As of next month, she will have been in the position for longer than anyone else in the past century.May has weathered a handful of political storms in her tenure and has earned a reputation as unwavering and difficult.Shes a famously reluctant delegator, needing to know exactly what her juniors are doing and to chew over every detail of decisionsa micro-management style she cannot hope to apply to an entire government, The Guardian said.But shes also built a following among women in the Tory Party, who, according to The Guardian, have respect and admiration for her morally guided decisions.She took down British police in a 2014 speech, for example, exposing their contempt for the public, their racism and their failure to properly handle domestic violence cases.Last year, she launched an inquiry into the improper handling of child abuse.'We the Conservatives will put ourselves at the service of ordinary working people and we will make Britain a country that works for everyone."Theresa May The One Conservative Candidate Who Played For TeamRemainAlthough May quietly stood in the remain camp, she believes that Britain must act on the decision it made to exit the EU.She expressed her disappointment in politicians and business leaders who still dont get it during her speech Monday.Brexit means Brexit and we are going to make a success of it, she said. There will be no attempts to stay inside the EU,no attempts to rejoin it through the back door, and no second referendum.Champion Of The Working ClassMay is now campaigning with a focus on Britains working class.We the Conservatives will put ourselves at the service of ordinary working people and we will make Britain a country that works for everyone, whoever you are and wherever youre from, she said Monday.She said she plans to put workers on company boards, in addition to consumers.She also spoke of economic injustice in the context of race.If youre black, youre treated more harshly by the criminal justice system than if youre white. If youre a white, working-class boy, youre less likely than anybody else to go to university, she said.But A Hard-Liner On Immigration'There is no case, in the national interest, for immigration of the scale we have experienced over the last decade, May said last October. She added that theres a limit to what Britain can handle and that she wants to see immigration brought down to sustainable levels.She worried that people in low-paying jobs would suffer from further wage cuts when more people enter the workforce.Last week, her office said it couldnt assure that EU nationals living in the U.K. would be able to remain post-Brexit.Cameron lauded May on Monday as strong, competent and more than capable of taking on the role of prime minister.He plans to offer his resignation to Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
