May says dis­cus­sion of her lead­er­ship `ir­ri­tat­ing'

Tulsa World - - Datelines -

LON­DON — Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May con­cedes that she gets “ir­ri­tated” by the de­bate over her lead­er­ship dur­ing the dif­fi­cult Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tions.

She told the BBC in an in­ter­view sched­uled to be broad­cast Sun­day that she is con­cerned for the coun­try's fu­ture, not her own, as talks about Bri­tain's up­com­ing exit from the Euro­pean Union con­tinue.

May faces a split in her Con­ser­va­tive Party, with some in­flu­en­tial fig­ures pre­fer­ring a more com­plete break with the EU than she is ad­vo­cat­ing.

“I get a lit­tle bit ir­ri­tated, but this de­bate is not about my fu­ture. This de­bate is about the fu­ture of the peo­ple of the U.K. and the fu­ture of the United King­dom,” she said.

The 26-year-old man from Re­vere suc­cumbed to his in­juries fol­low­ing the at­tack off New­comb Hol­low Beach in Wellfleet at around noon, Wellfleet Po­lice Lt. Michael Hur­ley said.

Joe Booth, a lo­cal fish­er­man and surfer, said he was on shore when he saw the man and his friend boo­gie board­ing when the at­tack hap­pened.

“I was that guy on the beach scream­ing, `Shark, shark!” Booth said. “It was like right out of that movie Jaws. This has turned into Amity Is­land real quick out here.”
