Theresa May In Tears As She Announces Resignation To Quit On June 7

Theresa May In Tears As She Announces Resignation To Quit On June 7

Theresa May fought back tears as she announced her resignation date today after nearly three years of Brexit gridlock.

In a dramatic and emotional speech, the PM said she would quit her job on June 7 – after a UK State Visit by Donald Trump and D-Day commemorations are safely over.

Her exit will trigger a Tory leadership contest that gets under way next week. The rules are here while the frontrunners are led by Boris Johnson – who could steer Brexit in a dramatically harder direction.

 

The mutiny came after Theresa May unveiled a new compromise Brexit plan, including a possible second referendum, in a last-gasp bid to get Brexit through Parliament.

 

This has prompted Tory fury and forced her to delay a June 7 vote on the deal.

Mrs May met Graham Brady, the chairman of the Tories’ backbench 1922 Committee, this morning before announcing she will resign in two weeks.
