There have been numerous opportunities for Theresa May to resign as Prime Minister and at times people have thought she would stand down.

But Theresa May has repeatedly made it clear that will not happen and she will see this Brexit deal (or no deal) through.

At this point it looks like Theresa May will still be steering the ship come March next year when we reach the Brexit deadline, but what could happen?

There have been so many twists and turns since the referendum 18 months ago that it’s been almost impossible to keep track – but here are some of the possible outcomes between now and March 2019.

No deal
Theresa May already has a hard job getting her Brexit deal across the line, something she will have to pitch to the government at some point.

If her deal fails and she is defeated by a heavy margin she may have no option other than to resign. This vote was originally meant to take place on Tuesday, December 11, but she cancelled this arrangement on Monday, December 10.

If she still doesn’t stand down then she may be ousted by her own party.

7/1 – Michael Gove

The current Environment Secretary is also a high-profile supporter of Brexit but, unlike many Brexiteers, he has stayed loyal to Theresa May.

7/1 – Sajid Javid

Home Secretary Sajid Javid backed remain in the 2016 referendum. He’s the son of immigrant parents who came to the UK with next to nothing, and went on to be a successful banker before becoming an MP.

10/1 – Jacob Rees-Mogg

The eccentric Conservative backbencher looks and sounds old-fashioned. People seem to like him but could be really be Prime Minister?
