WUHAN, China (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May defied critics calling for her to quit on Wednesday, saying she was not a quitter and that she has a long-term job to do: delivering Brexit and domestic reform.

"I've said to you before, I'm not a quitter and there is a long-term job to be done," she told reporters on her way to China for a trade visit. She had been asked about recent criticism of her leadership and reports of a potential attempt to oust her.

"That job is about getting the best Brexit deal, about ensuring that we take back control of our money, our laws, our borders, that we can sign trade deals around the rest of the world. But it is also about our domestic agenda," May said.
