May told that she’s assured that the given decision is in the best interests of here country.

Nevertheless, Michel Barnier, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator told that there's still much work to do, so the path might bring new challenges.

As Bloomberg told, British Pensions Secretary Esther McVey along with fellow cabinet ministers, such as  Penny Mordaunt and Andrea Leadsom might step down in the days ahead due to the fact they weighed up whether they can be in May’s cabinet to see through the new terms of Brexit.
