Meet Theresa May, PM for Maidenhead. On Wednesday, assuming the Queen allows and so decrees, Mrs. May will become England’s second woman Prime Minister. In terms of history, she has big shoes to fill following Margaret Thatcher.
With Nigel Farage. UK Express.
She became leader of the Conservative Party only today; her statement:
11 July 2016
Theresa May made the following statement after confirmation of her selection as leader of the Conservative Party: “I am honoured and humbled to have been chosen by the Conservative Party to become its leader. I would like to pay tribute to the other candidates during the election campaign, and I would like to pay tribute to Andrea Leadsom for the dignity that she has shown today. During this campaign, my case has been based on three things. First, the need for strong, proven leadership to steer us through what will be difficult and uncertain economic and political times. The need of course to negotiate the best deal for Britain in leaving the EU and to forge a new role for ourselves in the world. Brexit means Brexit and we’re going to make a success of it. Second, we need to unite our country. And third, we need a strong, new, and positive vision for the future of our country. A vision of a country that works not for the privileged few but works for every one of us. Because we’re going to give people more control over their lives. That’s how together we will build a better Britain.”
If she’s sincere about working for the people, not the elites, then this may be a positive step for the UK. People need more control of their lives. They need breathing room from London and secession from the EU.
Mr. Farage has recently criticized May in typical Farage fashion, mainly over her failure as Home Secretary to curb immigration into the country from the non-West. He also seems to think her rather cold. The Home Secretary yields some power but cannot operate in a vacuum. I hope, it light of BREXIT and with her new authority, she will make good on previous promises to stem the flow of handout-seekers and criminals.
Speaking of criminal, it’s interesting that the UK can find a woman worthy of high office who isn’t now or hasn’t been recently under felony investigation by Scotland Yard or MI5. Cold or not, I hear she keeps a clean email server.
The people having voted to leave the socialists and miscreants in Brussels, the matter now rests with Queen Elizabeth. God save the Queen; God save Britain, and good luck, Mrs. May.
