Nadine Dorries and Jacob Rees-Mogg endorse Liz Truss for prime minister
A photo of two of Boris Johnson’s last remaining supporters Jacob Rees-Mogg and Nadine Dorries standing together outside Number 10 has been turned into an instant meme.
The photo of the Johnson loyalists was taken this morning at 10 Downing Street where the pair held an announcement to say they are both backing foreign secretary Liz Truss in the Conservative leadership contest.
Dorries, the Culture Secretary, and, Rees-Mogg, Brexit Minister, stood side by side as they laid out their support for Truss, but little did they know that they were inspiring a new meme.
Screengrabs from the announcement have been turned into hilarious jokes online, with one Twitter user comparing them to the two figures in the famous 1930 American Gothic painting by artist Grant Wood.
They posted a side-by-side of the two images, along with the caption: “Great Britain Gothic.”
