During the Scottish Parliament election, Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon casually gave a thumbs up to reporters as she campaigned for re-election in her constituency of Glasgow Southside – while (spoiler alert - she won her seat).
What’s worse is that we had to see this play out with our own eyes when CCTV footage from Hancock’s Whitehall office was leaked showing the pair kissing back in April - breaking Covid restrictions that were still in place.
And the memes certainly didn’t stop there, when Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie were pictured watching the England vs Germany Euro 2020 game on his office TV - and Twitter immediately knew what to do.
One photoshopper decided to superimpose the CCTV footage of Hancock and Coladangelo kissing onto the TV screen Johnson and his wife were watching the football on.
Johnson made meme history again when a rambling CBI speech didn’t quite come across as well as he perhaps hoped when he used it to reveal he had spent his Sunday afternoon at Peppa Pig World with his wife Carrie and son Wilfred, marvelling at the “pure genius” cartoon creation.
Although the prime minister denied that the parties took place and that Covid rules were followed, he announced that cabinet secretary Simon Case would investigate whether one of the parties took place. Then, Case stepped down from this role over allegations he was involved in some parties of his own - the scandal just goes on and on.
As you can imagine, the scandal resulted in a strong (and creative) public response as memes relating to the matter spread like wildfire on Twitter.
For every meme-worthy scandal, comedian Munya Chawawa is always guaranteed to create a hilarious video about it.
