It's official: UK politics is now more interesting than House Of Cards


The battle for PM is hotting up, with Tory Party members climbing over each other to get to the top spot, while the Labour Party is in meltdown, with mass defections from Jeremy Corbyn's shadow cabinet.

For some Twitter users, the absurdity of the leadership races has led to comparisons with fictional US series House Of Cards, in which a scheming Kevin Spacey plots his way to the top of the US political system.

Some are even claiming that the political in-fighting of the two main parties is more interesting than watching the hit US TV series, which itself is based on a UK series from the 1990s.

Other TV shows about brutal backstabbing and political game-playing were also included.
