ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) David Cameron left Downing Street on Wednesday (July 13) for his final Prime Minister's Questions before travelling to Buckingham Palace to formally offer his resignation to the Queen. Cameron will be succeeded by Theresa May, who has been interior minister for six years and is seen by her supporters as a safe pair of hands to steer the country through the disruptive process of leaving the European Union. She will become Britain's second woman prime minister, after Margaret Thatcher. Cameron, who led the "Remain" campaign, announced the morning after the June 23 referendum that he would stand down, triggering a leadership contest in the ruling Conservative Party. The contest had been due to last until September but ended unexpectedly on Monday (July 11) when junior energy minister Andrea Leadsom, May's last rival candidate after others were eliminated, abruptly pulled out.
