Nobody knows what it's about.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-39627690

Theresa May is to make a surprise statement in Downing Street at 11:15 BST after her Cabinet meets.

In an unusual move, Number 10 did not announce what subject she would address but statements by the PM in the street are usually reserved for big announcements.

There is speculation that Mrs May could call a snap general election.

Downing Street has always denied she will call a vote before the next scheduled poll in 2020.

BBC assistant political editor Norman Smith says broadcasters usually know what is about to be announced, but on this occasion they do not.

Sounded a good speech to me. Dont believe she's only just come to the decision to call it though - Im suprised its taken til now . Right move though in my opinion. (Not that I agree with all the C policies , but given the present situation, an election right now is the way to protect us during Brexit)AS LONG AS SHE WINS BIG! Poisoned dwarf will do her best against it .

She did say she would not have a snap general election. My feeling is, that she's been pushed into it and wouldn't mind betting that Michael Heseltine has something to do with it.

After he was sacked a few weeks ago, in an interview I saw, he vowed he would not rest and would continue to fight against Brexit. He was also the one responsible for Maggie Thatcher going. Maybe he just doesn't like women .

I think it's a good thing anyway. With all the argy bargy, the continual unrest ,challenges from the House of Lords, that bloody Gina Miller and her lawyer who is now an MP for Labour, and all that goes on courtesy of the BBC, let's put it to bed once and for all. If she is re-elected great, because I think she's doing a good job. If she isn't then so be it, and may the best man and his elected MP's be able to come together and form a unity to take us through the traumas and upheavles of the years ahead. If Tim Farron wins, then we can all call for another referendum on the final decisions made in the Brexit negotiations.

Crikey I got all worried when I heard she was going to announce something this morning. I could hear Churchill's words when he announced we are at war. Thought she had teamed up with Trump against N Korea, you know me a born worrier! I'm quite surprised at this move but in my opinion she's the only one good enough to be prime minister, deffo not JC...politics like a chess game isn't it. Come June Checkmate.

I think they should of done this right after Cameron left no-one got to vote her in which I still think is wrong, if the pm walks they should call a general electric right way.

You're right Spellbinder, my mistake it was indeed Neville Chamberlain. I wasn't actually around when he announced it but have heard it many times and just assumed it was Churchill. Must do better!

You criticised someone's grammar with something that grammatically doesn't exist, a single non-capitalised word that wasn't an exclamation. I responded with the exclamation "Kettle!" short for kettle calling the pot black.

Bit of an anti climax after the media hype. I think she has been leaned on. Last throw of a dice to scupper Brexit
Will we see a "scupper brexit party" emerging? Maybe UKIPs time is not yet over till the fat lady sings.

My single word post ("have") was just that - a single word post. It wasn't meant to be a grammatically correct sentence so demonstrates no error at all. As a post it worked perfectly well - you seemed to understand it with no difficulty. Incidentally - the expression to which you refer should, I believe, be "the pot calling the kettle black".
