We're not even 24 hours into Boris Johnson's reign as prime minister and it's already looking more apocalyptic than anyone could have ever envisioned.

Johnson has completely reshuffled his cabinet and appointed some Tory MPs that have raised a lot of eyebrows among the public.

The ascension of outspoken individuals like Priti Patel, Dominic Raab and Jacob Rees-Mogg hasn't been universally received as something to get excited about.

With that in mind, we thought that we'd try and spread a small bit of cheer on this otherwise bleak but oddly hot day in Britain and provide a joke from Twitter about each of the cabinet ministers.

Sajid Javid, chancellor of the exchequer.

Priti Patel, home secretary.

Dominic Raab, foreign secretary.

Stephen Barclay, Brexit secretary.

Michael Gove, chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster.

Ben Wallace, minister of defence.
