Turmoil in the political opposition has given Britain's governing Conservative Party free rein to implement Brexit in its own way, but Prime Minister Theresa May is at the mercy of her own awkward squad, analysts say.Labour has been embroiled in a bitter leadership contest all summer and remains in turmoil following the re-election of leftist leader Jeremy Corbyn at its annual conference, against the wishes of the vast majority of Labour's members of parliament.May, who turned 60 Saturday, became Britain's second woman prime minister in July, after David Cameron resigned following the defeat of the 'Remain' campaign he had backed in the referendum on Britain's EU membership.Not everything is going swimmingly for May, according to Matthew Goodwin, a professor of political science at Kent University.May and her finance minister Philip Hammond both gave lukewarm backing for Britain staying in the EU during the referendum campaign.Whatever the wishes of the hardcore Brexiteers, whether in cabinet or on parliament's backbenches, May and her government are about to enter uncharted territory.
