After executing one of the biggest decisions in the history of modern Britain, UK PM Theresa May will announced on May 24 that she will step down as the PM amid Brexit impasse.

The British Prime Minister announced, at a press conference, speaking in 10 Downing Street, that she will resign on June 7 as the British PM, ending her rocky three-year tenure.

However, even amidst May's emotional farewell speech, where she was heard saying, "I will shortly leave the job that it has been the honour of my life to hold. The second female prime minister, but certainly not the last," what seems to have distracted Netizens around the world is someone, who, while present there, had nothing to do with the prime minister's speech.

It seems that the sound technician who was tasked with setting up the microphones has managed to garner more attention online than May herself. It turns out that he has managed to become somewhat of a social media star, with many petitioning to make him the next PM. Move over politicians, people on Twitter have already set their sights on a new candidate.

Prior to May's departure speech, a sound engineer was caught smiling at the camera. Netizens being who they are, quickly made a screenshot of the Downing Street sound engineer and declared him to be the new PM.

One user wrote, "It's peak gay Twitter that we're all putting aside our political differences by thirsting over Podium Guy."

And another made an interesting Game of Thrones allusion and quipped, "Using Game of Thrones succession logic, I'd like to suggest Hot Podium Guy as the new Prime Minister."

A third user wrote, "The leader we need in these trying times. They way he set up those mics shows he has the "I've a job to do and do it I shall" mentality we need. #Trexit."

Another user posted, “Let’s just make the sound engineer Prime Minister and move on with our lives.”

One user even started a call for a petition to make the sound technician the next PM. The person wrote, “Petition for this hunky tech guy to replace May #PecksforPM #TheresaMay.”

According to a CNBC report Boris Johnson, former Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab, Environment Secretary Michael Gove, former House of Commons leader Andrea Leadsom and Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt are a few in the running to be the next PM.
