Ex-Labour leader Ed Miliband managed an hilarious mic drop when he changed his Twitter name to "Chaos with Ed Miliband" shortly after Theresa May announced her resignation on Friday.

The Labour MP for Doncaster North was mocking a famous tweet by former Tory leader and perpetrator of this whole Brexit mess, David Cameron, during the 2015 general election, in which he wrote: "Britain faces a simple and inescapable choice - stability and strong Government with me, or chaos with Ed Miliband".

Miliband's name change comes after Theresa May, who took over the Brexit negotiations when Cameron stepped down in 2016, announced that her premiership will end 7 June after a very turbulent three years, opening up a leadership battle in the Conservative party.

The sneaky joke was not only very timely considering the shambles we currently find ourselves in, but also received a lot of praise on social media, with comedian David Schneider even calling it "comedy genius".

It's safe to say that at this point in time Cameron's tweet has aged very, very badly.
