Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour party in the U.K., is a highly memed politician. He can go viral whether he's reading a kids book or hitting the dab. The latest meme arrives in the run up to the U.K.'s general election and riffs on Corbyn's current popularity among grime MCs.

Known as Corbyn Bangers, the meme began when the image of Corbyn helping Labour MP Rachael Maskell with a broken microphone was shared by Abby Tomlinson on Twitter. Tomlinson was also the person behind Ed Miliband's cult #Milifandom support base back in 2015. It seems she has a knack for this sort of thing.

Since then the meme has spread fast and wide. Check out a selection of the best ones below.
