Maybe not cowardly, but selfish for sure. He threw the country in disarray and now he won't responsibly help decide how to accomplish the Brexit tasks and actually perform them.

It's kind of like the aircraft carrier "Mission Accomplished" of Bush, but having Bush step down as president immediately afterwards. "Well, I invaded Iraq, it's over, riiiiight!? America! We won, I rule, history accomplished, middle east solved."
