"I came to know Theresa May as a politician of principles and resolve who led her country at a time of great uncertainty."
Nigel Farage, Member of the Brexit party, accuses Theresa May of an error of assessment. "Politically, she has not really judged the mood of the country and her party," he says.
The rating agency Moody Warns after Theresa May's resignation announcement before a tough Brexit. Their decision has increased this risk, says Moody analyst Sarah Carlson. The uncertainty surrounding Brexit weighs on investment and personal decisions and therefore hinders economic growth.
the The economist Mark Dowding The asset manager BlueBay Asset Management also sees hope in a withdrawal agreement between the EU and the United Kingdom falling with the May departure. "Brussels has no intention of renegotiating with a Brexit extremist, so the likelihood of a Brexit lasts again significantly."

As a result, the risk of new elections increases".
