Since Theresa May delivered a statement calling for a snap General Election, and MPs voted 522 to 13 in favour of holding said election on 8 June, a petition calling for Louis Theroux to be made the next prime minister has been gathering traction.
The statement on change.org reads: "Since the EU referendum in Britain, politicians, experts and those with the country in their hands have failed to show they are capable of leading the nation during this complex time.
"We call on the government to accept that the only right thing to do is appoint presenter, documentary maker and national treasure Louis Theroux as the next prime minister.
"As one of the most understanding, smart and trusted men in the UK, Mr Theroux (probably) has more skills to work out what is best for post-Brexit Britain than May, Farage and Corbyn combined.
"And if he fails, at least he can make a bloody good film about it (or become leader of the opposition and fire some pretty great questions around the Houses of Parliament)."
