United Kingdom: 25 May, 2019
In a press conference the UK Primie Minister Theresa May said “I feel certain today as i did three year ago that, in a democracy, if you give people a choice, you have a duty to implement what they decide.I have done my best to do that.
I negotiated the terms of our exit and a new relationship with our closest neighbours that protects jobs, our security and our unioun.I have done everything I can to convince MPs to back that deal.Sadly I have not been able to do so.I tried three times.I beleive it was right to preserve even when the odds against success seemed high.But it is now clear to me that it is in the best interests of the country for a new Prime Minister to lead that effort.So I am today announcing that I will resign as leader of the conservative and unionist party on Friday 7 June so that a successor can be choosen.I will shortly leave the job that it has been the honour of my life to hold.The second Female Prime Minister, but certainly not the last.I do so with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the oppurtunity to serve the country I love”.
She means that she had done her best to deliver Brexit and it was a matter of “deep regret” that she had been unable to do so.
The Party officials said that we hoped that the new Prime Minister could be in place by the end of July.
