He’s done what? The top 10 memes on Sunak’s sodden speech

It was a banter launch for what will be undoubtedly a banter election. Within minutes of stepping out into Downing Street, Rishi Sunak was soaked, literally by the pouring rain and metaphorically in online ridicule as the internet’s wags seized on the unworldly bizarreness of the launch. Uncut has collated the top 10 that are making Westminster smile. Given Rishi Sunak’s political touch, this is unlikely to be the last top 10 of the campaign.

In reverse order:

10. Rishi as Partridge. Quite uncanny.

9. And we go live to the internal monologue of most Conservative MPs…

8. To be fair, the visuals here are much better than the actual announcement. There’s some sunshine and better composition than the Tory team managed.

7. If “Gullis eating soup with a fork” doesn’t make you smile then all we can say is ‘Sorry Jonathan, one day you’ll look back and laugh’

6. Cracking from the TUC and so quick off the mark, posted within the hour

5. The expression in her eyes perfectly captures the response across most of Westminster at the wisdom of the day’s events

4. Whatever could this be about?

3. One day, a history of the 2010-2024 Conservative government will be written exclusively through the medium of this Bladerunner quote

2. Downing Street’s most sensible resident

1. Serious message given what happened at the local elections
