No One Needs Fear Decision to Leave EU: Leadsom
First there were five. Now there are three. With Liam Fox eliminated in the opening ballot and Stephen Crabb dropping out, the momentum is with front-runner Theresa May in the race to become the next U.K. prime minister. The next round of voting in the contest to succeed David Cameron as leader of the Conservative Party is on Thursday, and Britain will have a new prime minister by Sept. 9. Andrea Leadsom, 53, was a prominent advocate of Brexit during the referendum campaign and has the backing of Boris Johnson. She won 66 votes in the first ballot of Tory lawmakers. Claims about her successful career in the finance industry before entering Parliament, which included stints at Barclays Plc and Invesco Perpetual, have come under fire for being misleading, allegations she has denied.
