She had hoped to become the new prime minister - but after dropping out of the race, Andrea Leadsom has been made Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
Though she hasn't exactly had the most positive reception on Twitter.
Surely that's got to be a joke. Andrea Leadsom is Environment Secretary!? #CabinetReshuffle

Andrea Leadsom made SECRETARY OF STATE for the ENVIRONMENT! WHAT A PATHETIC JOKE!!! #IsClimateChangeReal

Andrea Leadsom is Environment Secretary. Didn't she say she wanted to bring back fox hunting last week?

New Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom insists the UK would be a lot wealthier and more successful if we left the environment.

But what do Twitter users do best when they're not happy? Make lots of jokes, of course. And with some of the controversies that surrounded Leadsom's leadership campaign, she's a pretty easy target.
There's the whole 'as a mother' thing...
At least we know that, as a mother, Andrea Leadsom has a real stake in the future of DEFRA. #CabinetReshuffle

And as a mother, am sure Andrea Leadsom will be an expert on animal husbandry - part of her new role

Andrea Leadsom has a keen interest in the future of the environment because she's a mother ...

Andrea Leadsom is the new environment secretary. Presumably because as a mother herself she has a stake in the future of Mother Nature!

Andrea Leadsom to DEFRA - I'm sure she feels this is a great promotion, as a mother.

... and, of course, the notorious updating of the CV.
Good news that Andrea Leadsom is the new Environment Secretary. With her CV, solving climate change should be a doddle

Andrea Leadsom will be great at DEFRA according to her CV which states her exceptional FarmVille high scores. #reshuffle

It doesn't matter what job Andrea Leadsom got in the #CabinetReshuffle - she's going to put Prime Minister on her CV.
-- Joel Gleicher (@JoelG_88) July 14, 2016
Andrea Leadsom's updated CV states that she reversed climate change and repaired the hole in the ozone layer #Leadsom

Andrea Leadsom appointed as Environment Secretary. Well that's worth adding to the CV - as saviour of the world!!
