It's a crowded field in the Conservative Party.
House of Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom, a top Cabinet member, resigned on Wednesday over Brexit concerns.
PM buys time, but the blame game has started in earnest.
Jeremy Corbyn says UK now does not have a 'functioning government'.
The announcement comes just a few weeks after France made a similar pledge.
For Britain the virtues of remaining appeared to this American to pale compared to the likely costs of continued subservience to Brussels. In a variety of admittedly imperfect ways Brexit promoted liberty, community, democracy, and the rule of law. In short, the good guys won.
I'm suffering from a severe case of the Brexit blues. Who to blame for the state of England, Albanian pimps, Polish builders, Russian Oligarchs or Romanian welfare scroungers? No, silly.
With Michael Gove out of the race, either Andrea Leadsom or Theresa May will be the next prime minister.
Gove's decision to vie for David Cameron's PM seat was called a betrayal by some.
The U.K.’s two main political parties are embroiled in drama worthy of Shakespeare. Here are the main players.

Rather, on June 23rd the UK will decide whether to remain, or whether to leave, the European Union -- the 28 member economic-political union headquartered in Brussels. But though the dates are different, and the specific issues in play are not the same, there are some disturbing parallels between what is now underway in the British Isles and what will likely be underway here after the party conventions in July. And because those parallels exist -- and because both electoral clashes are currently too close to call -- Americans would do well to both understand and to watch as the UK votes.
Are the new performance measures proposed by Michael Gove a solution to "teaching to a test," improving standards and the overall quality of learning for all students in the UK education system?
"When children need to solve equations in order to get more ammo to shoot the aliens, it is amazing how quickly they can
How do you boil an egg? It's not a ridiculous question. In fact, it's one some of the most well-educated and intellectual people out there would struggle with. They might be clued up on Chaucer and know Tolstoy to a T, but ask them about baking, boiling or frying and, quite often, they will be stumped for an answer.
