In the UK the struggle for an armchair of the head of government joined the candidates-the conservatives. The voting members of the Tory party in the British Parliament was supposed to turn five candidates to four.
The list of applicants contracted to three. In the evening of the race there was the former defence Minister Liam Fox. He received the weakest support of party members. For a moment, the struggle ceased and the labour Minister Stephen Crabb. He backed the favorite, interior Minister Theresa may. She received more than half of the votes of MPs from the conservatives. Successor David Cameron will become the embodiment of historical divorce in the UK and the EU. The current Prime Minister refused to be the executor of the will of the people. And ironically, the one who more than others now claim his place louder than others advocated the maintenance of relations with Brussels. A third Challenger, former Deputy Minister of energy Andrew Leeds also have something to show. The local press has remembered that she once called the UK "a bad place to live".
In addition, Leeds was confident that the pound will not collapse as a result of withdrawal from the EU. But now the British currency against the U.S. dollar is at the level of 30 years ago. Election of successor to Cameron apparently convinced investors that the tories know where to lead the country. And certainty will emerge soon. The name of the new conservative leader will be announced in September. And when politicians begin the actual process of withdrawal from the EU now, nobody knows.
