Theresa May will take part in her final Prime Minister's Questions at noon and deliver a parting speech outside Downing Street, before handing in her resignation to the Queen.

LARRY THE Cat is being tipped to occupy No.10 Downing Street longer than Boris Johnson despite the new Prime Minister's pledges regarding the Irish backstop.

Her effective deputy prime minister David Lidington also announced he was standing down from the Government.

But May is not cashing in - for now.

Shortly before, she led her final Prime Minister's Questions, where she appeared tearful, and where Conservative MPs offered her a standing ovation as she left the chamber.

Speaking outside the Downing Street, Johnson promised to "change the country for the better" adding that the United Kingdom would leave the European Union on 31 October "no ifs, no buts".

May responded to the protester, saying: "It think the answer to that is: "I think not", before continuing with her speech.

May, however, said Corbyn played "dirty politics" asserting "you should be ashamed", as the bad blood between May and Corbyn continued over Brexit even as she bid goodbye to Parliament as Britain's prime minister.

In the past, triad members have been linked to attacks both against pro-democracy movements and in support of them. He said some of them were villagers, and their occupations ranged from drivers and hawkers to renovation workers.

Earlier this year she overtook Gordon Brown, who clocked up 1,049 days as Labour prime minister between 2007 and 2010.

Ms May agreed to step down in May after failing to win parliamentary approval for the Brexit deal she agreed with Brussels. May resigned last month amid a mounting rebellion from within the Conservative Party against her Brexit plan.

The outgoing leader also offered a mild endorsement of Johnson, one of her most vocal critics over Brexit - having resigned from her Cabinet as foreign secretary a year ago over his firm opposition to her strategy for Britain's exit from the European Union (EU).

And she pointed out to Labour they were the last party in the Commons to have not had a female leader.

But she made clear her desire for Mr Johnson to seek a deal on Brexit, having previously warned about the risks of a no-deal departure. "Her refusal to contemplate a no-deal Brexit was what in the end destroyed her".

Philip May said: "That wasn't me". And if it looks as if we're heading that way.

Steve Bray has been ever-present around parliament since after the referendum, holding signs behind broadcasters on College Green, and more recently has been heard shouting anti-Brexit messages in the background of recent interviews surrounding the Tory leadership race.
