’10 Downing Street available on Airbnb for short stays’: Memes galore as UK Prime Minister Liz Truss’ steps down after 45 days in office
Of 10 Downing Street being available to rent on Airbnb for short stays at a revolving door set up at the British Prime Minister’s official residence, Twitter was flooded with memes after Liz Truss resigned as British Prime Minister after less than six weeks in office.
Truss resigned on Thursday, October 20, after just 45 days in office, making her Britain’s shortest-serving prime minister. His resignation sparked a social media meme fest with netizens comparing his reign in power to many things that have survived him. A British newspaper even launched a livestream on October 14 to see if the lettuce could outlast the PM. The lettuce was declared the winner, it seems.
