David Cameron may have got the Tories chuckling during his keynote conference speech on Wednesday after he jokingly impersonated former Foreign Secretary William Hague - but it seems that Twitter is less than impressed.
Speaking at the party conference in Birmingham, Cameron mimicked Hague's famous teenage conference speech, saying "Some of you won't be here in 30 years time," in a slightly dodgy Yorkshire accent.
"All right, I won't give up the day job," the PM added, as horrified social media users took to Twitter to voice their mortification.

During his speech, Cameron sparked outrage after stating that Hague was "the greatest living Yorkshireman," something, again, that Twitter invariably disagreed with.
So, HuffPost UK rounded up at least 9 challengers (excluding the great Yorkshirewomen like Dame Judi Dench, Jessica Ennis, Barbara Hepworth and Helen Sharman, Britain's first astronaut).
