6 Things May Could Say in Her Surprise Statement (Or Not)

Westminster is going mad as we await Theresa May’s statement at 11:15 am. Here is our totally uniformed and feverish speculation as drawn from Lobby hacks tweeting on their return from Easter holidays:

  • Early election
  • Some sort of military operation in Syria or North Korea
  • She’s resigning. Health grounds?
  • Direct rule for Northern Ireland
  • Scottish referendum
  • Something to do with the local elections due in two weeks

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
