Britain has welcomed Theresa May as it’s new Prime Minister and the question on everybody lips now is: Who is this woman? Another question to seriously consider: What does this mean for the economy of the world?
If you’re anything like us and had no idea who this woman was before yesterday then take a look at what she had to say about herself: “Ken Clarke says I’m a bloody difficult woman, The next man to find that out will be Jean-Claude Juncker (president of the European Commission)”
‘Also, she has awesome taste in shoes’
Her statement takes us back to a time in the past when Margret Thatcher, the one time British female prime minister reigned supreme as the nonsense head of state of the UK.
So who exactly is Theresa May? She was a banker back in the day before serving as the councillor of London Borough of Merton’s Durnsford Ward, she was later elected into the House of Commons in 1992 and 1994 after several unsuccessful attempts, a member of parliament and a liberal conservative who went on to become the home secretary from 2010 to 2016, a position she held before her selection for the job of prime minister.
What does her election mean for the world’s economy? Only time can tell at this point. But we’re cautiously optimistic. This kickass woman got the job of the prime minister without an election- she was selected by her party based on the vote of confidence placed in her to steer Britain through “political and economic uncertainty”. The pound might be enjoying some good times soon, which is pretty necessary since it’s currently experiencing an all-time low like as never been seen in the past 31 years of existence. Top on the priority for the Prime Minister is to ensure the pound gets back up, this she intends do to ensure Britain’s economy doesn’t fall into recession.
‘TM peering at haters and daring them to just try and doubt her’
Whether she succeeds or not remains to be seen but in the mean time, let’s just sit back and bask in the fact that a strong, powerful woman who seems to know what she’s doing in charge and things might finally be looking up.
