After Boris Johnson and the Tory PR machine left two voters with an ‘early Christmas gift’, they made a website to help you make your own memes about the prime minister.

Matthew Kennedy and Georgia Horrocks created the website borisactually.com to give people the "tools to troll Boris."
There's already been hundreds of funny images made from the prime minister's Love Actually-style campaign video which was widely mocked.
As a lesson in not holding a blank, white card, some people have made messages which read "I've been a liar all my life. That's the truth" and "My PR team are getting sacked in the morning".
After making the Love Actually-style campaign video, Johnson actually admitted that he had not seen the film Love Actually, saying: "I've not seen all of it from beginning to end because I'm so busy, but I, I'm familiar with the basic concept and the fantastic work done by Hugh Grant."
Mathew Kennedy said: "We created it in reaction to Borris Johnson's cringe-worthy, Love Actually inspired, beg to the nation to vote Tory.
Boris has not acted in a loving or altruistic way his entire life. So we'd rather he didn't use our favourite Christmas movie for his power hungry personal agendas."

Other top memes already made show Boris holding signs that say "Lost my keys. Can I come in?", "Mogg's in the basement", and "Got Trump a present: The NHS".
Kennedy continued: "It's a polarising election. And with Brexit looming it feels like we're stuck between a rock and a hard place. With the additional worry of having to weigh up whether you give more weight to Brexit and the possible trade deals or focus on policies that address education, police, and healthcare systems now.
"But regardless of which party you support, Boris Johnson is not a man that we think should be representing Britain as our Prime Minister. His misogynistic, homophobic, racist comments should not be accepted in today's society.
"And his desperately tragic Love Actually video was the final straw. Things have got personal. We vowed to take him down, One meme at a time."
