One area Cher certainly never holds back is when it comes to politics, and while she saves most of her iconic put downs for the current administration over in Washington, she’s also been known to share her thoughts over what’s taking place here in the UK.

Here’s a brief rundown of Cher’s UK political commentary…

1. As with most things these days, it all started with the EU referendum in June 2016, which Cher stayed up and live-tweeted her thoughts on. When “Leave” won, she was seemingly devastated, and did her best to warn the US of what could be next for them:

8. Not to mention her thoughts on Theresa May:

9. We love when a Queen speaks on behalf of the Queen:

10. In 2017, she led the celebrations, when it looked as though Trump’s visit to the UK would no longer be going ahead:

11. Though it later wound up casting a bit of a shadow over her own visit to the UK, to promote her star turn in the ‘Mamma Mia!’ sequel:

12. And if you thought she was done calling out Farage and Johnson, then think again, as evidenced when reports suggested that a “no deal” Brexit could result in food shortages:
