May Day; British PM will quit if Brexit is approved

Timothy Birdnow

British Prime Minister Theresa May will resign if Brexit deal goes through.

According to CNBC:

British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced she will step down as the leader of the United Kingdom if her Brexit deal finally secures a majority in parliament, allowing a successor to take the lead on future negotiations with the European Union.

"I am prepared to leave this job earlier than I intended in order to do what is right for our party and country,” she said at a meeting of a powerful lobby of Conservative lawmakers known as the "1922 Committee,” according to media reports.


U.K. lawmakers have twice already refused to sign off on May’s Brexit "Withdrawal Deal” and the first rejection marked the biggest U.K. Parliament defeat in modern political history. It’s expected she will attempt to bring a third vote to Parliament in the coming days.

May’s timetabled departure is seen as key for securing a switch in votes from the right-wing Euroskeptic element in her party who want a different leader to take the reins for the next stage of negotiations with Europe.

Heavy jostling between Brexit-supporting Conservative lawmakers to become Britain’s next prime minister is now predicted

If you want my opinion - and you're getting it anyway, since it's my blog - May has been trying to kill Brexit with half-hearted efforts and an emphasis on a "soft" Brexit, one so soft as to be merely a kind of minor autonomy. Europe still will tell Britain how they can handle their economy, and how to run their country.

May is from the Establishment, and they are internationalist wherever they are to be found. Patriotism is as disagreeable to them as swimming in a septic tank. I think PM May has done a terrible disservice to Britain and she should quit now.
