Either going to call a General Election or she is going to resign.

I've got a feeling it could be to tell Monty to get onboard with Brexit :x ...................................................... (giggle) (giggle) (giggle) (giggle) (giggle) (giggle) (giggle)

Prince Phillip is dead?

I can't see why she would call a general election now, the Tories have a good majority in the Commons. I know that Labour are in tatters but it's a risk. So many aren't keen on Brexit, NHS Cuts, etc that a move like that could backfire.

Maybe she is setting up a lovenest with Jeremy Corbyn.

My son says the announcement doesn't have a PM seal so is most likely Party related. That must mean she is standing down.

That's a massive move if it's true.

She is playing with fire here. If she loses that will be the end of Brexit.

A Labour/Lib/SNP coalition might hold the balance of power.

Very risky but surely she has thought it through :^

It will be a straight split between Remain and Leave.

I do think Ms May has overplayed how popular she thinks she is within her own Party.

We could see a new political party being formed just for this election.

Corbyn needs to make his mind up, either he steps down now or he takes up the Remain banner and fights under it.
