Remember on Wednesday, when we said that Theresa May was still the Prime Minister of Great Britain? Well...
Facing a cabinet rebellion, Theresa May announced on Friday morning her decision to leave office. She spoke briefly after meeting with Graham Brady, a powerful leader of backbench Conservative lawmakers.
Standing in front of 10 Downing Street, Mrs. May said it was in the “best interests of the country for a new prime minister” to lead Britain through the Brexit process. She announced plans to step down as the leader of the Conservative Party on June 7, with the process to replace her beginning the following week.
Brexit has now claimed its second prime minister and the Conservative Party will now select a new leader from a terrifying list of candidates that has Boris Johnson at the top, which...jfc.
Let's just try to enjoy the long weekend before we return to watching this Brexit shitshow, the endless Chinese trade war, farm bailouts, rising gas prices, the bond market, purposeful partisan gridlock in Washington, slow-moving European economic disaster and a suddenly very shaky equity market.
