‘Hot podium guy for PM’: Twitter hails unlikely successor to Theresa May (VIDEO)
An unsuspecting sound engineer appeared before the press gathered outside No. 10 Downing Street on Friday morning to finalize the setting for May’s resignation announcement.
As journalists shared snaps of the set-up on Twitter, interest grew in who the mystery man at the center of the preparations might be – and if he may in fact prove a strong successor to the outgoing prime minister.
People were quick to tweet their intrigue, with many simply calling for his immediate appointment as prime minister, if only so that it saves everyone the fuss of having to go through an arduous Tory leadership selection process.
After 60 seconds setting up the podium this guy seems like the most qualified candidate we’re likely to get...I bet he knows why Dover-Calais is important, that your ferry company needs boats and would snap Francois’s fingers off if he ran them across his throat behind him... pic.twitter.com/fudLxLzUQK— jonathansebire (@jonathansebire) May 24, 2019
