Tory leadership contenders step up campaign as Theresa May resigns

British Prime Minister Theresa May has officially stepped down as Conservative Party leader Friday.

It could well be that if that doesn't happen; the Brexit Party will actually continue the success it's been having, and could actually take over the mantle of Conservativism in the UK.

Meanwhile Conservative chairman Brandon Lewis has admitted that the party is going through a "difficult process" as two Tory MPs, including one Cabinet minister, are under pressure from local members to not stand for re-election.

"[She] will remain as acting leader of the Conservative and Unionist Party until her successor has been announced".

Johnson is one of several contenders - including Environment Secretary Michael Gove, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Health Secretary Matt Hancock - promising to go back to Brussels and make changes to the Brexit deal.

"Johnson may not deliver, and in my opinion he is likely to come up against exactly the same problems as May", said political expert Anthony Glees, who is also a professor from the University of Buckingham.

May was especially criticized by hard-line, pro-Brexit supporters within her own party. His new party stormed to the top place in the recent European Parliament elections.

Nigel Farage has delivered a letter to the Prime Minister, and the Tory leadership hopefuls, asking for a place at the Brexit negotiation table.

May will keep the keys to Downing Street until her successor is elected when she will retire as prime minister and hand over the reins of power.

His single-issue party suffered a setback after narrowly missing out on winning its first parliamentary seat, losing to Labour in a by-election in the eastern city of Peterborough on Thursday.

Markets await clarification of details to the U.S. Mexican deal
In a game of tit-for-tat, Trump added, China will lose simply because they have far fewer USA imports they can target. His announcement of a deal came after three days of Mexico-U.S. negotiations in Washington .

He said: "It's a sad day for the Conservative Party and the country to see Theresa May resign as leader".

"Farage and Johnson are competing to be the British version of (Donald) Trump".

The Conservatives weren't the runners-up in a constituency they have only lost control of three times since 1880.

Frontrunner Borris Johnson, former mayor of London and ex-foreign secretary, has said that he would like the U.K.to break from the European Union on October 31 "deal or no deal", according to the BBC, but would prefer to leave with a renegotiated deal.

Leader Richard Leonard has said he supports the policy and is confident members will back the plan.

"In effect there are only two real political parties now, Leave and Remain, and we could well be seeing a fundamental structural change in our party system as a result", he said.

May 21, 2019: May offers a concession to lawmakers, giving them the chance to vote on whether to hold a new referendum on the country's membership in the European Union - but only if they back her thrice-rejected Brexit agreement.

Corbyn has also gone to great lengths to stress that the key issue affecting the United Kingdom is not Brexit at all but rather the impact of nearly a decade of government austerity measures, which have led to a weakening of the welfare state, and led to widespread poverty in the country.

That would be seen by the Conservatives as the nuclear option, threatening the very survival of Britain's governing party.
