Theresa May announces her resignation

The embattled Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Theresa May, announces her resignation as leader of the Conservative and Unionist Party in a tearful statement after failing to deliver her Brexit plan.

To remind, riding high in opinion polls throughout a lengthy honeymoon period, May promised to secure a positive Brexit deal from the European Union -- but threatened to walk away from discussions if she couldn't get one.
