May announced her date of leaving downing street


BREAKING News: The embattled Conservative leader announced she will leave Downing Street after the state visit of Donald Trump in the first week of June

She revealed she will stay on as Prime Minister until the Conservative leadership contest is completed.

Mrs May said: “It is and will always remain a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit. I have tried three times.

“It will be up to my successor to find a consensus in Parliament.”

She made the announcement following a meeting with the chairman of the 1922 Committee of Tory backbenches Sir Graham Brady.

That will fire the starting gun on a Conservative leadership election, which party members hope to have concluded by the end of July.

Boris Johnson is the clear favorite to be the next Prime Minister – see the candidates to be next Conservative Party leader here.

After a crisis-riven premiership of almost three years, May is due to meet the chairman of the powerful Conservative 1922 Committee, which can make or break prime ministers, to set out a timetable for her departure. 

Ministers expect May to make a statement by mid-morning. 

“The 1922 Committee are coming in with a revolver and basically pointing it at her head,” said Gus O’Donnell, Britain’s top civil servant from 2005 to 2011. “He (Brady) will leave the room and possibly leave the revolver in there.” 

May, once a reluctant supporter of EU membership, who won the top job in the turmoil that followed the 2016 Brexit vote, steps down with her central pledges – to lead the United Kingdom out of the bloc and heal its divisions – unfulfilled.
