The current problem with Brexit has become recently a vital issue all over the world. The political situation in the UK has also changed. The biggest astonishment for the society was May’s breathtaking decision. There was no sign of that happening. Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party since 2016 made a speech saying she was stepping down as PM after she failed to deliver Brexit and lost the support of her own party.

Speaking in Downing Street, May said it had been “the honour of my life” to serve as Britain’s second female prime minister. She listed a series of what she said was her government’s achievements, including tackling the deficit, reducing unemployment and boosting funding for mental health. But May also admitted: “It is and will always remain a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit.” Outside Downing Street, she said: “I have done my best.” Her voice breaking, she said she would leave “with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love”.

Europe has claimed the career of yet another Conservative prime minister. After less than three years in office, Theresa May has suffered a catastrophic loss of confidence in her leadership among MPs and cabinet ministers. She has finally faced up to the demands from within her party and announced her resignation.
