Theresa May left parliament because of brexit, she tried to do what she thought was right for the country. She agreed with the public vote and thought leaving the EU would be best. However she did not succeed trying to convince the MP's over to her side, she tried 3 times.

In an emotional speech at 10 Downing Street, she stated that she had done her very best to get Brexit done and after those 3 attempts she felt a feeling of deep regret because she had been unable to do so.

Theresa May said she would continue to work as a MP while someone else would take her spot.

The party hoped someone would be in office by the end of July.

This meant that the would still be in office when Mr Trump came to visit the UK in June.

Mr Trump asked about the Prime Ministers announcement, he said: "I feel badly for Theresa. I like her very much. She's a good woman. She worked very hard. She's very strong."

In her speech she stated she had done all she could for her country and thought as she could not power on a new Prime Minister should come in to take her place and her effort.


  • She was in Parliament for 3 years
  • Brexit dominated her time in office
  • Before, she spent 6 years as home secretary

In my opinion on this, she could of stayed as she tried her best but you have to keep trying to succeed as she wasn't forced she gave up.
