LONDON – Britain's embattled leader Theresa May resigned her premiership Friday, although she will stay on as caretaker prime minister for now, amid a barrage of criticism and mounting pressure over her failed efforts to steer the nation out of the European Union in a manner acceptable to increasingly rebellious lawmakers.

May, 62, lasted three years in office.

Her last official day as prime minister will be June 7, after which her Conservative Party will start a process to replace her that could take several weeks or more. She will play a caretaker role until the new leader is chosen. Britain elects a party, not a candidate, meaning that there will be no immediate change to the party that is in power.

Congratulations to the first Muppet PM, Boris Johnson. *vomit emoji*

Don't be to sure.

If he wins the MP's ballot I'm sure the idiot tory public will support him but the majority of MP's won't support his no deal stance on brexit.

Reports are Torys will be vetoing any leader with a no deal stance.

Wonder how all this would be different if we had ended up with the Lib Dems PR-lite a few years ago.

European elections are weird. BP +28 but Torys and UKIP -31 (as of the time of writing this comment). Looks more like a replacement than some amazing landslide to me. Coupled with LD and Greens up on Labour and it shows it was a one issue vote.... and the country is still split.

TO quote Gallows: "Grey Britain is f*cking dead".

MEP elections have always been a protest vote.

The split between Leave and Remain parties in this election is the opposite of the referendum 49 - 51

Farage distancing himself from the extreme right personalities becoming vocal in UKIP was a smart move, but a one issue party won't carry that support into a general election. The Lib/Dems need to get their game on now.

Turn out was really low too - less than 40% which is pretty pathetic.

It's never been above 38.5%

last time it was 35.6% This time 36.7% so there was a slight rise.

I sense that Leavers would have more motivation to support the new Brexit party. Kinda like the Tea partyers of 2009.
