The Prime Minister's Official Spokesman (PMOS) began the briefing by giving journalists a readout from this morning's Cabinet. The Prime Minister started off by acknowledging that this was not quite a normal day. The Prime Minister then confirmed that he would be going to his constituency, and he confirmed that he would be making an announcement about his intentions. The Prime Minister said however that he did not think this was the day for comments, although some indicated they might want to make comments, he said that could be left for another day since this was not the last that Cabinet would be seeing of him as Prime Minister.
