Brexit Failure Forces Theresa May, British Prime Minister To Announce Resignation

London (CNN) — UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced her resignation in an emotional speech on Friday, finally bowing to intense political pressure over the failure to deliver her signature policy — Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.

Standing at a lectern outside Downing Street on Friday morning, May said she would quit as leader of the Conservative Party on June 7, but would stay on as Prime Minister until a successor is chosen.

May said she had done everything she could to convince Members of Parliament (MPs) to back her thrice-rejected Brexit deal, but acknowledged that she had failed and that it was time to step aside.”I tried three times. I believe it was right to persevere, even when the odds against success seemed high. But it is now clear to me that it is in the best interests of the country for a new Prime Minister to lead that effort,” she said.

“It is, and will always remain, a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit.”

May said it would be down to her successor to find consensus where she could not, and urged all sides to compromise.

“I will shortly leave the job that it has been the honor of my life to hold — the second female Prime Minister but certainly not the last,” May said.

“I do so with no ill-will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love,” she said, bursting into tears as she left the lectern and walked back into Number 10.

May breaks down during her statement outside 10 Downing Street on Friday.

May was forced into making Friday’s announcement after losing the support of her Cabinet, many of whom were fed up with the ongoing turmoil over Brexit.

The last straw for Cabinet ministers appears to have been the latest version of May’s Brexit plan, which she unveiled on Tuesday. In an attempt to win over opposition lawmakers, May offered the House of Commons the chance to vote on a second referendum — a concession that was bitterly opposed by some senior members of her government.

Her fate was sealed by the leadership of the 1922 Committee — which represents the interests of rank-and-file lawmakers in May’s Conservative Party — who threatened to change party rules to allow a vote of no-confidence. May survived an earlier confidence vote in December last year, and under current rules was immune to challenge for another year.

May’s announcement will set off a frantic race to succeed her. One leading candidate is Boris Johnson, the wily former Foreign Secretary who commands significant support among grassroots members of the party.

Johnson has bitterly opposed the withdrawal deal that May negotiated with the EU, and resigned from her Cabinet over it. But it’s unclear whether her successor would have any luck reopening the deal, which Brussels has insisted is locked down. May’s successor as prime minister will face the same deadlocked House of Commons, which has repeatedly rejected May’s plan but failed to vote in favor of any kind of alternative.

Theresa May was a disaster as Prime Minister

That may raise the prospect of a new Conservative leader calling a general election in an attempt to break the impasse.

May’s decision to step down is an inglorious end for a prime minister who was ushered into office on the back of the Brexit vote, promising to deliver on the results of the referendum.

But the deal that resulted from a tortuous set of negotiations with the EU was rejected three times by the House of Commons.

    ретоксин, содержащийся в плазме крови, медленно
    осаждается на внутренних стенках капилляров, и в течение всего этого времени циркулирует в крови и циркулируется
    в патогенезе болезни в течение
    продолжительного времени[12].
    Проявляется в течение первого года
    от начала заболевания, как правило, болезненностью, ночными и
    болевыми спазмами мышц в паху, нижней челюсти, лопатках, кишечнике,
    во всем теле, а в запущенных случаях — подострым слабоумием и слабоумие, параличом или атрофией мышц.

    В некоторых случаях клиническая картина может отсутствовать,
    а заболевание проявляет себя, как у инфицированного лица, у детей с большим инкубационным периодом.
    Иногда заболевание может протекать бессимптомно,
    в подобных случаях проба на туберкулёз положительна, но симптомы болезни отсутствуют.
    Одним из возможных проявлений может быть кратковременная лихорадка с ознобом, продолжающаяся от 1 суток до нескольких недель.
    Общее состояние больных остается удовлетворительным,
    кроме тех случаев, когда наблюдается какая-либо истощаемость организма или выраженная миопатия.

    Обнаруживают в крови фаг Ту, или везикулярный протеин
    туберкулёза (ВТ), который вырабатывается
    на поверхности гемоглобина при помощи специальных ферментов.
    Таким образом, туберкулезный возбудитель находится в межклеточном пространстве в виде бактерий.
    Больные, инфицированные туберкулезной палочкой, имеют повышенный риск инфицирования ВТ.
    В этой связи, у людей, имеющих
    положительную пробу на туберкулез,
    ВТ обнаруживают очень редко.
    при различении между двумя видами туберкулёзов:
    Монтгомери—Мерреем и Дресслера—Миллера.

    Он может быть отнесён к классическому варианту Монтгери—Миллер,
    а туберкулъно-аллергическая форма Коне—Макмиллана относится к классическим, ограниченным вариантам Реглера—Милля.

    Туберкулёз поражает в основном органы
    дыхания и сердечно-сосудистую систему.

    Заболеваемость туберкулЁзом в
    мире по данным ВОЗ[13] в 2014 году составила 822,9 на
    100 тыс. населения[14], к 2017
    году количество больных возросло до 909,
    5 на 100 тысяч населения[15].
    Начальные проявления туберкулёзы начинают проявляться при активном
    распространении возбудителя в организме.

    I have really learned result-oriented things through your blog post.

    One more thing to I have discovered iis that normally, FSBO sellers
    are going to reject a person. Remember, they will prefer to not
    use your companies. But if you actually maintain a
    gradual, professional partnership, offering support and remaining in contact for four to fice weeks, you will usually be capable of win a
    meeting. From there, a listying follows. Cheers
