Just seven days after the European Union referendum madness and the favourite to be named new prime minister is Theresa May, who in fact campaigned against leaving the EU. Some of the leading newspapers which campaigned for a "yes" vote have given her their full backing. Boris Johnson, the former mayor of London, who was being tipped as a possible PM, is out. Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish chief minister, who had claimed that Scotland should be allowed to stay in the EU because a majority of people had voted "no", found that her plan was stalled by the Spanish who said that if Britain leaves, so does Scotland. The turmoil on the financial markets does appears to have stopped as well.
