Starting early on Wednesday morning, a picture of outgoing British Prime Minister David Cameron started going viral on social media, especially in India and Pakistan.

The picture shows Cameron helping packers and movers and carrying a box.

NDTV reported:

The Internet seems to think this is a recent picture. However, the photo was actually taken when Mr Cameron was still Leader of Opposition - he became Prime Minister in 2010. According to a Dailymail article dating back to 2007, the picture was taken when Mr Cameron and his family were moving into their new house in North Kensington, London.

However, that didn't stop people from spreading the photo along with messages of admiration and advice to our leaders to learn from Cameron. Here are a few of them.

 

 

 

Here's the truth.

Theresa May succeeds Cameron

Meanwhile, Cameron's successor arrived at Downing Street, and vowed to lead a government that works for all, not just the "privileged few".

The BBC reported:

The UK's second female prime minister promised to give people who were "just managing" and "working around the clock" more control over their lives. Downing Street said she took a number of "congratulatory phone calls" from other European leaders on Wednesday evening, where she told them "some time" would be needed to prepare for EU exit talks.

May also made former London mayor Boris Johnson, who led the Brexit campaign, foreign secretary in her new government.
