Theresa May resigns

The fear of no-deal Brexit returns.

Theresa May resigns, facing a “full-scale cabinet revolt” as her plans for a fourth and final effort to get her Brexit deal through Parliament failed.

Theresa May has announced that she will resign as party leader on 7 June 2019. Even though the prime minister was set to present a “new and improved” offer on Brexit and bring it to a vote in the House of Commons, she faced an intense pressure to quit. May’s formal departure will lead to a leadership contest and a new prime minister to face the challenge of delivering Brexit.
