Business Reaction To Theresa May’s Speech Setting Out A Timetable For Her Departure As UK Prime Minister.
Prime Minister Theresa May
CBI Director-General Carolyn Fairbairn
Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General, said:

“The Prime Minister could not have worked harder to deliver a Brexit deal that protects the economy. She leaves office with the respect of business.

“But her resignation must now be a catalyst for change. There can be no plan for Britain without a plan for Brexit. Winner takes all politics is not working. Jobs and livelihoods are at stake.

“Business and the country need honesty. Nation must be put ahead of party, prosperity ahead of politics. Compromise and consensus must refind their voice in Parliament.

“We call on politicians from all parties, on all those ambitious to lead, to take this chance for a fresh start.”

Meanwhile, Unite called the PM’s departure as the ‘only honourable’ way forward.

Unite General Secretary Len McCluskey
Unite General Secretary Len McCluskey said: “Theresa May's announcement today underscores what a mess the Conservative party is and that this party is actually now incapable of governing.

“The shambolic handling of Brexit, the yawning inequalities in this country, our fraying public services and our once-proud manufacturing industry sliding into decline are the legacy of this prime minister and her woeful Tory government.

“It is a grave insult to the people of this country that our fate now lies in the hands of scheming Tory MPs and a few thousand Tory members.
“This farce has to end. The challenges before our country are too great and the need to restore fairness to our society too urgent, they are ill-served by this pantomime. A general election now is the only honourable and sensible way forward”
