Andrea Leadsom, the Leader of the House, quit the cabinet yesterday as she does not support the PM’s position on Brexit.
The PM watched her actions closely and took detailed notes of bother Leadsom’s words and actions. While she still seemed mildly confused, insiders say she learned a lot from the example and might even be able to do it herself in the near future. “You can tell the PM is just as exasperated with the situation as the general public. We have suggested that she could try learning-by-doing, but she’d prefer to study Andrea’s example in detail before attempting to resign all by herself.”
Mrs Leadsom resigned because she said the new Brexit plan has, “elements I cannot support, that aren’t Brexit.”
The PM appeared puzzled by this until senior advisors explained that for some people, acting in a way at odds with their fundamental beliefs about democracy causes them to feel uncomfortable, and then they take action for example, resigning their political position. A spokesman said, “The PM is learning a lot by observing this resignation process and is building herself up to it gradually. First she has to understand why anyone would ever resign from a job – something that still confuses her.”
Mrs May said she was “sorry to lose someone of [Andrea Leadsom’s] passion, drive and sincerity.”
She went on to add, “Andrea has now become something of a role model to me as she has done something which I find so confusing – she has resigned. I hope I don’t mess it up too much when I follow her example.” Mrs Leadsom is said to have told the PM, “give it a go – what’s the worst that can happen, you accidentally don’t resign?… Wait I see the problem…”
