I found it somewhat amazing that May was allowed to make and sign the statement re CO2 emissions. She is now the caretaker whilst the Conservative Party decides who will be PM. Perhaps in hindsight, the party should have started running the leadership campaign whilst she was still PM. The 1922 Committee allowed her to remain in post so she could attend the D-Day celebrations, and at the time it was seen that it would have been harsh to not let her do so. However as is always the case, with hindsight she should have been made to pack her bags and leave No 10 straight away, and Andrea Leadsom as Leader of the House should have stepped in to hold the fort until a new leader was in place. It would be interesting to know if there are any rules, either from Parliament or the two main parties in regards to what would happen if sadly a PM died suddenly whilst in office.
