In remarks shortly after her leadership was affirmed, Conservative party leader and incoming Prime Minister Theresa May said her priorities will be to administer Britain’s exit from the European Union, a move approved by voters last month, to unite the country and to create a “strong, new, positive vision for the future,” not just for the privileged few, but for everyone.

British Prime Minister David Cameron is to resign on Wednesday, paving the way for Home Secretary Theresa May to take the reins.

May was officially named Conservative party leader and successor to Cameron “with immediate effect” Monday, said Graham Brady, chair of the 1922 committee, which is a collection of conservative members of parliament that is key to electing the party leader. She will replace Cameron on Wednesday evening.

Comment: John Durrad –

Theresa May is now the British Prime Minister.  The only woman to lead the country in British history apart from Margaret Thatcher.

Out of six contenders for leadership of the Conservative Party the four men soon dropped out leaving the contest to the two women, Theresa May and Andrea Leadsom.

It was obvious that Mrs May had a far greater backing of the party members so eventually Mrs Leadsom also dropped out leaving Mrs May a clear winner.  It is interesting though that Britain did not have a man who was strong enough to stand up and positively fight for his country.  A sign of the times perhaps? 

“When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand:

In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.”  Isa 3:6-7

It is a shame that today so many men have given up their God given right to be a leader of the family, even some staying at home while the wife(partner) goes out to work!  Yes, a sign of the times.
