Brexit POLL: Which Remainer plot was most significant in delaying Brexit since 2016? VOTE

His 2016 resignation sparked a leadership battle in the Conservative Party, with Theresa May finally replacing Mr Cameron as Prime Minister in 2017, making her the first female Prime Minister since Margaret Thatcher.

But Mrs May’s leadership at Number 10 was to be dominated by tortuous negotiations in Brussels and vicious infighting within Tory ranks over the terms on which the UK would leave.

Mrs May, a well-known Remainer, was left with no option but to resign after a Remainer Cabinet revolt over her Brexit plan and the delay of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB) after her deal was rejected twice in the Commons.

The Tory leader’s leadership was left in tatters following the resounding rejection of her Brexit deal, which offered MPs a vote on whether to hold a second referendum and a choice which could leave the UK in a temporary customs union with the EU – both measures which were unacceptable to Tory Eurosceptics.
