Mixed Reactions As Theresa May Quits As British Prime Minister

Image may contain: 1 person
It's the question that has kept British politics awash with rumours for months - when will Theresa May resign? Her Brexit plans failed again and again to impress squabbling MPs in parliament, but she soldiered on regardless. 

In an emotional sta tement outside her office in Downing St, Mrs May finally announced she was stepping down as prime minister. She will quit as Conservative party leader on 7 June but will stay in office until a successor is found.
Mrs May - who became the UK's second female prime minister in July 2016 - had been under sustained pressure from lawmakers opposed to her Brexit plans.
Why did she go? Mrs May had been struggling to get parliamentary support for the legislation
needed to implement the deal she had agreed with the EU on how the UK would leave the bloc.
Her deal was rejected three times by Parliament. Efforts to find a compromise with the opposition Labour Party also failed. On Tuesday, Mrs May made another attempt to convince members of parliament (MPs) to support her EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill - by offering a vote on whether to hold a second referendum, if the bill was passed.

A really simple guide to Brexit
The offer was designed to attract support from Labour MPs - but enraged many Brexit-supporting Conservatives. Members of her cabinet began openly opposing the bill, while party members called for her to resign. On Wednesday, one of her senior ministers, Andrea Leadsom, quit the cabinet, adding to the pressure.
On 24 May, Mrs May officially announced her resignation as Conservative leader, saying: "It will always remain a matter of deep regret for me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit."
"It is now clear to me that it is in the best interest of the UK for a new PM to lead that effort," she said.

Wait - hadn't she already promised to step down? And didn't her MPs already try (and fail) to oust her? Yes. The whole thing has been messy to say the least.
Back in December, Conservative MPs angry at her Brexit policy launched a vote of no confidence against Mrs May. Mrs May won the vote, and party rules prevented her opponents from launching another no confidence vote for a year.
However, opposition to her leadership continued.
In late March, after her deal was overwhelmingly voted down twice in Parliament, Mrs May promised Conservative lawmakers she would quit if they supported her Brexit deal. Unfortunately for her, that didn't work either - and the deal was rejected for a third time.
It seems like her offer of a vote on a second referendum was the final straw for many MPs - and as previously loyal ministers began openly opposing her, Mrs May decided it was time to go.
