The Tories are currently in the midst of a particularly LOL-worthy PR fail after MP Grant Shapps tweeted a condescending ad aimed at “hardworking people”. Yes, it’s real and some have said proves yet again that we can rely on the Tories to march along blissfully unaware of how out of touch with us poor, drunk, debt-ridden simple folk they really are.
Unsurprisingly, Twitter’s reaction was fierce, instantaneous and absolutely hilarious, spawning the #ToryBingo hash tag.
The tweets and memes that followed have been hilarious and here are just a few of our favourites. If you want to make your own then visit torybingo.com and feel free to add it in the comments below.

Can’t heat my house enough to stay alive, 45. #torybingo

It’s unconfirmed, but people may have also started making fun of the way Tories speak.

A poor person must have read a book at some point to draw this harrowing comparison.
