The former home secretary Theresa May is the United Kingdom’s new prime minister who is succeeding David Cameron on No 10 Downing Street after he resigned from the office following the decision of the UK to leave European Union. As soon as she visited the Queen in the Buckingham Palace to “kiss hands,” as the Guardian publishes, May explained the way she would govern. May pledged to the interest of struggling families, not the rich, the Guardian comments.
“If you’re one of those families, if you’re just managing, I want to address you directly. I know you’re working around the clock. I know you’re doing your best. I know that sometimes life can be a struggle. She promised leading not by the interests of the privileged few, but by yours.
Former home secretary May shifted with the tone on the injustice and promised opportunity for all. “When it comes to opportunity we won’t entrench the advantages of the fortunate few. We will do everything we can to help anybody, whatever your background, to go as far as your talents will take you,” May stressed talking to the reporters.
Cameron congratulated to May and he left No 10 with his wife and children. He said it is proud of the stronger economy, gay marriage and free schools as the heart of his legacy as giving the final farewell speech in Downing Street.
The White House greeted the confirmation of May as Britain’s prime minister, with press secretary Josh Earnest commenting and confirming the U.S. previously collaborated with may while she was UK’s home secretary.
