In her first speech as Prime Minister outside Number 10, Theresa May promised to “fight injustices” and said she will strengthen the United Kingdom and the common bond that unites the nations of the UK.
She underlined the need to improve the life chances of those who are disadvantaged, are insecure in work and those who are “just managing”.
Prime Minister May concluded by saying that by working together and exploiting the talents of all the people, a “better Britain” can be built. Prime Minister May becomes the UK’s second female leader after Margaret Thatcher.
In an emotional farewell outside Number 10 today, David Cameron said Mrs May would provide “strong and stable leadership” and wished her well in her negotiations with the EU.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace said the Queen “was graciously pleased to accept” David Cameron’s resignation as Prime Minister. Theresa May won the Conservative leadership contest on Monday, after rival candidate Andrea Leadsom pulled out.
