After the long wait for British Prime Minister Theresa May to resign, she has officially announced that she will resign on 7 June 2019.
When making her speech, she was overwhelmed with emotions trying to express her feelings only for her to burst into tears as she said, ‘I will finally leave the job that it has been the honour of my life to hold’
Speaking further, she said, “I have done everything I can to convince MPs to back this deal,” May said of her attempts to pass a Brexit plan through Parliament.
“Sadly, I have not been able — I tried three times,” she added.
Her failure to do so will be her lasting legacy as prime minister.
“I believe it was right to persevere….it is now clear to me that it is in the best interest of the country for a new PM to lead that effort,” May said.
She held back tears throughout the speech, but her voice croaked and May was visibly tearful as she came to her conclusion.
