Britain set for a woman PM

Tory leadership hopeful Andrea Leadsom, who opposes gay adoption rights, has denied telling a newspaper that she had an advantage over rival Theresa May because she has children.

Ms Davidson told the BBC's Newsnight programme that Mrs May had the "vast majority" of the parliamentary party behind her, and had "huge support" in all parts of the United Kingdom, including among the Scottish Conservatives.

Cameron announced his resignation after unsuccessfully campaigning for Britain to vote "remain" in the June 23 referendum that asked voters whether the United Kingdom should stay in the European Union.

'This vote shows that the Conservative Party can come together - and under my leadership it will.

Britain has been in something of a leadership crisis following the whole Brexit thing.

It is now certain that the victor will go on to become Britain's second female Prime Minister after Margaret Thatcher. Justice Secretary Michael Gove dropped out of the race after receiving only 46 votes, leaving May and Leadsom in a head-to-head battle for the post that David Cameron is vacating.

THERE is an all female race to be the next Prime Minister after the final two candidates to become the Conservative Party leader were picked.

Conservative party members will vote to decide whether May, who is ahead in polling, or Leadsom will become the second woman ever to lead Britain after Margaret Thatcher, who stepped down in 1990.

In a speech to supporters, Leadsom vowed to "banish the pessimists" anxious about Brexit, and argued that that Britain could retain free trade with the European Union while simultaneously controlling immigration - an unrealistic prospect, according to critics. Coe says he will be pressing the next British government to make sure that money for sports still flows from national coffers.

As Mr Gove spotted reporters near his house, he flashed a smile and said: "morning, or I should say afternoon".

Mrs May said: "Now it is time for me - and my team - to put my case to the Conservative Party membership". "There must be no attempts to remain inside the European Union, no attempts to rejoin it through the back door and no second referendum".

If elected, May would be tasked with the hard job of negotiating the U.K.'s exit from the EU.

He met bank leaders from domestically based banks on Tuesday. May is the home secretary and Leadsom is junior minister of energy.

Results of the latest round will be announced late Thursday afternoon.

About two thirds of Tory members voted to leave, but a higher proportion saw a candidate's leadership credentials and vision for Britain as the most important factor, Professor Curtice said. The victor will be declared on September 9.
