Apparently that time is only reserved for most serious of occasions...

Twitter rumour mill going in to overdrive.

The source btw is Laura Kuenssberg.

What are the rumours?
I mean even roughly, royal family? North Korea? Brexit?

ShowMePotatoSalad Tue 18-Apr-17 10:03:47

All of the above from what I've seen so far. Also big rumour is a snap GE.

NoCapes Tue 18-Apr-17 10:05:39

What's a snap GE?

TheFifthKey Tue 18-Apr-17 10:05:57

Obviously a GE is the best we can hope for here. Ugh, I hate these sorts of things. They never turn out as bad as you think though.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 18-Apr-17 10:05:58

Maybe the Queen's pregnant.grin.

TheFifthKey Tue 18-Apr-17 10:06:18

General Election, NoCapes.

General Election

SapphireStrange Tue 18-Apr-17 10:06:54

General election, called outwith the usual 5-year schedule.

Surely not?!? Or has she used her walking hols in Wales to reflect on her life and realise that actually she CBA with dealing with North Korea/Brexit/NHS/Trump etc etc after all?

I can't say I'd blame her.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 18-Apr-17 10:06:58

SGE=Snap general Election

NoCapes Tue 18-Apr-17 10:07:56

Ah I see, thanks

Well looking at the other rumours let's hope it is an election
Or of course the Queen is pregnant grin

Harry leaving the royal family to go off and get married?

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 18-Apr-17 10:08:15

Or David Cameron's back. Arrrgggghhhhh

nauticant Tue 18-Apr-17 10:08:22

I'm hoping it'll be the announcement of another bank holiday to be introduced into the calendar.

alltouchedout Tue 18-Apr-17 10:08:31

If she wants a GE doesn't she have to get 2/3 of parliament to agree now we have the fixed term parliaments act? Can she get 2/3 of MPs to agree?

originalbiglymavis Tue 18-Apr-17 10:10:11

Eh what? Where did you hear this? Any flags at half mast?

ParadiseCity Tue 18-Apr-17 10:10:27

Ooooh. I love Laura Kuensberg (sp) - she seems so clever and invincible.

Maybe TM is going to say something about North Korea? I can't believe she's going to call a GE. (Waits to be totally wrong)

Laska5772 Tue 18-Apr-17 10:10:39

Queen perhaps?

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 18-Apr-17 10:10:49

She's going to give us all 1 million Pound each. You never know your luck in a big city. grin

elvisola Tue 18-Apr-17 10:12:45

Prince Phillip I think, unfortunately

I thought Prince Philip, but would that come from the PM?

TheFairyCaravan Tue 18-Apr-17 10:14:23

Oh fucking hell. I hope it's not anything to do with the military, that'll tip me right over the edge this morning.

originalbiglymavis Tue 18-Apr-17 10:14:43

Would they wait for a death? Can someone please look out the window and see if tower bridge us up? Isn't that The Signal?
Have we decided war with anyone?

PunjanaTea Tue 18-Apr-17 10:14:53

Wouldn't it be madness to have a GE now when there are only 50 weeks of Brexit negotiations left.
