Theresa May Resigns – The Present and Future of Brexit

Theresa May

Even though it was Peter Wilding, the founder of Centre for British Influence Through Europe, an independent cross-party, pro-single market, foreign affairs think-tank market in the United Kingdom, who coined the word ‘Brexit’, it was Theresa May, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, who came up with ‘slow Brexit’.

On May 24, 2019, Theresa May resigned after intense political pressure from her failure to deliver Brexit. Despite being rejected thrice, May had asked the MPs in her cabinet to back her Brexit deal.

Israel: Robust Restraint is the “Secret Sauce” of Israel’s Success

Israel

Well, Israel is in the headlines just about every day. And usually, it’s not good.
