Madame Tussauds Has Savagely Placed Its Boris Johnson Statue Outside A Job-Seeking Centre
| Last updated
A wax figure of now-former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has appeared outside a job seeker's centre following his resignation from the top job.
The 58-year-old revealed he will step down as the leader of the Conservative Party and the country following weeks of scandal and controversy.
The past two days alone have seen over 50 ministers, as well as several of Johnson's cabinet, quit over issues to do with his leadership.
And now, a fake Boris Johnson has been seen outside of a Jobcentre Plus in Lancashire to really rub it in.
The waxwork features Johnson's sassy hands-on-hips stance, boyish grin, and trademark messy hairdo.
To be honest, it's not that far from the real deal if you ask us.
The waxwork was created at Madame Tussauds Blackpool and has already seen multiple people pose for photos with the realistic wax figure of the former PM.
But it isn't Madame Tussauds Blackpool that is having all of the fun.
Madame Tussauds in London has also updated its 10 Downing Street display with a sign saying 'vacancy' with Johnson standing alongside, the Independent reports.
As the leadership race begins for the Tory party and the coveted gig as Prime Minister, Madame Tussauds confirmed to the the Independent that Johnson’s wax figure will be removed from the London attraction once a new prime minister is elected.
While addressing the British public, he admitted there would be 'many people who are relieved', as well as 'perhaps quite a few who will be quite disappointed'.
"I want you to know how sad I am to be giving up the best job in the world. But them's the breaks," Johnson said.
Weird way to wrap up a stint as Prime Minister, but you do you.
He continued: "It was the will of the parliamentary Conservative Party that there should be a new leader of that party and therefore a new prime minister.
"And I’ve agreed with Sir Graham Brady, the chairman of our backbench MPs, that the process of choosing that new leader should begin now and the timetable will be announced next week.
"And I’ve today appointed a Cabinet to serve, as I will, until a new leader is in place."
He went on to thank the British public for 'the immense privilege' of having him as prime minister.
