It seems that some Conservative MPs already have a new nickname for Theresa May. And it's disturbing.
Sun journalist Harry Cole today tweeted:
Had second old school Tory MP - in all seriousness - refer to the Prime Minister as “mummy” on the phone today. That's twice in a week.
Yes, this was our first reaction too.
BBC journalist Callum May summed up his thoughts in 140 characters or less.
The Sun’s Westminster correspondent has not yet revealed who these “old school” Tory MPs are – which for their sake is perhaps just as well.
The nickname is vaguely reminiscent of alt-right fanatic Milo Yiannopoulos, who famously calls Donald Trump “Daddy”.
And of course Mike Pence, who infamously refers to his wife as 'Mother'.
