    BENJAMIN HALL HAS MORE OF THAT FROM LONDON. HI YOU, BENJAMIN. >> HI, JULIE. SHE MADE THIS DECISION TO BE SICKO, BUT SHE WANTED TO WAIT UNTIL THE STATE VISIT WAS FINISHED, DD COMMEMORATIONS OVER, BEFORE STEPPING DOWN FORMALLY. THOSE EVENTS ARE NOW DONE ON THE PRESIDENT HAS LEFT THE U.K., AND NOW WHAT IS LIKE YOU TO BE VERY BITTER RACE TO SUCCEED HER CAN BEGIN. 11 CANDIDATES HAVE SO FAR PUBLICLY SAID THAT THEY WILL SEEK TO REPLACE HER, AND OVER THE NEXT SIX WEEKS THERE WILL BE A SERIES OF VOTES BY CONSERVATIVE MPs ONLY AS THEY WHITTLE DOWN THE CANDIDATES UNTIL JUST TWO REMAIN.
