Skip to comments.UK PM Theresa May announces resignation amid fury over Brexit handling
Posted on 05/24/2019 5:45:46 AM PDT by BenLurkin
Mays announcement came the morning after Brits went to the polls to vote in the European Parliament elections, with Britain only participating due to its departure from the E.U. being delayed until October. Full results are not expected for days but polls suggested her Conservative Party were expected to be punished severely for the governments handling of Brexit, with polls suggesting the Tories could receive just single-digit support.
A YouGov poll for The Times of London published Wednesday found that the Tories would come in fifth place, with just 7% of the vote, while the newly-formed Brexit Party was predicted to cruise to victory with 37%.
Mays position, under siege for months, became untenable earlier this week after she announced a new Brexit deal on Tuesday. That new compromise included a number of fresh measures to try and bring MPs round to her enormously unpopular withdrawal agreement, which had been voted down three times by Parliament.
That agreement, negotiated with the E.U. last year, had been criticized by Brexiteers who claim it does not properly secure Britains exit from the bloc, and opposed by anti-Brexit lawmakers who are seeking a second referendum.

Farage just got his second Prime Minister scalp. First Cameron, then May.
Gee that’s too bad.
She could get a job in Merkel’s administration as her b.tch.
may was a loser...is a loser...and always will be a loser. These globalist scum ALL need to resign.
That was her problem, she offered deal after deal that were no deals. Just exit for crying out loud.
It’s a sad state of affairs that May was known as “conservative.” Good riddiance to the m*slim-enabler.
This woman is obviously as smart, qualified and talented as Hillary Clinton is at everything.
I'm surprised May isn't Ruler of the Universe.
Trump will undoubtedly have a few Spygate questions for her when they meet. Time for some answers.
Good. It was obvious she was a pro-EU globalit, dragging her feet to stop the will of the people.
And May will be replaced with...whom? Is there one person among the Tories in the House of Commons who is truly a conservative in the mold of Trump or Pence or Cruz or DeSantis?
Imagine, my fellow Americans, a parliamentary government here, with PM Nancy Pelosi going to Japan this weekend to meet with Emperor Naruhito. Then remember on Monday, as we think of those who have died for our freedom, particularly those who died in the Revolution, to rid us of just such a government.
If Boris Johnson becomes PM, then Britain is saved for the time being; he is a friend of PDJT and may even govern in the same way.
If Jeremy Corbin is elected, then Britain is finished and will soon become fully Islamicized. He hates both Jews and Israel.
Good. Shes a globalist/Yurp traitor to her country. She did her level best to sell out the British people to Brussels and thwart the democratically expressed will of the people. The sooner shes out the better.

I believe the favorite to replace her is Boris Johnson.
Dominic Raab seems most likely to be next PM. Boris Johnson will compete for the same vote.
Jeremy Hunt is the likely Establishment candidate.
There are others, but none are American-style Trumps.
Party insiders will give the broader party regulars a choice of two candidates.
Can Ronald Reagan Trump make Britain the 51st state?
