Theresa May is a contender for the Iron Throne, claims George RR Martin

George RR Martin has announced that Theresa May will be included as a character in the next instalment of his ‘Game of Thrones’ series.

In an interview, he said, “May’s hatred of poor people is so violently poetic, she simply belongs in my books.”

He went on to compare May to one of his most infamous characters, Cersei Lannister.

He explained, “In my books, Cersei has at least some human qualities. She loves her children and her brother; this is something that makes her almost tolerable.

“Whereas Theresa May has none of these qualities. She is seemingly soulless. She will make an excellent addition to the series and a strong contender for the iron throne.”

Martin’s books are often criticised for being too violent. However, critics of the books are hailing the idea of including May as a character, a step too far.

One critic, Simon Williams, told us, “Theresa May is too hateful even for Game of Thrones.

“I would rather see more horrific rape and torture scenes than have to read about that evil, heartless harpy.”

The TV series has recently taken an interesting turn with a lot of females vying for the throne. TV executives believe adding May would boost the viewer ratings.

One executive said, “I can only imagine how high our ratings will be when we finally air the episode in which May gets her skull crushed by the Mountain. That is something we all want to see.”
