People of all political persuasions experienced some degree of amusement as three weeks of hiding in a cupboard at Number 11 ended with the chancellor’s sacking, although the main feeling across the nation was absolutely nothing.

Sean Carter, a teacher from Bristol, said: “Remain or Leave, English, Welsh, Scots or Northern Irish, Left or Right, everyone can today unite in feeling something between satisfaction and complete indifference at this news.
“This is what the nation needed.”
