Ukraine backs calls for Boris Johnson to return as British Prime Minister with funny meme
| Last updated
It appears Ukraine is in full support of Boris Johnson returning as British Prime Minister after Liz Truss announced she's stepping down from the top job.
After just 44 days as the UK's PM, a time that was chaotic and turbulent, Truss has decided she's had enough and will step aside for a new candidate to lead Britain.
However, it might not necessarily be someone 'new'.
People are speculating that Boris Johnson could potentially be in the running to make a return to Downing Street.
Sir James Duddridge, who worked as Johnson's parliamentary private secretary (PPS), did nothing to quell the rumours by writing on Twitter: "Hope you enjoyed your extended holiday. It is time to come back, Boris."
There's at least one place celebrating the concept of Boris going back to Downing Street: Ukraine.
The country's official Twitter account shared a meme that showed Johnson's head on a Better Call Saul meme that said Better Call Boris.
The post didn't have any other commentary, however many believe it's Ukraine showing its strong support for Boris returning as leader.
But the easter European country might not get what it wants.
Conservative MP Sir Robert Syms described the idea of Boris running for the Tory leadership as 'a fantasy'.
He wrote on Twitter: "The number for nomination will be lifted to limit runners and there will be massive pressure on the second candidate in MPs ballot to drop out."
Deputy leader of the Lib Dems, Daisy Cooper, has encouraged Tory MPs to ensure they stop Boris from coming back to Downing Street.
"The fact that Conservative MPs are even considering putting Boris Johnson back in Number 10 shows how out of touch they really are," she said.
"They think there’s one rule for them and another for everyone else.
"Boris Johnson was forced to resign in disgrace after countless lies, scandals and failures.
"He shattered public trust in the government and plunged the UK into a political crisis. He must never be allowed near Downing Street again."
Liz Truss decided to step down as British Prime Minister after realising she 'cannot deliver the mandate' that Tory members gave her a little over six weeks ago when she replaced Boris Johnson.
Just 24 hours after she described herself as 'a fighter, not a quitter', Truss delivered an address outside of No. 10 Downing Street to reveal she had informed the King she was resigning as Tory leader.
She will stay in office for a few more days while the Conservative party sorts out who will be the next leader and Prime Minister.
