Theresa May has been announced as the new Tory leader and soon-to-be Prime Minister. Of course, every new leader comes in with their promises and plans, May is no different.
May, while speaking outside of Parliment, said she was “honored and humbled,” to succeed David Cameron. Apparently, much in the vein of Trump’s victory as the Republican primary, May’s only rival, Andrea Leadsom, for the position dropped out yesterday. Leadsom said that she did not have what she needed to build “a strong and stable government.”
While praising Cameron’s leadership and Leadsom’s “dignity” in withdrawing from the political race, she said, “I am honored and humbled to have been chosen by the Conservative Party to become its leader.”
May went on to say, “A vision of a country that works not for the privileged few but that works for everyone of us because we’re going to give people more control over their lives and that’s how, together, we will build a better Britain.”
Although May, voted to stay in the EU she reassured the supports of the departure by saying “Brexit means Brexit and we’re going to make a success of it.”
David Cameron, the former Prime Minister, is scheduled to give his resignation to the Queen on Wednesday.
