Theresa May stepped down officially as Conservative Party leader today but will carry on as a caretaker PM and party leader until a sucessor is selected.
So what is her legacy ?
She was elected to lead the country out of the EU but failed miserably thanks to her party being completely at odds with her EU final ‘deal’. So she failed didn’t she ? But look at the economy which is in very good order with record numbers in employment apparently, so she has succeeded hasn’t she ? Was she all bad or can we take positives from her years as PM ?
I don’t think many will criticise her committment to getting a Brexit deal however unpopular it has proved to be. So would another elected PM and Conservative leader have fared any better ? For example, imagine if Boris had been elected instead of TM then would he have been stupid enough to call a General Election ? Would Boris have managed to get a Brexit deal through Parliament ?
How will TM be remembered ?
