Theresa May to quit in MONTHS? Shock claim PM will step down after Brexit concludes

PRIME Minister Theresa May is looking for her own political exit after leading Britain through a successful ‘divorce’ from the European Union, it has been claimed.

Some of Mrs May’s own ministers have hinted she is reluctant to call a General Election post-Brexit as she has no plans to stay on in her current job.According to Mail on Sunday columnist Dan Hodges, an unnamed minister labelled her as a “transitional PM’, with another claiming she’s all but ready to ride off into the sunset the moment her parliamentary term is over.

That minister is quoted as saying: “She’ll be hailed as the person who saved the nation from its worst crisis since the war, then go off and enjoy her retirement with husband Philip.”

Checking if this theory is general consensus across the board, Mr Hodges claims he ran it past others, with one saying: “She’ll fight an Election, then be gone in 18 months.”Mrs May is arguably one of the most popular Prime Ministers in British history, with her approval rating a solid 54-points ahead of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, and has won by-elections that were once solidly out of Tory reach.

Latest opinion polls show the Tories have, since Mrs May took over the top job, powered into a commanding lead over Labour.

Research also found that more than three times as many voters prefer Theresa May in the Prime Minister’s post compared to Jeremy Corbyn.The Prime Minister was also the only person in a list of British and overseas politicians to secure a performance rating of over 50 – on a scale where zero denoted “terrible” and 100 “excellent”.

She even ranked ahead of German Chancellor Angela Merkel who voters gave 46.1 rating to.

Mr Corbyn had a success score of 29.3 per cent, Lib Dem leader Tim Farron 28.6, US President Donald Trump 23.5 and Ukip leader Paul Nuttall 19.6.

    It is about time politicians behaved like public servants and served the public, not their own agendas. Time to stand up for the people who voted leave and stop pandering to the idiots in Brussels. The EU’s days are numbered anyway as more and more lightbulbs switch on in the heads of the voters in other member countries as they, at last, see what this whole corrupt ‘club’ is doing to them, the regular folk.
    If PM May decides to retire she, unlike thousands of women, will of course be able to claim all of her pensions much earlier than her sisters who have to work far longer than they thought. It’s way past time for an overhaul of MP’s pensions and perks to bring them inline with the rest of us.

    This article only serves to confirm what I have believed since May took over as PM. She has now turned 60, attained her ambition of being PM and will not care about being re-elected in 2020 at the age of 64. That she will betray much of what the referendum vote to appease the Europhile wing of the Tory Party. I believe that was the deal when she was ‘shooed’ into the post unopposed whilst all of the other contenders for the position quietly drifted away despite being a completely inept and inefficient Home Secretary.

    She is constantly gainsaying her Brexit team and already has hinted at a ‘transitional’ arrangement that will benefit the EU but keep us in the EU as far as paying into their coffers and continued immigration for years to come. The EU appears to be doing nothing about planning for their forthcoming austerity and is still throwing away taxpayers money on projects that are nothing to do with Member States. It is NOT Britain’s business to be making things easier for the EU, it is entirely their responsibility. If they choose to make matters worse for themselves by making trade difficult between themselves and Britain, then that is their loss and will only serve to make their problems worse.

    British Voters knew exactly what they were doing when they voted to leave. After all, everyone kept telling us that we would be leaving the single market and the Customs Union. Even the more than £9 million that Cameron stole from us for his propaganda told us so.

    May must not be allowed to betray us.
