Brexit deal: Theresa May will resign as United Kingdom’s Prime Minister if her Brexit deal is passed in Parliament, a lawmaker of her party has said. The British Prime Minister made the remark while meeting her own MPs on Wednesday afternoon. Theresa May’s Europen Union divorce deal has been defeated twice in the past by embarrassingly high margins. May’s announcement is being seen as her last-ditch attempt to persuade rebels in her Conservative party to back her. However, May is yet to announce a date for her resignation but she will certainly go, reports said.
But rebels in her party have refused to support her deal because they want a cleaner break.
