Theresa May, 59, Britain’s new Prime Minister,
bearing a placard that says “Je Suis Juif — I am a Jew.”
LD: According to Haaretz, Theresa May is “probably the most pro-Israel and Jew-friendly prime minister in British history.” She is described by Haaretz as “extremely supportive.” May has said effusively, “Without its Jews, Britain would not be Britain.”
So here we have two women, both of them devout Zionists, hand in glove with the land-grabbing Israelis guilty of war crimes in Gaza, who are about to assume the mantle of power in their respective countries: the warmonger Hillary Clinton in America and Theresa May in Britain — a woman who made no attempt whatever while Home Secretary to stem the tide of illegal immigrants into Britain.
Interesting times ahead.
Britain’s Theresa May has been confirmed as the winner of the ruling Conservatives’ leadership contest and will be installed as prime minister shortly, the chairman of a party committee running the contest said on Monday.
“I have received confirmation from the board of the party and can now declare that Mrs May has been elected as the new leader of the Conservative Party with immediate effect,” Graham Brady told party lawmakers.
“The current prime minister, David Cameron, has indicated that he will go to the palace to offer his resignation after prime minister’s questions on Wednesday and the new prime minister should be in post very soon afterwards.”
May, 59, was left as the only candidate to succeed David Cameron, who announced he was stepping down after Britons voted last month to leave the European Union. Britain’s planned withdrawal has weakened the 28-nation bloc and created huge uncertainty over trade and investment.
Cameron said he would offer his resignation to Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday after attending a final session of Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons. Standing outside 10 Downing Street, he said: “We will have a new prime minister in that building behind me by Wednesday evening.”
May, who has served as interior minister for the past six years, is now set to become Britain’s second female prime minister after Margaret Thatcher.
The pound, which has hit 31-year lows since the June 23 referendum vote on concern about potential damage to the British economy, bounced briefly on the prospect that the Conservative leadership question would be resolved much sooner than expected. It later surrendered its gains, and by 12:43 GMT was trading down 0.1 percent at around $1.2938, far below the $1.50 it had touched on the night of the referendum.
The 52-48 percent vote to quit the EU after 43 years of membership has shaken financial markets because the complex divorce process creates huge uncertainty for business, trade and investment.
It has thrown both Britain’s major political parties into upheaval.
