Theresa Mary May (née Brasier; born 1 October 1956) is a British politician who has been the Home Secretary since 2010, and the Member of Parliament (MP) for Maidenhead since 1997. A member of the Conservative Party, May identifies as a One-Nation Conservative and has been characterised as a liberal conservative.

Born in Eastbourne, Sussex, May studied geography at St Hugh's College, Oxford. From 1977 to 1983, May worked at the Bank of England, and from 1985 to 1997 at the Association for Payment Clearing Services, also serving as a councillor for the London Borough of Merton's Durnsford Ward.[3] After unsuccessful attempts to get elected to the House of Commons in 1992 and 1994, she was elected MP for Maidenhead in the 1997 general election. She went on to be appointed Chairman of the Conservative Party and be sworn of Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council in 2002.

She served in a number of roles in the Shadow Cabinets of William Hague, Iain Duncan Smith, Michael Howard, and David Cameron, including Shadow Leader of the House of Commons and Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, before being appointed Home Secretary and Minister for Women and Equalities in 2010, giving up the latter role in 2012. In June 2016, May announced her candidacy for the Conservative party leadership election and quickly emerged as the front-runner. She won the first ballot on 5 July 2016 by a significant margin over the other candidates, receiving a full 50% of the votes. On 7 July, May won the votes of 199 MPs; she now faces the vote of Conservative Party members across the United Kingdom in an all-female contest with Andrea Leadsom.[4] The result will be announced on 9 September 2016.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has responded to last night’s attack in central London in part by calling for tighter controls on online communication. Her words have outraged some technologists who say that the proposal is both unacceptable and at fundamental odds with the spirit of the Internet.

"We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed," May said. "Yet that is precisely what the Internet, and the big companies that provide Internet-based services, provide. We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach international agreements that regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning. And we need to do everything we can at home to reduce the risks of extremism online."

 
She added: "We need to deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online."

The comments continue a string of anti-privacy declarations from May’s Conservative government including calls in March for a so-called backdoor to the WhatsApp secure messaging service and major increases in Internet control. May was a sponsor of the Investigatory Powers Act that gave the U.K. government broad surveillance powers.

The government is going to use an existential threat to increase control, and in this case control over the Internet.

The U.K. government prevents its citizens from owning firearms and knives. It has set up one of the largest surveillance systems in existence. But somehow terrorism is still happening. Increased government control over the Internet should fix it!

New international agreements should be introduced to regulate the internet in the light of the London Bridge terror attack, Theresa May has said.

The Prime Minister said introducing new rules for cyberspace would “deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online” and that technology firms were not currently doing enough.

The Prime Minister made the comments outside Downing Street on Sunday morning in the aftermath of the van and knife attack that saw seven people killed and dozens injured.

The attack on London Bridge shows there is “far too much tolerance” of Islamist extremism in Britain today, Theresa May has said. 

The Prime Minister made the comments outside Downing Street on Sunday morning in the aftermath of the van and knife attack that saw seven people killed and dozens injured.

She said rooting out terror would require “some difficult and often embarrassing conversations”.

Charities are reportedly being “gagged” by the Government from speaking out about “damaging” social care plans. 

A chief executive of a major charity told the Guardian they felt “muzzled” by legislation passed in 2014, which prevents charities from lobbying the Government in the run-up to an election. 

The charity leader warned Theresa May’s decision to means test the winter fuel allowance could “literally cost lives”, as some of the poorest pensioners in the country lose support.

Those of you who follow Theresa May on Twitter will have seen that this Sunday she paid a visit to Jesus House, a religious organisation based in Brent Cross, North London.

Jesus House too, understandably proud of their visit from the PM and eager to highlight the relationship, head up their own Twitter page with a pinned tweet highlighting the visit with a selection of very glossy press photographs of their own, featuring a smiling Prime Minister alongside Pastor Agu Irukwu.

With less than a fortnight to go till polling day, it is natural that Theresa May and her team are reaching out to all sorts of communities. With Labour continuing to gain ground and a Conservative landslide looking less and less likely, I suppose a "lively growing church" (while by no means my idea of a fun day out!) could be the perfect place to focus such efforts.

Prime Minister Theresa May's performance at yesterday's Battle for Number 10 interview session was, in a word, poor.

She seemed robotic and did not come across as the strong, assured, stable figure her campaign has been dependent upon projecting.

At one point the audience even laughed at her.

Billboards declaring Theresa May to be a ‘threat’ have been erected across England and Wales in the run up to the general election.

The boards, printed by the People’s Assembly Against Austerity (PAAA) implore voters not to vote for the Conservative Party on 8 June.

Labour has accused Theresa May of wrecking prospects of a successful Brexit deal with an aggressive stance that has made Britain a “laughing stock” across the EU.

The Prime Minister has “made us look like ogres” instead of taking part in a sensible dialogue that is the key to a smooth exit and trade agreement, said Angela Rayner, the party’s education spokeswoman.

The highly personal attack came as David Davis, the Brexit Secretary, hinted that Britain will walk away from the talks if the EU refuses to offer “free and frictionless trade”.
