WATCH : May steps down in June, new UK PM in July
After defying political gravity for three years, Theresa May brought her tortured tenure as prime minister to a close on Friday.
"I will shortly leave the job that it has been the honor of my life to hold," she said outside Downing Street, her voice quivering in the morning sunshine. And with that, she's off -- or at least she will be later in the summer, once a new Conservative leader is elected.
Her statement sets up a few more hectic weeks of political drama in Westminster. For now, though, we're following May's lead and getting out of here.
