Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “British PM Theresa May To Resign After Bungling Brexit”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May said she would resign from her position Friday after nearly two years of taking Great Britain on a bungled path toward Brexit.

May said she would continue in her role until a new prime minister was selected, though she will step down as the Conservative Party leader on June 7.

“I believe I was right to persevere, even when the odds against success seemed high,” she said in her announcement. “But it is now clear to me that it is in the best interests of the country for a new prime minister to lead that effort.”

May survived two votes of no confidence — one from her own Conservative members of Parliament (MPs) in December and another from the House of Commons in January. But her time ran out as the U.K. failed to separate itself from the European Union after delaying Brexit twice.

May took the helm July 13, 2016, just weeks after the country voted in a referendum to leave the EU, even though May herself was a “remainer” and wanted the U.K. to stay in the EU.
