LOL Theresa already giving directions to the new incoming PM. The UK doesn't have to rescind or extend Article 50. This is the reason she will not be PM by dinner time GMT.

Fundamentally , there is still alot of uncertainries whether Theresa or the new PM will continue the brexit.  It is the non compliance to EU demand of the boarders , where UK is not willing to givin will determine the same outcome

Pbrain Trading . Theresa wanted the job and couldn't deliver on Brexit. The only 2 options I see are a no-deal Brexit or a Corbyn leadership. I would take the no deal and force the EU to start negotiating in good faith. The Queen has declared that the UK is leaving the EU, as such the UK is leaving the EU. End of story.
