Hours after she announced her timetable for departure, Theresa May says that she will not be able to leave Downing Street on schedule.
The Prime Minister announced this morning that she will be standing down on June 7th.
Mrs May, who has an otherwise excellent track record for leaving things on the appointed date, has told the 1922 Committee that she now won’t be able to leave until August.
The delayed departure is thought to be the result of failed negotiations with the removal firm hired to move the May’s furniture back to their family home in Maidenhead.
Negotiations with movers, Seaborne Removals, started well but quickly collapsed when the firm revealed that they didn’t have any vans, drivers or indeed boxes.
Despite knowing that she would inevitably have to leave Number 10 it appears that Mrs May has made no preparation for leaving other than appointing Seaborne.
In a surprising show of support for the outgoing PM, Tory and Labour ministers have joined forces and offered to help the Mays vacate Number 10 over the weekend.
Arriving at Downing Street in a 10-tonne truck, Boris Johnson was initially thought to have saved the day until it was revealed that the truck was full of his furniture.
