In the midst of the Tory leadership campaign, Liz Truss cheese memes have flooded Twitter ...

The race to elect the Conservative Party's next leader continues following Boris Johnson's departure.

Following the most recent voting round by MPs Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss, only two candidates remain in the running.

Penny Mordaunt, Kemi Badenoch, Tom Tugendhat, Suella Braverman, Nadhim Zahawi, and Jeremy Hunt have already been eliminated from the race.

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is set to meet Rishi Sunak for the position of prime minister, but that's not the only reason she's a popular topic on the internet.

Thanks to a speech that has recently surfaced, the 46-year-old is also a viral meme.

Liz Truss' cheese speech has been reinstated.

Liz Truss' address on cheese has gone viral on social media amid the Tory leadership election.

She gave a speech at a Conservative Party conference while she was secretary for the environment under David Cameron in 2014.

Truss was talking about the UK's strong food industry, including wheat cultivation, cheesemaking, and tea exportation.

Before the audience roared into applause, she explained that the French are capable of producing more varieties of cheese.

Before adding a trend that has been viral for over a decade, Truss said she wants to see people eat more produce in the United Kingdom.

We import two-thirds of all of our apples, and nine-tenths of all of our pears. We import two-thirds of our cheese, that's a disgrace, said the author.

The MPs' particular emphasis on the word disgrace and the curious topic of cheese immediately turned the clip into an internet meme, which resurfaced this month.

In the midst of the Tory leadership campaign, memes have flooded Twitter.
