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.

So basically, we are almost back to square one. The favourite to be the new PM comes from the "stay" camp, Scotland has been told to think again and the financial meltdown has been stopped. Taking all this into account why did David Cameron resign? If May can get the top job, then Cameron should be able to stay. There are tough negotiations on the horizon so why not leave it to the person who was democratically elected by the British people? Cameron is obviously the best person for the job. Once the negotiations are completed then he can resign. Thankfully, after seven days of storm there now appears to be some calm. The next few weeks are going to be difficult but at least the rocky ship Britain appears to be steady.
