Theresa May To ‘Stand Down Once Brexit Is Delivered’

That’s what she told Conservative MPs, on a day when the UK Parliament is voting on numerous Brexit proposals.

In a move that could increase the chances of her Brexit plan being approved, Theresa May has told Conservative lawmakers that she will step down once Brexit has been delivered.

According to a transcript of some of her remarks released by her office, here is what PM May said:

“I have heard very clearly the mood of the parliamentary 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 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 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,” she said. “I won’t — I hear what you are saying.”

There have been signs that some of the more hardline Brexit supporting MPs are willing to back May’s deal, and her willingness to step aside could increase the chance of it passing.
