Let's face it, now the weight's gone from her shoulders, she's going to stir things up for shits and giggles for her successor.
Houses of Parliament to be razed to the ground and replaced with a giant field of wheat?

May to warn successors that no-deal Brexit threatens UK's future

May will also unveil plans for a review into the role of Whitehall departments in the devolved nations, in a move expected to lead to increased direct spending by the UK government in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Yeah. That will really discourage Scottish Independence.
Has the row about where EU powers would be repatriated to been sorted? It's gone quiet lately.

By all accounts, Boris is all for giving Scotland full fiscal autonomy. Potentially giving Scotland a much bumpier economic ride, saving the rUK exchequer a few quid, and effectively chucking the SNP the keys to the car. It lets Sturgeon blame fiscal problems on still being in the UK, while killing off one of the main benefits of the union's existence, which effectively takes the economic argument off the table and wins them any future indyref they manage to sneak past Westminster (probably in return for propping up a future Labour govt.)

I've spent most of the last 48 hours fully immersed in Cricket Twitter but I really could not resist spreading these two absolute gems...

I don’t get cricket but wish I did considering the amount of joy the England team’s giving. Test match fans plan their time with great vigor incorporating boozing, sunbathing and picnics in with their fandom. And Tebbit’s cricket test can now be answered; everyone likes a winner.

At PMQs, I thought for a few brief seconds that Theresa May was going to say something nice about Magic Grandpa.

Then she stuck the knife in and told him it's high time he resigned as well.

Ian Austin agreed.

And so did I.

According to the Sunday Telegraph, Mrs May is believed to have included the former Croydon Central MP in her resignation honours list alongside around 14 other nominees.

But the move has infurated Tory Brexiteers who had repeatedly criticised Mr Barwell for backing the former Prime Minister's softer Brexit stance.
