DAVID CAMERON STEPS DOWN FOR THERESA MAY
One of the big questions following Britain’s shock exit from the European Union was who the new Prime Minister would be. David Cameron, who voted to remain, said in the wake of the referendum result that he should not be leading the country in this time, adding that Britain needed a leader who had voted leave. Initially, many thought the job would fall to eccentric politician Boris Johnson, one of the leading voices of the leave party, apart from Nigel Farage. However, Johnson recently indicated that he did not desire the position of PM. As a result, after deliberations, Home Secretary Theresa May was named the successor to David Cameron, who will step down on Wednesday. While May supported the Remain party, she was also a Euroskeptic. Furthermore, she said that Brexit will be a permanent decision; there will be no second referendum, no turning back.
