Independent

Kwasi Kwarteng has been out of his job as chancellor for two days but the memes keep on coming - in fact there are more jokes about him than days he spent in the role.

Kwarteng was appointed as chancellor on 6th September and although he's not the shortest-serving chancellor ever (Conservative Iain Macleod, died in office just 30 days after taking the job in 1970) it's certainly not a good look for the MP whose mini-budget plunged the UK economy into chaos.

The UK will now have its fourth chancellor in the space of a year.

There are hundreds of jokes about Kwarteng doing the round on social media, so here are 38 in honour of his 38 days in the job.
