Twitter Reacts In Typically Ironic Fashion To Lord Lucan’s Death Annoucement!

It was a case that shocked and stunned the nation at the time, when the peer disappeared without trace after allegedly murdering his children’s nanny.

His chips have gone cold though”

There will never be a time when this particular DWP tweet will not be funny. It was hilarious when they attached it to Richard III and it’s hilarious now.
