Michael Gove has been fired as justice secretary.
As is customary on such occasions, people donned their comedy hats and set about coming up with the most hilarious responses possible to his tweet acknowledging the news.
Quite a few referenced his recent back-stabbing of Boris Johnson.
Restraint and subtlety weren’t the order of the day.
Some people tried to keep it classy. And failed.
One chap was even so kind as to provide a soundtrack.
And of course this gif surfaced.
Ah, the reminiscing...
But at least Gove has kept his dignity since joining Twitter last month.
At least some people were worried about his future.
And another at least appeared to be trying to make him feel better. Sort of.
We’re just putting this one in for the added colour.
And always look on the bright side.
