“Sadly, I have not been able to do so — I tried three times,” she added. Her failure to do so will be her lasting legacy as prime minister.

“I believe it was right to persevere….it is now clear to me that it is in the best interest of the country for a new PM to lead that effort,” May said.

She held back tears throughout the speech, but her voice croaked and May was visibly tearful as she came to her conclusion.
