It’s been an eventful day in Parliament, with a series of ministerial resignations and the Prime Minister threatened with a vote of no-confidence over her Brexit deal.

Little surprise then that #BrexitChaos was the top trend in the UK as Theresa May addressed MPs in the Commons about her plans.

Among those who quit the Prime Minister’s Cabinet were Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab and Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey.

Social media users reacted to the news with tweets serious and not-so-serious, as Britain discussed the prospect of the PM’s three options: deal, no deal, or no Brexit at all.

Here are some of the best reactions social media had to offer.

1. Comedian Shappi Khorsandi offered to take Mr Raab’s place.

2. This journalist drew comparison to the Harry Potter books…

3. David Baddiel made this incredible pun.

4. John Prescott asked for this one simple favour.

5. Actor Rob Delaney gave everyone this strong mental image.

6. Comedian Ian Stone suggested everybody should get a go at Mr Raab’s job.

7. Try to keep up with this…

8. Don’t worry, this important member of Government hasn’t resigned.

9. Lastly, this Twitter user remained optimistic.
