Ed Miliband makes hilarious Twitter name change mocking the Tories hours after Theresa May announces resignation

Former Labour leader Ed Miliband has rebranded his Twitter handle to poke fun at the Tories after Theresa May announced she was stepping down on Friday.

The Labour MP for Doncaster North changed his handle to “Chaos with Ed Miliband,” mocking a tweet posted by former Tory leader David Cameron during the 2015 general election.

He wrote: "Britain faces a simple and inescapable choice - stability and strong Government with me, or chaos with Ed Miliband".

Mr Miliband made the name change hours hours after Theresa May announced her resignation as the Conservative Party leader and prime minister.

Mrs May took over the Brexit negotiations when Mr Cameron stepped down in 2016.

She announced she was stepping down on Friday, which will come into effect on June 7 after a turbulent three years.

Mr Miliband's rebranding has since been praised as “the only good thing in politics right now.”

One person wrote: “Does anyone think we should have opted for the chaos with Ed Miliband?”

Another shared an image of Mr Miliband with the puppet Basil Brush alongside the caption: “I know I'm not the first to say this, and I doubt I will be the last, but I for one yearn for chaos with Ed Miliband”

Another said: “If we have to have another referendum I really want one of the options to be "chaos with Ed Miliband".
