Esther McVey says she may run to be PM – the 13 hottest burns
Esther McVey has a habit of attracting the wrong kind of attention. There was the time she said there’d been too much “nasal gazing” over Brexit or her claim that the EU was planning to force the euro onto all of its member states, and both of these were just this month.

Twitter was pretty unimpressed.
At this stage it seems easier to identify those not running to be Tory leader. Top of the list is Theresa May https://t.co/esc7zUdLXy

A sofa cushion full of retired colonel farts
A photo of a man shouting at a wheelchair
A bile duct
An angry face drawn onto a dildo
That black stuff that gathers on the rubber seal of a washing machine

Just think about a country in which Esther McVey actually believes she has the ability to be prime minister.

A garlicky burp makes more sense than that woman.
