I welcome the Prime Minister’s announcement that she is resigning as leader of the Conservatives and therefore as Prime Minister.
Her premiership will go down as one of the most disastrous in history. The Government has been rudderless for some time, trying to force through a failing Brexit plan whilst doing nothing for working people in this country.
She leaves it more divided, and more unequal.
It is in the interests of Sunderland, and the country, that whoever the Conservatives elect as their new leader sorts this Brexit mess once and for all. They can do this by letting the people decide what this country’s next steps are.
