Deepak Saxena, an Indian PhD student at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, wryly noted his own country’s past with Britain in a tweet about the Brexit crisis. 

“I am an Indian and I can tell you that Brits take forever to leave,” said Saxena. 

Reaction on social media focused on May’s management of the crisis and what many saw as the crocodile tears from those in her own party. 

“Woman promises she will put away can of petrol after the house has burnt down,” said author Sathnam Sanghera.

‏”Do you think over on Tory twitter they’re doing Endgame ‘Avenge the fallen’ posters for Theresa May?” wondered journalist Stephen Ackroyd.

“If you wanted another reason to dislike uk politics watching turncoat tories big up @theresa_may on news shows will surely deliver,” radio host Matthew Wright tweeted.

Then again, some commentators pointed out, given the terms of May’s resignation and the U.K. Parliament’s attempts to Brexit thus far, there’s a possibility she’ll never leave.
