UK media have been put on notice of a imminent address by Mrs May and a lectern has been placed outside No. 10, it may have been pre-emptive but all are standing by.

At 10:04 Mrs May came to the lectern, Friday 7 June is the date of Mrs May's resignation.

Theresa May has confirmed that she will be leaving the Conservative party on Friday 7th June 2019.
The question is,who will be the new prime minister.

I have to admit, in the end it was a rather sad spectacle and ending in tears, as it did, revealed just how deeply she had committed herself to the task, perhaps to deeply to see the way forward.

Boris as one of the likely successors may have to overcome further legal trouble before his campaign gets off the ground as he's just been summons over the false statements on the bus.

I think it would have helped her if she hadnt kept up the ´I-am-just-as-tough-as-Thatcher´-routine.
The ´stiff upper lip´ hasn´t done her much good, people like to see empathy, feelings, human behaviour in a leader.
Pity she has kept that side hidden.

Felt a bit sad for her at the end of the speech, but a new leader is needed now...

I honestly don’t have a clue, it could be any one of them. I just hope whoever it is, really helps the people of the U.K., listens,understands,to what is being said,
