Theresa May signs in as the Britain’s new Prime Minister on Wednesday after David Cameron exits from the post. May and her husband Philip John May entered for the first time in 10 Downing Street as the new PM of the nation after getting an official invitation to form the government from Her Majesty, The Queen, in Buckingham Palace and outgoing David Cameron’s hearty goodbye to the Parliament.
At her first speech outside 10 Downing Street, she called Cameron as a ‘great modern Prime Minister’ who not only worked to stabilise the economy, but his true legacy is about social justice. His move towards the law of same sex marriage, taking off low wage earners out of the Income Tax leading to a one nation government proves the title.
In her speech, she exclaimed that she will plan to lead in the same spirit as Cameron according to the principles of her party stating its complete name - Conservatives and Unionist party, which is not-so known to people, to promote inclusiveness and unity between all the citizens as the main role of her party.
“It means we believe in Union not just between the nations of the United Kingdom but between all of our citizens- every one of us- whoever we are and wherever we’re from” May said. She even said that she would use her position to fight ‘burning injustice’.
She went on: ‘That means fighting against the burning injustice that if you’re born poor you will die on average nine years earlier than others.
‘If you’re black you are treated more harshly by the criminal justice system than if you’re white. If you’re a white working class boy you’re less likely than anybody else in Britain to go to university. ‘If you’re at a state school you’re less likely to reach the top professions than if you’re educated privately. If you’re a woman you will earn less than a man.
‘If you suffer from mental health problems, there’s not enough help to hand. If you’re young you will find it harder than ever before to own your own home.’
She is keen to solve all the problems and injustice faced by the masses and promised to bring revolutionary changes in it.
She even addressed the ‘managing group’ saying that ‘If you are one of those families, if you’re just managing, I want to address you directly. I know you are working around the clock, I know you’re doing your best and I know that sometimes life can be a struggle.
‘The Government I lead will be driven, not by the interests of the privileged few but by yours. We will do everything we can to give you more control over your lives.
‘When we take the big calls we will think not of the powerful, but you. When we pass new laws we will listen not to the mighty, but to you.’
‘When it comes to taxes we will prioritise not the wealthy, but you. 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.’
Some of the new Cabinet members have been appointed by her, for instance Boris Johnson, former London mayor and the prominent supporter of the victorious ‘Leave Campaign’ in EU, is now the Foreign Secretary and Veteran Rights wingers David Davis and Liam Fox are back in government as secretary for Brexit and International Trade respectively.
Amber Rudd will succeed May as the home secretary, which is a promotion from her previous post as the energy secretary and rapid swing to a woman who has not been so long in Parliament and has joined the Cabinet last May. Michael Fallon will remain the Defence Minister.
Let us see what will befall upon this lady Prime Minister, the second woman to hold such a reputed post after Margaret Thatcher.
