17 Beyond British Reactions To Boris Johnson's #Borexit
After vehemently campaigning for Britain to exit the EU and current Prime Minister David Cameron to resign from his position, Tory MP Boris Johnson has announced he will NOT join the Conservative leadership race.
Previously the favourite to succeed Cameron in the event of Brexit, the former Mayor of London shocked the country to its core with the announcement.

Reacting the only way they know how (and have the energy to, following the battering they've taken in the last few days), the Great British public took their country back - with a shit tonne of sarcastic memes:
First, they pointed out this actual thing that actually happened:

Then they stalked David Cameron and took photos:

Then drew on that dry humour we're so well known for:

Us too dude:
Dear god. The line between reality and satire has blurred so much I don't know what's real anymore.

But now they've really gone and done it. NO TEA AND CAKE FOR YOU:

This girl just really fucking hates Jamie Oliver:
Nice one Boris, Jamie Oliver said he'd leave the country if you were ever PM. Thanks for ruining my life

True heroes walk among us:
Today I am using the Boris strategy at work. I've broken everything, pissed off everyone and run away to avoid any consequences.

Used to catch the same bus as Boris Johnson.
He always sat in the front seat, top deck.
Where the kids sit when they're pretending to drive.

Still, Boris should now have a spare hour or so to write his Shakespeare book.
— Stig Abell (@StigAbell) June 30, 2016
The stark truth:
The crazy thing is all Boris Johnson needs is a new 6 sec clip of him riding his bicycle into a lamppost and everyone will love him again.
— Ian Hyland (@HylandIan) June 30, 2016
Sarcasm? What's that?
Oh well, it's a good job Boris Johnson's aborted leadership bid had no lasting negative consequences for the country.

I liked Boris before all this & I'll like him after all this.
Smart guy, great character, made more people interested in politics.
