A very dignified statement from @theresa_may. Thank you for your stoical service to our country and the Conservative Party. It is now time to follow her urgings: to come together and deliver Brexit.— Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson) May 24, 2019
1. I wish Theresa May well. She and I had profound disagreements - not least on her handling of Brexit and her disregard for Scotland’s interests. However, leadership is tough - especially in these times - and she deserves thanks for her service.— Nicola Sturgeon (@NicolaSturgeon) May 24, 2019
Theresa May is right to resign. She's now accepted what the country's known for months: she can't govern, and nor can her divided and disintegrating party.— Jeremy Corbyn (@jeremycorbyn) May 24, 2019
Whoever becomes the new Tory leader must let the people decide our country’s future, through an immediate General Election.
It is difficult not to feel for Mrs May, but politically she misjudged the mood of the country and her party. Two Tory leaders have now gone whose instincts were pro-EU. Either the party learns that lesson or it dies.— Nigel Farage (@Nigel_Farage) May 24, 2019
Strong and brave speech by a Prime Minister driven by duty and service… she should be thanked for her tireless efforts on behalf of the country. Full statement below. pic.twitter.com/4XpEZIzrxh— David Cameron (@David_Cameron) May 24, 2019
