Following her failed Tory leadership attempt, former Leader of the House of Commons Andrea Leadsom is set to return to the late 1950s.

“I was left alone in a room with Sam Gyimah the other day, you know. I don’t mind admitting the experience was more than a little frightening.

“No, the late 1950s is where I belong and I look forward to returning.”

It is expected that after returning to the late 1950s, Ms Leadsom will use her political skill to set up a jam drive for the local W.I.

There is currently no indication that Jacob Rees-Mogg intends to return to the 1870s or that Mark Francois plans to head back to whatever planet he came from.
