    Apparently the PM's crest is on the lectern which is unusual for a resignation speech.

    hmmm, this indicates that it might not be just a resignation speech.

    Then again maybe this is a myth about the lectern .

    OK so she stays on until Bojo is appointed. As she pointed out the new PM will have to get a majority in Parliament.

    So it now looks like the U.K. is to have a new PM who has not been elected by the public to push a hard Brexit never envisaged by the referendum supporter by a minority government made up of a party that’s been decimated at the polls
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    It's difficult to see the government surviving without a GE.

    OK apparently Bojo's campaign management team is planning for a GE.

    Looks like Brenda from Bristol failed to thwart it.

    I'm presuming that Nigel Farage will put his Brexit party back in the box for a GE, some stragglers though will switch back to UKIP, and that means the opposition support will be split, but the Tories will pickup that 35% from the Brexit party and lose a few percent of the Brino voters who are currently supportíng the Tories.

    This could get interesting. Scary, but interesting.

    He might have a taste for it by then if the bookies are to be believed

    When was the last time the starting favourite won a Tory leadership election?

    Anyway, you can get 15/8 on Johnson as next PM.
