As The UK Votes To Leave The EU, Stormzy Kicks Off His ‘Campaign’ To Be Our Next Prime Minister
Ladies and gentleman, may we present to you our saviour...STORMZY
People of the UK – this is our moment.
Following the UK’s decision to leave the EU yesterday (23 June), David Cameron made a statement this morning saying that there will be a new Prime Minister before the Conservative Party Conference in October.
Cameron said that he needed to make way for “fresh leadership”. So who is going to take on the poisoned chalice?
Will it be Theresa May? Boris Johnson? Michael Gove? Apart from the likely suspects, it’s anyone’s guess who will be putting their names forward.
But one name we didn’t count on was Michael Omari, better known as Stormzy.
Following the news about Cameron's resignation, Stormzy tweeted “How many retweets do I need to become prime minister”.
Immeditely after, #StormzyForPrimeMinister blew up.
To elect the new Conservative Party Leader, and therefore the new PM, the party will, essentially, sift through the candidates that have put themselves forward. Eventually, there will be two candidates left for the 150,000 members of the Conservative Party to choose between.
To the 150,000 we say this: do the right thing. Put a cross next to MERKY this Autumn. Let's make the UK MERKY again.
This isn't the first time Stormzy has aired his political views. Recently, Stormzy spoke out on the recent London mayoral election, branding Conservative candidate Zac Goldsmith a “proper p***yhole”. Soon afterwards, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn promptly followed him. #lol.
In an interview with the Guardian, Stormzy spoke about his support for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, “My man Jeremy! Young Jeremy, my guy. I dig what he says,” he said. “I feel he gets what the ethnic minorities are going through and the homeless and the working class.”
