Theresa May to be Prime Minister after Andrea Leadsom drops out of Tory leadership race

Theresa May is set to become Britain’s next Prime Minister after her internal party Andrea Leadsom dropped out of the Conservative leadership race.

Ms May will likely be elected unopposed to the Conservative party leadership, subject to her formal confirmation by the Conservative party board and chairman of the Tory 1922 committee.

Like Cameron she’s Wishy one day and Washy the next.

    Does she has a good leadership ? Well I hope she does , Britain is following the steps of the empire of Rome, a “Big Colapse”

    • I don’t follow these things in minute detail, but I think that it is a fairly good bet that she does not have a good leadership.

    Brexit was a heartening start, but this is the worst possible news (apart from Sadiq Khan being elected as Prime Minister).
    Britain is going down—not with a bang but a whimper.

  • We must always hope, Maurixio. Otherwise we must despair. But in this case, I fear there may be no basis for optimism.

    Judging by that first paragraph it looks like the Independent has been hiring former Guardian proofreaders. I guess they work cheap.
