Despite the long-winded and on-going Brexit deal battle, the British public are doing their utmost on social media, providing the world with the best Brexit jokes that make us briefly forget what a state our government is in.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, there has been a recent update: in summary, it isn’t going well for Theresa.
As predicted, Theresa May’s criticised EU withdrawal deal was destroyed in a Commons vote, losing by 432 votes to 202 – the heaviest defeat ever experience by a British government.
Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, saw her ultimate humiliation as a prime time to pipe up with a motion of no confidence in the current regime, which is to be voted on again by MPs.
If she loses this vote, it could lead to a general election – but with Tory MPs risking their seats under a left-wing government, it’s unlikely they’ll vote that way. If May tries to push for a no-deal Brexit however, some Conservatives have vowed to do whatever it takes to stop it.
But you didn’t come here to be bogged down with politics, right? This can all be swept under the carpet; we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. After this all came to the surface, Twitter blew up with some of its funniest content yet.
So, if you need a laugh today, here are some of the funniest jokes and memes from another hectic day in British politics:

Brexit really is taking its toll on Theresa May. She looks more and more like Mr Burns as the days drag on.
