Theresa May to resign as prime minister - BBC News 4.5
Theresa May has said she will quit as Conservative leader on 7 June, paving way for a contest to decide a new prime minister.

In an emotional statement in Downing Street Mrs May said she had "done my best" to honour the 2016 EU referendum result.

It would remain a matter of "deep regret" that she had been unable to deliver Brexit, she added.

But a new PM was "in the best interests of the country".

I feel sorry for her. She stepped in during a very difficult time. I don’t necessarily agree with everything she’s done/ hasn’t done. However she is a good person.

Theresa May was backed into a corner by a house of commons and politicians that refused every proposal, working against her instead of working with her. Often wonder how much this country could achieve if they worked together instead of jostling for the top spot, well they have got what they wanted now, hope they are all pleased

she's not a bad PM, She became the PM at the wrong time. Same would've happened to any PM.
