Premier League club Crystal Palace has brought comic relief to a dramatic general election by publishing a perfectly-timed response to a BBC reporter’s tweet.
The Conservative party secured 318 seats and was unable to reach the 326 seats needed to form a majority government.
Early this morning the Tories entered talks with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) with the hope of forming a coalition government, with Conservative leader Theresa May set to visit the Queen to propose the arrangement.
BBC Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg tweeted that “[May] will go to [the] Palace at 12:30.”
Step forward Crystal Palace.
Like most Premier League clubs, Palace are on the prowl for summer signings.
Judging from their reply to Kuenssberg, though, it looks like they refuse to comment on whether or not they are set to sign anyone — especially Prime Minister May, the embattled right-winger.
Just officially confirmed – she ll go to Palace at 1230
