These 13 memes from last night’s debate prove we’re living in a dystopian hellscape
Lol how did Britain ever run the world? We’re a mess
Last night, ITV held a General Election debate between Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn. Then an hour later showed all the other leaders being interviewed individually.
But the highlight of the night wasn't what the leaders said. The memes about the debate and the official Conservative Twitter account temporarily transforming into a "checking profile" stole the limelight instead.
These 13 memes from last night's debate prove we're living in a dystopian hellscape:
1. Someone made a parody Italian CCHQ account and it's hilarious
2. Mamma miaaa!!!
3. No but seriously, can we get Italian Elon Musk back or
So for reference they took away the verification and suspended the account of a guy who changed his profile to say “Italian Elon Musk” and tweeted “eyy whoa I’m buildin a hyperloop heeah” but the Tories apparently did nothing wrong?

laughter in the crowd at the thought of a four day week, laughter at the thought of a life that doesn’t resolve around working yourself to death. nation of bootlickers, born to serve
