Following last week's disastrous general election result for Labour, Jeremy Corbyn announced that he would be stepping down as the leader of the party to make way for someone new.

His successor is likely to be appointed in the early part of 2020, with a host of names already being suggested but so far only Emily Thornberry has confirmed that she will be running.

Others who have expressed their interest include Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long-Bailey, Yvette Cooper, Clive Lewis, with other potential names including Jess Phillips and David Lammy.

Another who has expressed their interest is Lisa Nandy, the MP for Wigan, who has become a Twitter hero thanks to her passion for reconnecting Labour with its former town heartlands.

The former member of the shadow cabinet has founded the Centre for Towns think tank, which aims to shine a light on the towns of the UK, which often get unfairly overshadowed by the much larger cities.

This all sounds fairly straightforward for a backbench MP, until you realise that people cannot get enough of Nandy's love of towns, resulting in it becoming a brilliant meme and we are all here for it.

There are three memes set to Vengaboys songs which we very much approve of.

Here is a festive one.

And another.

Even if Nandy doesn't become the Labour leader she deserves her own Netflix series.

There is even a Twitter account now dedicated to Lisa Nandy's love of towns and we have no choice to stan.

Just to prove that this meme isn't mocking Nandy, she even liked one of the tweets herself.

It's good to see that less than a week after the election Labour supporters are already back to having fun, promoting good policies about towns and not letting the election result get them down.
