May's priority throughout has been trying to find some way of holding the Conservative Party together. All the rest is just flannel.
......

It's not wholly fair to put all the blame for the referendum of 2016, and for it being designed in such a stupid way (eg, no requirement for a 5% majority) on David Cameron. The vote to hold it was backed by all political parties in Westminster apart from the SNP.

Of course he carries all the responsibility for breaking his repeated promise to stay on if Remain lost till a successor was found, and skkedaddled the next day. That's why we got saddled with a coronation for May.
