She has definitely copied the 'let's stand in front of a podium and make out there's to be an address to the nation Churchill-style' from Trump. I knew straight away it would be delayed about half an hour with BBC's Ben Brown bobbing about at the door of No. 10 Downing Street trying to drum up some suspense - as May intended - and that as usual it would be an complete non sequitur of no substance.

You could see it in May's demeanour. Huh, you thought I was going to announce my resignation or a general election, idiots. Wrong again! Blah blah blah. A few meaningless soundbites, Huff of the shoulders. Turn and walk off pronto.
