"Two secretaries of state have resigned and still we are no clearer as to what our future relationship with our nearest neighbors and biggest trading partners will be". Her party is divided into hard-and-soft Brexit factions and she has the impossible task of keeping them on the same page.
But in reality, she will be at the mercy of her party.
