    Those who didn't follow UK Brexit news Wednesday evening, woke up to a number of developments and announcements on Thursday, most of them accompanied by hundreds of memes on social media.

    The UK Prime Minister Theresa May has vowed to sacrifice her job to pass the Brexit deal during a Wednesday meeting with the 1922 Committee, a parliamentary group consisting of all Conservative backbencher members of the UK lower house.

    "I am prepared to leave this job earlier than I intended in order to do what is right for our country and our party," May said.

    The latest move by the PM didn't have a positive effect on the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), supporting the current government's majority in the parliament, who refused to back the government "if they table a fresh meaningful vote."

    In response to the resignation promise, social media exploded with commentary, sarcasm and memes over the potential exit of the Prime Minister, who has been leading the country to the turmoil of Brexit negotiations for the past three years. 

    On the other side, British lawmakers in their series of indicative votes on how the country should handle Brexit evening haven't made their intentions any clearer. Not a single one of the eight choices on offer was supported by the majority MPs, with the least popular option being leaving the EU without a deal.

    The continuous mixed messages coming out of the UK Parliament have confused the European Union leaders and the general public alike.  

    28 March saw the PM press with her efforts to get her Brexit deal over the line, as she continued with meeting Conservative colleagues and Northern Ireland's DUP officials.
