Theresa May : the enigmatic prime minister
Theresa May : the enigmatic prime minister
Prince, Rosa2017
20 days after Britain's dramatic vote to leave the European Union, a new Prime Minister entered Downing Street. Few were more surprised than Theresa May herself. At the start of this extraordinary summer, the formidable May had been on the cusp of becoming the longest-serving Home Secretary in history. Then the unexpected happened. David Cameron's sudden resignation unleashed a leadership contest like no other - and saw the showier rivals for the post of Prime Minister fall one by one with dizzying speed. Britain's second-ever female premier is a self-styled unflashy politician, a vicar's daughter whose commitment to public service was instilled during her Oxfordshire childhood. This book tells her story.
