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.
This has become a real life British House of Cards ? backstabbing bastards LOVE IT #popcorn

So at least the next season of House of Cards is moving back to its British roots, with lots of recent material! ??

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.
UK politics today makes House of Cards look unimaginative and turgidly boring.

Cancelling my Netflix subscription for House of Cards because UK politics is just as good, if not better right now. pic.twitter.com/sd9A03GAfU

It must be dawning on @HouseofCards writers that they've not been sufficiently outlandish in their imaginings of how far politicians will go

British politics is great at the minute. I no longer have to wait for a new season of House of cards

Other TV shows about brutal backstabbing and political game-playing were also included.
Labour leadership: Game of Thrones. Tory Leadership: House of Cards
