Theresa May to become next UK Prime Minister by default

LONDON — Come Wednesday evening, we’re set to have a new Prime Minister. David Cameron, confirmed today that by Wednesday evening he will formally step down as Prime Minister of the U.K.  The removal of David Cameron from office signals what most already expected, that, Theresa May, will take the lead as the first woman to lead the U.K since Margaret Thatcher.

Many have strong wielded May as the “nearest thing one could find closest to Margaret Thatcher”.  May’s only rival Andrea Leadsom dropped out of the race earlier this week.

“Theresa May carries over 60% of support from the party. She is ideally placed to implement Brexit and has promised to do so. I have concluded that the interests of our country are best served by the implementation of a strong leader,” Leadsom said.
“I am therefore withdrawing from the leadership election,” she said, adding that she gave May her “full support.”
