Let's just hope Theresa May is as strong a leader as the last female PM, and doesn't get so much abuse for doing the tough work as she did— Paul Anthon Salmon (@RealPaulSalmon) 13 July 2016
"Not everybody knows this, but the full title of my party is the Conservative and Unionist Party. And that word 'Unionist' is very important to me. It means we believe in the union, the precious precious bond between England Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland," May said following the appointment.
"I will lead 'one nation' government, make Britain a country that works for everyone," May stated.
Well, well, well. There can't be many people in Britain who wouldn't agree with @theresa_may speech. I just hope she means it.— Julia Hartley-Brewer (@JuliaHB1) 13 July 2016
