LONDON (AP) — Britain is getting a new prime minister. Buckle up for a rocky ride.
On Tuesday, the U.K.'s governing Conservatives will announce the winner of a contest to replace Theresa May as leader of the party and the country. Just over three months later, on Oct. 31, Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union.
With the new British leader on a collision course with both the EU and Britain's Parliament over Brexit, the U.K. could be heading for a political crisis, a recession, an election, a referendum — or several of those options at the same time.
Nick Wright, an expert on EU politics at University College London says "It's a very fluid situation .... literally, anything could happen."
