Brexit: Pressure on Theresa May to quit

From Morning Report, 7:48 am on 23 May 2019

Pressure is mounting on the British Prime Minister Theresa May to step down, with another of her senior government members quitting today over Mrs May's latest Brexit deal.

Leader of the House Andrea Leadsom stepped down, saying she doesn't think Mrs May's proposal will give Britain true sovereignty.

And she is particularly opposed to plans for a second Brexit referendum, calling it dangerously divisive and a threat to the UK remaining a union of countries.
