It's time to play the music! Liz Truss and the Tories are ridiculed with hilarious Muppet Show spoof video as social media is flooded with memes as PM clings on to power

KURO

The hilarious spoof video shows crude cut outs of the embattled PM and members of her cabinet dancing to The Muppet Show's opening theme. Ms Truss is shown as a cackling Kermit the Frog, while Health Secretary Therese Coffey, Home Secretary Suella Braverman and new Chancellor Jeremy Hunt all feature in the mock-up. Labour leader Sir Kier Starmer and SNP Leader in the Commons, Ian Blackford, are also portrayed as cantankerous Muppet Show viewers Statler and Waldorf as they sing their line 'it's kind of like torture to have to watch this show'. The video, viewed more than 1.5million times, also features a short clip from Ms Truss's infamous 2014 'pork market' speech, made when she was the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. It comes as social media users today mocked 'motionless' Ms Truss after her brief appearance in Parliament - with some comparing her to a Madame Tussauds replica.
