United Kingdom’s Prime Minister Theresa May has just resigned, following on from making a big mess out of the Brexit election results in the summer of 2016, due to various reasons. She was unable to give the British public her promised delivery on Brexit, numerous times, which should be seen as a massive failure on her part.
Theresa May will now step down on June 7th, following an emotional speech outside 10 Downing Street, which ended on a raw note of emotion. But quite clearly, despite her strange efforts through the political landscape and political maze of Brexit failure, she never acted accordingly to get Brexit over the line, no matter how hard that she tried.
She also made various questionable mistakes along the way, which made the public and Parliament lose confidence in her resolve.
After Theresa May’s resignation, it will open the door for a new Conservative leader, but the party has taken a heavy hit in the recent EU parliament elections, but with Nigel Farage’s new Brexit Party surging up in the polls, this leaves nobody in doubt about who and what, the British people really need and want in a leader going forward.
In her speech opening, Theresa May, said “I’ve done my best. I have done everything I can to convince MPs to back that deal … sadly I have not been able to do so. It is and will always remain a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit.”
The emotion at the end of the speech, shows Theresa May’s struggle with various factors and political entities in getting Brexit over the line, or what else, could it be? Clearly, Theresa May was soft in negotiations and was never pro-Brexit to begin with, making many question if she was she really onboard in the first place?
Scottish Conservative Leader Ruth Davidson tweeted: ‘The Prime Minister has always put country before party and, by announcing her resignation and setting out a plan for an orderly departure, she has shown that commitment again today.’
Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage tweeted after news of May’s intention to step down on June 7th, as follows:
‘It is difficult not to feel for Mrs May, but politically she misjudged the mood of the country and her party. Two Tory leaders have now gone whose instincts were pro-EU. Either the party learns that lesson or it dies.’
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt is widely tipped to take over the Conservative party leadership, but with Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg also standout candidates to take over as Prime Minister in the coming weeks.
‘Nothing in office became her like the leaving it’ An unquestionably dutiful person left with dignity and the Conservatives must now get on and deliver Brexit.

Everybody knew that Theresa May would step down today and as to what happens next is anyone’s guess? But, Brexit will happen, as was voted for by the British public unanimously back in 2016. Since Brexit means Brexit, and this move will open up to worldwide trade and great prosperity, without the bureaucracy of the European Union standing in the way.
So, will there be a hard Brexit, a soft Brexit, a fried Brexit, a sunny side up Brexit, or any sort of Brexit at all? Well, in judging from the Brexit Party surging ahead in the EU parliamentary elections, it is still Brexit that the people of the United Kingdom want, and it’s more than a shame that Theresa May couldn’t bring it over the line, as the votes of the British public had already decided in the elections of 2016.
Well, let’s now say what we’ve always said, and that’s quite clearly that Nigel Farage should one day, be the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, since he truly aligns with the British public, more so than any other previous politician that has ever taken the hot seat, at such a pivotal time in history.
