Theresa May has announced her resignation as Tory leader UK on June 7th to be replaced as prime minister as soon as the Tory party decides on her replacement.
Theresa May became prime minister in unfortunate circumstances with UK divided following the Brexit referendum.
Her misfortune was compounded by the 2017 general election that resulted in her government becoming a minority goverment dependant on DUP (Democratic Unionist Party) support.
Turmoil followed with repeated failed attempts to agree Brexit.
Continuing instability is expected. The Conservative party is divided, Brexit is toxic and the Labour party is desperate for a general election and consequent election.
