It’s official. Liz Truss is going to be our new prime minister and the almighty leader of the Tories. And, in good and proper fashion, the internet has *some thoughts*.

There’s jokes about cheese (never waste an opportunity to bring back that video). There’s unwavering support from Liz’s biggest fan, Joe Lycett. There’s spelling tests, fashion statements and there’s comedians in wigs. More of all of the above, please.

The analysis and expert opinions are important, but we all need a laugh at the best (and the worst) of times. So we’ve rounded up a few golden memes and witty comments from some comedians of the internet.

Truss: girlbossing her way into Number 10

Is there a skip button?

Absolutely smashed it, babe

*Polite applause*

Wait. What does this mean for Larry the Cat?

Hold my cheese!

“It is I, your glorious leader”

Let’s steer clear of the spelling tests

It’s a long trip to Balamory

Is this a next day delivery kind of deal?

And does it mean delivering pay for the posties?

Joe Lycett, watch out

Time to dust off those pussy-bow blouses

So we don’t get a sing-off?

Congrats, Liz

Support our vendors this winter and beyond

If you can't visit your local vendor on a regular basis, then the next best way to support them is with a subscription to the Big Issue. As a social enterprise, we invest every penny we make back into the organisation. That means that with every subscription, we are supporting people in poverty to get back on their own two feet.
