as well as emphasising the UK should stay under her leadership to be stable during this period of transition.

She has defended her use of the term on the Andrew Marr show because of the monumental changes the country is undergoing.

Tomorrow we will be finding out whether this van was an omen for the Conservative party. Weak and wobbly or strong and stable? It's the voters who are going to decide.
