Theresa May has announced she is to stand down as leader of the Conservative party triggering a new leadership contest and paving the way for a new Prime Minister. The second female Prime Minister but certainly not the last.

However, Prisons Minister Robert Buckland expressed concern about a no-deal exit from the EU.

Tory MP George Hollingbery said Mrs May was disappointed in herself.

If only one candidate comes forward, he or she becomes leader, but a coronation appears unlikely given the crowded field of leadership hopefuls already jostling for position. "But leaving a legacy is not her style".

Digital Minister Margot James has raised questions over how representative the Tory membership set to elect the new party leader is of Conservative voters.

"As the Prime Minister, she could go to the House of Lords if she wants to go that route and carry on, or she could stay a Member of Parliament".

He rejected suggestions that a general election should be held, saying it would be "a disaster for the country" and would risk "Corbyn by Christmas". "Never forget that compromise is not a dirty word", he told her "Life depends on compromise".

U.S. president Donald Trump, who makes a state visit to the United Kingdom in early June, praised Mrs May.

He said: "Theresa May is a strong and dignified lady". Their task is now harder and their options more limited than the ones that faced her when she walked through the door of 10 Downing Street.

Her predecessor David Cameron described the resignation as a "strong and fearless speech". She chose to do something that some people were surprised at.

"It's for the good of her country".

Theresa May's deal is dead on arrival in the Commons - so much so that even if she is still in office when it is due to be debate in early June, she may not bother to put it to a vote.

"In fact, I'll be seeing her in two weeks".

Mr Hunt, MP for South West Surrey, heavily hinted he would join the race to replace Mrs May, telling his local newspaper the Farnham Herald: "I'll make the announcement on my own candidacy at the appropriate time". I am proud the Conservative Party are the only political party to have had a female Prime Minister and delighted we have had two female Prime Ministers.

Mrs May gave a statement outside Downing Street following a meeting with the Chairman of the influential Conservative 1922 Committee, Graham Brady at 9am.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove - who stood in the 2016 leadership race and may consider another bid - said Mrs May "deserves our respect and gratitude".

Theresa May: "If Parliament passes the Bill before the summer recess, the United Kingdom will leave the European Union by the end of July" Her predecessor, David Cameron, stayed on until Ms May was chosen to replace him it is widely expected that she will also stay in place during the leadership contest.
