Former British prime minister Theresa May has once again grabbed the media spotlight after she was caught giving a side-eye to her successor Boris Johnson while he was discussing the new Brexit proposal.
Even as Johnson defended his proposal for Brexit, May managed to become the talk of the town with her side-eye and facial expression during the meeting. The photo went viral after BBC political correspondent Nick Eardley shared it on Twitter. Check out the tweet:

Is she thinking “ Why didn’t I think of that?” ?

It’s her “I wish I’d thought of that” face

EU Council President Donald Tusk responded to Johnson’s new proposal and said that he was not convinced but said that the union’s doors will be open. Johnson now just has less than a month to gather the support for his proposal to end the three-year political deadlock since the Brexit referendum.
