I did ‘everything i could’ to deliver Brexit - Theresa May

I did ‘everything i could’ to deliver Brexit - Theresa May

The Tory leader has discussed her commitment to negotiating a deal for Britain to leave the EU, as well as giving her thoughts on the character required to be Prime Minister and the regrets from her time at Number 10. She pointed to her willingness to work with Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn and the loss of her position as leader, as evidence of the sacrifices she was willing to make to deliver Brexit. ‘People have asked me: “Why didn’t you tip the table over?” But if you do that constantly, it’s like the little girl crying wolf – it ceases to have an effect,’ Mrs May told the Daily Mail. The new leader of the Conservative Party, either Boris Johnson or Jeremy Hunt, will be announced on July 23 following a ballot of Conservative members and will take over as prime minister the following day.

Although Mrs. May did not name either candidate in her interview, she alluded to the necessity of character in the UK’s top job. She said being Prime Minister is not about power, but about service to the public. ‘All too often, those who see it as a position of power, see it as about themselves and not about the people they are serving. There is a real difference.’ She said the low points of her time in Downing Street were her inability to deliver Brexit and her reaction to the Grenfell tower disaster, and listed changes to unemployment levels, wage rises outstripping inflation and increased employment of women as among her achievements.

Mrs. May also said it was unlikely that her successor would be able to negotiate further concessions from the EU, adding that the next significant challenges lie ahead within Westminster. ‘I had assumed mistakenly, that the tough bit of the negotiation was with the EU, that Parliament would accept the vote of the British people and just want to get it done, that people who’d spent their lives campaigning for Brexit would vote to get us out on March 29 and May 27.
