A breaking news story just flashed up on the BBC website saying that:

Andrea Leadsom expected to quit Conservative leadership bid

If true that could be bad news for Britain as that would leave the way clear for Theresa May to become Prime Minister immediately.

Currently Andrea Leadsom and Theres May are locked in battle for the leadership of the Conservative party and the job of Prime Minster. The current timetable means that woon't be played out until 9th Sept. Which in turn means that Brexit can not be acted upon until then at the earliest.

If Andea Leadsom withdraws, that timetable disappears and we can expect at see a lot of pressure on Theresa May to invoke article 50 ASAP.

Effectively we would lose a two month breathing space :(
