Theresa May’s Brexit statement was delayed and the reason couldn’t be more appropriate
Everyone was waiting for Theresa May to make a Brexit statement today and speculation swirled around about what she would have to say.
But the statement from Downing Street, expected at 1.45pm, was delayed and it pretty much summed everything up, really.
Statement being delayed by technical, not political issues – can't quite believe it but apparently the power isn't working properly in Number 10

I think it genuinely might be time to try turning the UK off and on again https://t.co/E2yknNNe1j

Metaphor alert: there’s currently no power in the room at No 10 where the PM is going to make her speech. Might delay things a bit.
