Two days later, Queen Elizabeth II appointed Mrs. Theresa Mary May as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

She promptly made a cabinet reshuffle to ‘suit’ supporters of the brexit and this saw 9 Ministers under Cameron either resign or get fired.

As Prime Minister, she has led so many changes but the most important yet is the U.K’s withdrawal from the European Union (Brexit) which is still ongoing.

Theresa May Brexit

In 2016 July, a new department was created in the government of the United Kingdom and called the Department for Exiting the European Union.

This department oversees all Brexit matters and became imperative when 51% of Britain’s voters supported the exit in the United Kingdom European Union membership referendum on the 23rd of June 2016.

The U.K might become the first member state to withdraw from the E.U by 29th March 2019 as the government triggered article 50.

Article 50 which gives a member state the power to decide to withdraw was evoked by the nation in March 2017.

The Prime Minister at the time, David Cameron, was against the exit and he subsequently resigned upon the result of the referendum upon which Theresa May succeeded him.

She duly began official talks in June 2017 with the E.U which aims at finalizing the agreement for withdrawal by 18th October 2018.

As time passes, fears abound that a no-deal Brexit might occur and several industries have begun to predict what this might mean for the State.

The biggest manufacturer of insulin in the U.K announced on 3rd of September that it is stockpiling insulin for four months to ensure appropriate treatment of diabetes in such an occurrence.

The finance, insurance, car, shipping, creative and other industries have cried out.

A transition period of 21 months (from 29 March 2019 till 31 December 2020) has been agreed upon by both parties during which free movement can continue.

As for what happens in the long term, the world waits to see what Theresa May, the woman ‘in-charge’, brings to the table.
