Is Theresa May Stepping Down?

Is Theresa May Stepping Down?by

It was the political decision that almost destroyed a career – one which really should have bolstered her government majority in the UK, but did the opposite – and British Prime Minister Theresa May has spent recent weeks out of the limelight has she has enjoyed time away on vacation – but as the summer starts to peel away into September, the British press appears keen to return to talk of just how long May will remain at the top of UK politics. Talk of unrest among Conservative MPs over her leadership – bolstered only by a hasty DUP alliance to flesh out her majority – May has hardly been the most praised politician in recent months. Since the snap election this spring which should have ideally seen the Prime Minister gain seats as opposed to lose them, many people on both sides of UK politics have been looking at their watches to see just how much time May has left on the clock.

However, the leader has remained resolute – that she will be the Prime Minister that oversees Brexit – which is due to occur in March 2019. Various rumors in the UK press have stated over the weekend that May has allegedly pencilled in a ‘resignation date’ of August 30th 2019 – triggering another General Election and an entirely new leader in a post-Brexit Britain. Such rumors come as it is believed that May has played host to 15 high profile Conservatives at her country residence of Chequers, where political pundits are claiming she is brokering a deal of sorts with her party in an effort to quell rumblings of a leadership challenge. The Conservative Party certainly doesn’t want to have to go to General Election again – while the rival Labour Party, having seen shock renewed energy this Spring – is keen to take the reins as minority government.

It’s unlikely the public will want another General Election so soon – but the turnaround in opinion polls on May and her rival Jeremy Corbyn shows just how arguably calamitous the Conservative PM’s campaign was – with the UK very much divided, still, on Brexit and on who they want to lead the country. Downing Street, meanwhile, has denied that such as ‘leaving date’ for May exists – at least according to reports from the Daily Mail – but in the meantime, it will be interesting to see how Brexit unfolds, and where May’s public perception and credibility can go from here. Will we see a u-turn in public opinion? Let’s wait and see.
