I suspect she will just give up & quit at some point, just like Cameron.
I doubt it. There is no alternative (TINA). Assuming that we are Brexiting, nobody on the Leave side is competent enough to take over her role. And somebody on the Remain side would not be trusted.
The constitution of this Parliament means that the DUP hold the balance of power and they will not support Corbyn (due to his IRA sympathies). And Labour will not get rid of him (not for lack of trying). Thus we will have the Conservatives in power for the next few years.
The leading lights in the Conservative Party to be next Prime Minister are Bojo (really??), Jacob Rees-Mogg and Amber Rudd. I thought Amber Rudd has done a pretty good job at the Home Office, but then look at what happened to the previous occupant of that post.
So, really, for the time being, we are stuck with Theresa May.
And I believe that like the Queen, she has a sense of duty to the country (vicar's daughter and all) and will not quit unless there is a clear alternative to take over from her. Unlike mkhan2525, I do not think she is power-hungry and would go if there is a viable (Conservative) alternative.

I don't understand what do they mean by Britain will guarantee rights for as yet unborn children who join EU parents after Brexit?!

Anyone else call it a breakthrough deal? I don't. When we get the fine print, I am sure it would be more or less meeting ALL of EU's demands.

It looks like for 8 years after Brexit or until 2027 it will be no much change.

Dear xxxx,

I’m proud that so many EU citizens like yourself have built your lives in the UK and made it your home. We value your contribution which is why the Government put safeguarding your rights as the first priority in the Brexit negotiations.

I am absolutely delighted that we have now reached an agreement with the EU that does this. I know that at times you’ve had an anxious wait while the fine details were ironed out, but we wanted to get it right and we have always had you at the forefront of our thoughts.

We have always said that we will continue to recognise the value you bring to our society, and that we will remain an open and diverse country. Hopefully this deal provides reassurance that we will do just that.

The agreement we have reached ensures the rights you and your family currently have remain broadly the same with access to healthcare, benefits and pensions protected. And your existing close family members living outside the UK retain the right to join you in future. These rights will be cemented in UK law meaning you can live your life as you do now with the security of knowing they won’t change. Irish citizens also have their existing rights, associated with the Common Travel Area arrangements, protected.

Away from the negotiations, my team at the Home Office has been working hard to build the digital system that you’ll use to get your new status. It’s being designed from scratch to be quick and simple to use. There won’t be bureaucratic hurdles – those processing applications will work in your favour.

What’s more, it will cost no more than the fee a British person pays for a passport and if you already have valid permanent residence documentation it will be free. There will be support for the vulnerable and those without access to a computer, and we’re working with EU citizens’ representatives and embassies to ensure the system works for everyone.

You do not need to do anything just yet. You will see more detail about the settled status scheme from us in the new year and we expect applications will open during the second half of 2018. In the meantime, please do share this message with your friends and family so that they too can stay up to date through our mailing list.

I hope that the agreement we have reached provides certainty to you and your family ahead of Christmas. EU citizens, like yourself, who have made the UK their home are our family, our neighbours and our colleagues and we want you to stay.

Have a very happy Christmas.

Yours sincerely,

Amber Rudd
Home Secretary
