After two years of negotiations, the Brexit process remains paralyzed. The withdrawal agreement that Prime Minister Theresa May reached with the EU has been twice rejected by British lawmakers. Parliament will vote on that deal again today.
The Leader of the UK House of Commons Angela Leadsom said she can no longer support Theresa May's Brexit deal. The move comes amidst growing calls for the embattled prime minister to step down.
In an emotional address, Theresa May has announced she will resign as prime minister on June 7. The race to succeed her will likely start after a state visit by US President Donald Trump.
Theresa May came into power after the Brexit referendum, yet she never managed to unite the Conservatives. Before stepping down as prime minister, May was one of the most powerful women ever in British politics.
The beleaguered PM has thrown in the towel: She could not deliver on Brexit as promised. But her successor, too, will find that reconciling the Brexit dream with reality will be an impossible task, Barbara Wesel writes.
