On May 24, In a tearful speech outside Downing Street she said: I will shortly leave the job that it has been the honour of my life to hold – the second female Prime Minister but certainly not the last. I do so with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love. She leaves a difficult task for whoever takes over from her as she and x27;s been unable to deliver even the first stage of Brexit. The PM failed three times to get her deal passed through Parliament as MPs rejected it again and again.
