Theresa May had grand designs when she became the UK PM, as she would not just be about taking Britain out of the European Union, it would be about fighting “the burning injustice” within the country.
But Wednesday night, broken by BREXIT like her predecessor, Mrs. May conceded that she will not be able to do anything more to battle injustice, empower women, and build a more equal society.
Mrs. May told lawmakers from her Conservative Party that she will move out of #10 Downing Street as soon as BREXIT is delivered, leaving the cmplex business of building a future relationship with Europe to another leader. That paves the way for what will likely be a fierce succession battle in the Conservative Party.
It is a unpleasant moment for Mrs. May, who for 3 years has ploughed an often solitary path to get a BREXIT agreement with the EU. Following 2 strong defeats for her deal, she offered her premiership in return for getting the necessary support for her plan.
What she had anticipated as a moment of triumph, that being actually delivering BREXIT has turned into humiliation.
Like David Cameron before her, she will leave Downing Street earlier than planned, a victim of the same deep divisions in her party over Europe.
