Under the headline “Theresa May will stay as Prime Minister and get the job done,” Rudd said the government would deliver Brexit under May’s leadership.

“She should stay,” Rudd wrote in the article that will appear in the newspaper on Friday. Rudd said May’s conference speech was at times a little hard to watch but added that the prime minister dealt with the interruptions with guts and grace.
