Abstract

As the dust settled on the 2019 General Election, social media went into overdrive. A forlorn Boris Johnson, looking more dishevelled than usual, walked out of Downing Street for the last time. His was the ignominy of being the shortest serving PM in modern history. A failed campaign of gaffes and untruths lay behind him as he begrudgingly handed the reins over to a jubilant Jeremy Corbyn and Deputy PM, Jo Swinson. Despite machinations of his comms supremo, Dominic Cummings, Johnson had to accept he had been strategically outflanked in the campaign.
