The jokes have been pouring in since.

Needless to say, it quickly led to the Prime Minister being rechristened "David Hameron" and the Prime Rib Minister. It wasn't long before takes on the memes of the day started getting posted.

These tweets have been funny and all, but we shouldn't be surprised about these allegations, really. After all, David Cameron was raised in Berkshire.
