BREAKING NEWS: Theresa May will be PM on WEDNESDAY after Andrea Leadsom sensationally quits Tory race for No 10 – as Labour and the Liberal Dems demand a snap general election
Theresa May, right in Birmingham today, will be summoned to Buckingham Palace on Wednesday to be appointed as the successor to David Cameron, inset with Richard Branson at the Farnborough Air Show today, after Andrea Leadsom, left, ended her leadership bid. Mr Cameron emerged from No 10 this afternoon to confirm he would hold his final Cabinet meeting tomorrow and complete a valedictory PMQs on Wednesday before taking the short journey to Buckingham Palace to submit his resignation to the Queen.
The collapse of Mrs Leadsom’s campaign, the launch of which itself helped destroy Boris Johnson’s political hopes a week after the Brexit referendum, comes after a bitter weekend of infighting over her suggestion being a mother would give her an edge over Mrs May in No 10. On another extraordinary day in Westminster, the extraordinary moment Mrs Leadsom abandoned her run at No 10 came less than a week after she won a surprise second place in the ballot among Tory MPs.
It capped an historic 17 days following the EU referendum on June 23. Mrs Leadsom announced her bid to be Prime Minister on June 30 – the same morning as Michael Gove knifed Mr Johnson by launching his own doomed bid for the Tory crown.
