UK Prime Minster Theresa May can put up the bunting to mark 12 months at Number 10 but it’s unlikely to be a celebration after a difficult year in the top job.
From her arrival after the 2016 referendum – and David Cameron’s subsequent resignation – through a snap election and with the underlying tales of austerity, Brexit and the rise of Jeremy Corbyn it’s not exactly the strong and stable era the PM wanted.
But one thing which has been strong is the UK’s meme game. Every time May has courted controversy or put her proverbial foot in mouth there’s been an online commentator ready with a witticism or quickly retouched image to scoff at the absurdity of UK politics right now.
Here we take a trip down memory lane.
-What does Brexit mean?
-Oh. What colour is it?
-Red, white, blue.
-Cool. What's...it's favourite food?
-This is fun.— ~ (@daniel_barker) December 6, 2016
Theresa May wants a "red, white and blue" Brexit. EU nations with the same flag colour scheme: Lux., France, Netherlands, Liechtenstein. Lol— George (@mistervertigo_) December 6, 2016
