Theresa May Resigns – Stands Down June 7. An emotional resignation. There were tears.
Theresa May said she will quit as Conservative leader on 7 June, paving the way for a contest to decide a new prime minister.
In an emotional statement, she said she had done her best to deliver Brexit. It was a matter of “deep regret” that she had been unable to do so.
Being prime minister had been the “honour of my life”, she said.
Mrs May said she would continue to serve as PM while a Conservative leadership contest takes place. The final words of her statement: It has been the honour of my life to be Prime Minister.
It means she will still be prime minister when US President Donald Trump makes his state visit to the UK at the start of June.
Mrs May announced she would step down as Tory leader on 7 June and had agreed with the chairman of Tory backbenchers that a leadership contest should begin the following week.
Well what do you think? About time? Should it have happened sooner?
