No idea who she is or what her stances are, but she is to become the first British female Prime Minister since Margaret Thatcher was the PM back in the 1980's.

She has been described as a "One-nation conservative" which is a more pragmatic approach than the ideological approach that Thatcherites tend to take.
She has described herself as being a "liberal conservative", and has compared herself to Angela Merkel.
Others disagree, and say she is more conservative, anti-immigration and isolationist than Boris Johnson.

And another Thatcher, what could possibly go wrong.

Would have preferred a Brexiter as PM but Theresa May is a relatively safe choice. I just hope she follows through on everything.

Disappointed in Leadsom. I had high hopes for her but she bottled it at the first hurdle. Sure the media were against her but if she can't handle it she wasn't fit to be PM.

They were against because she's a complete idiot. Her views belong in the 1950's, she has no real political experience, and she gave disastrous speeches--if you really have to begin every sentence with 'as a mother'...

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

She seems committed to brexit however wants to wait until end of year before filing to try to negotiate favorable terms of having access to Euro markets but limiting or eliminating euro immigration.

I think that is a longshot. I haven't been looking but I havent heard of any willingness on the EU's part for prenegotiations. They need to rip off this bandaid as soon as possible so they can move forward.

Either that or she has plans to wait to see if economy tanks and use it as an excuse to not exit.

Who knows in that crazy madhouse.

The reason why the government is not triggering article 50 immediately and therefore delaying the start of negotiations to leave the EU is not to tempt the EU into pre negotiations but to have a clear plan of what we want to negotiate before beginning the two year negotiating window. It is an entirely logical approach. It would be foolish to begin negotiations without having a clear strategy for what you want to achieve.

Theresa May has long been critical of free movement but whether she can secure full access to the single market while restricting movement of people will certainly be a big challenge but I think its a realistic goal.

A strong thick skinned and decisive leader in the image of Margaret Thatcher but slightly to her left who can unite the country and can successfully negotiate a brexit. It's great news the nine week leadership campaign has been avoided and allows brexit preparations to begin.
