#Brexit: Theresa May Predicts Difficult Times AheadFeatured, Latest News, World News Sunday, September 4th, 2016
BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The UK Prime Minister (PM) Mrs. Theresa May has predicted “difficult times” ahead as the country recently left the European Union (EU).
May made the prediction in her first major interview since assumption to office in July. The PM warned that #Brexit would not be “plain sailing” for the UK.
Formal EU talks she informed would not begin until 2017 and assured that the process would not be “kicked into the long grass”. She however ruled out a snap general election, as she noted UK needed “stability”.
In the same vein, Mrs. May declared she would not pretend that leaving EU would be “plain sailing”, despite positive economic figures in the UK since the referendum.
The PM stated this while speaking before travelling to China for the G20 Summit.
She said: “We have had some good figures and better figures than some had predicted would be the case. I’m not going to pretend that it’s all going to be plain sailing.
“I think we must be prepared for the fact that there may be some difficult times ahead. But what I am is optimistic.”
In spite of the hard times she predicted, Mrs. May is still hopeful that UK would make a “success” out of leaving the EU and was conscious of new opportunities inherent in the exit.
It would be recalled the former Home Secretary assumed PM position after her immediate predecessor David Cameron resigned following UK referendum which favored exit from EU.
