“Con’s GAIN Lettuce”
Not another! British Prime Minister Liz Truss resigned after just 45 days in office – the shortest term of any British Prime Minister. The era of the flop is confirmed.
The resignation follows weeks of chaos over his “mini budget” which sparked a meltdown in financial markets.
Things got so bad that the daily star set up a live stream last Friday (October 14) to see if Liz Truss would still be prime minister during a lettuce’s 10-day shelf life.
Reader, lettuce won and celebrates now with a disco.
Yesterday (October 19) the writing was on the wall for Liz when her Home Secretary, Suella Braverman resigned. The situation escalated later in the evening during a vote in the House of Commons on fracking, in which Tory MPs were bullied and bullied to support Liz Truss, according to witnesses.
Both events sent the Conservative Party into a death spiral, and at 1:30 p.m. Thursday Liz Truss stepped down as Prime Minister.
With great political moments like these, there will be serious political questions and consequences. But there are also memes, because how are we supposed to get through these uncertain and unstable times other than laughing at the sheer absurdity of it all?
Here are some of the best Liz Truss quitting and lettuce memes circulating on Twitter right now.
A source close to Lettuce says she’s ‘growing in confidence that I’ll see her go’

When a lettuce lasts longer than a prime minister, we’ve really reached endive time
