May is to make an important statement outside 10 Downing Street at 11.15am. The fact that it is outside 10 Downing Street suggests it is of a serious nature and is fairly rare.

The media speculation is that she is going for an election with multiple polls putting the Tories 21% ahead.

Sterling has fallen and 10 year GILTS are about to dip under 10%.

Probably calling an election. If not it's either a resignation or decleration of war with France.

I pray to everything and more that there is no war with anyone.

There is currently no official crest on the lectern...

"BBC assistant political editor Norman Smith says that without an official crest on the front of the PM's podium, it will be a Conservative Party announcement.

He says that would mean her stepping down or a snap general election are the like options..."

Oh for :innocent::innocent::innocent::innocent: sake no just no just no

She can't resign I don't agree with her on everything I disagree with her on quite a few things but she is the best prime minister we have had in a long time she can't go she just can't.

She better not resign if she does I will be physically sick.

She is going to announce three days of national mourning following the death of the Downing Street cat.

Why would she want to resign? She is doing a brilliant job.
She and her party can do this.

They said on BBC that someone spotted the cat. So no need to panic.

Polls are sky high. She's not going anywhere right now. Weak opposition, strong polling and a united party. The only thing dividing her party deeply is if she should call a GE

Would May get enough opposition MPs to support a snap election though? Doesn't she need 2/3 of the house to support it?
