It looks as if Theresa May will become the new PM after her main opponent, Andrea Leadsom, dropped out of contention just a short while ago. I know very little about May, so British readers are invited to weigh in.
This is what she said today. as reported by CNN:
“Brexit means Brexit and we’re going to make a success of it. There will be no attempts to remain inside the EU. No attempts to rejoin it by the back door. No second referendum. The country voted to leave the European Union and as prime minister, I will make sure we leave the European Union,” she said.
To paraphrase Dickens: God help us, every one.
