And now, people on social media are comparing what's happening in UK politics to an episode of the British political comedy The Thick of It.
Now that's nothing new - but this time those claims are bang on the money.
On Friday (14 October), a clip from season 3 episode 2 was shared on Twitter that sees the foul-mouthed Director of Communications Malcolm Tucker's attempt to reassure new minister Nicola Murray about her career.
"The PM is not going to sack you after a week. Sacked after 12 months — looks like you've f***** up. Sacked after a week — looks like he's f***** up," Tucker said to Murray in an interesting attempt to assure her that everything with the unseen PM would be OK.
