People Are Saying The Best Bit About The PM Resigning Was This Guy

Chris York

After months of clinging on, it finally happened. Theresa May is stepping down as PM.

But as the world’s TV cameras patiently watched the front of No.10, awaiting her arrival at the lectern, it was the appearance of an as-yet unnamed gentleman that got tongues wagging.

Dubbed “podium guy” or “lectern guy” depending on who you ask, the well-built chap with a ruffled ginger mop thoroughly entertained viewers as they waited for the main event.

Who is he? No idea. But his very important job readying the lectern outside Number 10 has inadvertently made him frontrunner in the Tory leadership contest. Possibly.

But what are his qualifications? Well there’s this...

And this...

Basically, just his general charisma....

So yes, it is a bit shallow, objectifying a man who has no say in whether he should be unwittingly flung into instant internet fame, but surely we all deserve even just a short break from Brexit?

And, because HuffPost UK is here to serve you, the Great British Public, we rewatched the clip and can confirm he even winked to the camera at one point.

You’re welcome.
