UK House of Commons leader Andrea Leadsom announced her resignation from the government on Wednesday, May 2nd, over Prime Minister Theresa May's handling of the Brexit crisis, reported AFP. 

The senior member of May's Conservative Party said in a letter to the British leader that she was quitting because "I no longer believe that our approach will deliver on the (2016) referendum result", which triggered Britain's efforts to leave the EU after four decades of membership.
