Recently, the Prime minister of Britain David Cameron resigned due to Britain exit from the EU which David Cameron had been campaigning against during the debate of Brexit. David Cameron stating “I will do everything I can as Prime Minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months but I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination.”
After David Cameron’s resignation there was much debate on who would be the next leader of the Tory party. Boris Johnson was at first the most likely candidate, but was unable to gain any support and had stopped his campaign to run for leadership. After the stepping down of Boris Johnson running for leadership the next obvious choice was Michael Gove but again struggled to gain much support and eventually leading him to step down for the leadership, with Theresa May gaining much more support from the Conservative party than Michael Gove as well as Andrea Leadsom gaining more support than Michael Gove, with most likely there being a female prime minister by Autumn.

Both Theresa May and Andrea Leadson, are pro Brexit but share different beliefs on what should happen next. Both politicians are pretty much opposites with their beliefs, but at least Andrea Leadson hasn’t campaigned to get rid of our Freedom of Speech.
Politician are known for being liars and so its hard to say which has the best policies, because when it actually comes to running the Tory party they will do whats best for the rich and the corporations not the working people of Britain!!
