GOING WITH DIS-GRACE: Mrs May Says She Will Resign As PM… And Could Handover To New PM ‘Within Months’

AN EMOTIONAL Theresa May announced today that she would ‘fall on her sword’ and step down as Prime Minister – only if her Brexit deal was passed by Parliament. 

The Prime Minister who ‘Chickened out’ of a No Deal after TWO BLOODY YEARS telling us ‘No Deal’ was better than a ‘Bad Deal’,  told Tory MPs she “will not stand in the way” of the party having new leadership for the second phase of Brexit negotiations.

Mrs May told the 1922 Committee: “I am prepared to leave this job earlier than I intended in order to do what is right for our country and our party.”

“I know there is a desire for a new approach, and new leadership, in the second phase of the Brexit negotiations – and I won’t stand in the way of that.

“I know some people are worried that if you vote for the withdrawal agreement, I will take that as a mandate to rush on into phase two without the debate we need to have. I won’t – I hear what you are saying. But we need to get the deal through and deliver Brexit.

“I am prepared to leave this job earlier than I intended in order to do what is right for our country and our party.

“I ask everyone in this room to back the deal so we can complete our historic duty – to deliver on the decision of the British people and leave the European Union with a smooth and orderly exit.”

The PM admitted she’s made “mistakes”, adding: “I don’t tour the bars and engage in the gossip – but I do make time to speak to colleagues.”

Now, Boris Johnson has announced that he would back her deal.

Justice Secretary David Gauke said Theresa May made a “very touching, moving speech” as she pledged to step down.

Asked about a forthcoming Tory leadership contest, he told the BBC: “I think just at the moment there’s quite enough for MPs to be focusing on on Brexit, so I think really it’s what we should all be focusing on.”

He added: “What I hope is as a consequence of the process we’re going through at the moment, as a consequence of the Prime Minister making it clear that she will be around for phase one but not phase two of the negotiations, that the House of Commons can rally around her proposals.”
