A woman’s clueless but hilarious response to Boris Johnson‘s resignation yesterday has got people calling for her to become the new Prime Minister.
In case you somehow managed to miss it, Boris Johnson addressed the nation yesterday to formally resign as the leader of the Conservative party and agree to step down as Prime Minister following a tidal wave of 59 resignations by ministers, MPs, and other government officials – including Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid.
Johnson had been increasing pressure to step down from his position in recent weeks amid several scandals, from Partygate to Pincher.
The Prime Minister said his resignation speech: “I want you to know how sad I am to be giving up the best job in the world – but them’s the breaks.”
He also assured people that “our future together is golden”.
As is often the case in the aftermath of significant political bombshells such as this, news reporters grabbed their cameras and headed out onto the streets across the country to ask people for their take on what went down – and one woman’s response in a now-viral video on social media has left some feeling that she should throw her hat into the ring to take over as the country’s next leader.
Speaking to the BBC in Darlington, the clueless woman said that she wasn’t even aware Johnson had decided to step down from his, but she was pretty pleased about it.
“I didn’t even know he’s resigned,” she exclaimed. “I’ve just finished work so, well that’s a bit of good news, I suppose, isn’t it?”.
It wasn’t a very long response, but it was all she needed to go viral.
Shortly after her interview was aired on television, the clip was shared to Twitter and it has since gone on to amass over three million views and counting, as well as tens of thousands of retweets, likes, and of course, comments from people hailing her as an “icon”.
“Get her in Number 10 now,” one Twitter user said.
Heaping praise on the unnamed woman, another Twitter user commented: “Iconic queen.”
“New queen just dropped,” wrote a third, with another adding: “She’s an icon, she’s a legend and she IS the moment.”
Another commented: “Bless her heart. Protect her at all costs.”
Presumably having got wind that she was going viral on social media, the woman in the video identified herself on Twitter as Erin Mae Denny with the brilliant and appropriate response of “look mum, I’m on TV”.
Her Twitter response has also gone viral, with plenty of people calling her a ‘legend”, sending her praise, and describing it as: “Genuinely the greatest vox pop ever featured on national television”
“You can’t get a more British reaction to a massive piece of news than this, absolutely perfect,” another added.
“To any non brits here, this is what we call a masterclass in great British understatement.”
Coca-Cola confirms the Christmas Truck is coming to Manchester this weekend
Coca-Cola has finally confirmed the news we’ve all been waiting for… the Christmas Truck will be in Manchester this weekend.
December is here, the temperatures have plummeted outside, and the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ is nearing closer and closer by the day – but it’s not Christmas until you’ve gone and got a Coca-Cola from the giant red van is it, right?
Well luckily, we won’t have to wait too much longer to get to do that once again.
The soft drinks company confirmed that ‘Holidays Are Coming’ a couple of weeks back, with the UK tour of the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas Truck now well underway, and having visited other major northern cities such as Leeds and Liverpool over the last few days.
And now, Coca-Cola has revealed that the legendary van is coming to Greater Manchester this weekend, and will be stopping off at the Trafford Centre for one day only.
The much-loved festive symbol will be arriving outside the shopping centre tomorrow (Saturday 2 December) from midday right through until 8pm to provide “the ultimate Christmas celebration”, with a whole host of activities planned for families of all ages.
The 2023 Coca-Cola Christmas Truck journey will be packed with “interactive experiences for visitors to immerse themselves in”.
Anyone who heads to the Trafford Centre from midday tomorrow will first be welcomed by a walk-in, snow-filled bauble that invites them to “step into a winter wonderland for the perfect holiday snapshot”, all before making a stop at the ‘Ho-Ho-Hoop Hut’ to take part in a fun festive game for the chance to win a selection of prizes – including meal-inspired rewards, and recycled Christmas tree decorations.
Families can then finish off the tour by posing for a memorable photo opportunity in front of the iconic Coca-Cola truck.
Visitors are welcome to listen to the Coca-Cola Christmas choir as they perform a set of carols too.
Fancy it then? If you’re ready to kick-start Christmas the right way, then make sure you get yourself down to the Trafford Centre from midday tomorrow.

Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%
Tesco has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys by more than 50%, and they’re now available to get your hands on for a limited time only.
With December officially here, and the festive season nearing closer by the day, most UK supermarkets are rolling out deals left, right, and centre to help shoppers save a few pennies during ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ as the cost of living crisis continues – and it seems like Tesco is absolutely no different.
That’s because the retailer has decided to knock a whopping £12 off the regular price of one-litre bottles of one of the best-loved Christmas tipples.
Fans of the classic Irish cream liqueur drink will probably want to run not walk to their nearest Tesco to stock up on Baileys ready for the big day to arrive, as big bottles of the festive favourite have been reduced from £22 right down to just £10, and are now available to fill your basket with.
But… there’s a bit of a catch (isn’t there always?)
Not only is the over half-price offer only available for a very limited time, and due to expire at the end of next week, but shoppers will only be able to buy the one-litre bottles at the impressive £10 price if they’re Tesco Clubcard customers.
You were probably expecting that’d be the case, right? The supermarket – which is well-known for the savings it offers via is loyalty card scheme all year round – is giving Clubcard users up until Monday 11 December to nip to their nearest branch or head online to the Tesco website and buy as many bottles of Bailey’s as they fancy.
As part of the supermarket’s commitment to “keep prices low” until the end of the year, stuffing, roast potatoes, cranberry sauce, and even tin foil have all seen their prices slashed as the retailer aims to help those struggling to cover costs.
