Richard Curtis’ classic 2003 movie, Love Actually that revolves around the lives and loves of a range of characters in the run-up to Christmas, has become a famous British icon. It has been featured in a range of internet memes all these years. Prime Minister Boris Johnson also mimicked a famous scene in his latest party political broadcast. Johnson and the majority of mainstream media predicted that this would be the Brexit Election. A series of unfortunate events have decreed that the 2019 scrap for Britain's government will be remembered throughout history. A Twitter user wrote, "Politics nerds, when was the last time we had a UK election very close to Christmas?”

An underrated depressing feature of this election is the normalisation of Love Actually. The fight on that is over, it seems.— Stig Abell (@StigAbell) December 10, 2019
Someone soon replied with a gif of Hugh Grant’s character in Love Actually with Prime Minister David who wins a pre-Christmas election. The left-wing activists were at it first superimposing the Labour policy onto the cards. They were followed by Tooting MP Dr Rosena Allin-Khan, who re-enacted the entire scene in an election campaign video. People mocked that Hugh Grant is the perfect storm of celebrity glamour and also offers the opportunity for members of the UK public who love to be subjugated by a member of an elite ruling class.
