Fast-forward sixteen years, the Conservative MP became the party's first ever ChairWoman. She became a household name in 2010 when then-Prime Minister David Cameron named her Home Secretary. Under her leadership, the ministry pushed for reforms in policing and set up an inquiry into sex abuse after the Jimmy Savile affair. But critics will mostly remember May's immigration policies: Vans driving around migrant communities with the words GO HOME OR FACE ARREST written on the side, a minimum income requirement for UK citizens bringing foreign spouses into the country... Methods NGOs described as "chilling and bitter" ... Others pointed out their failure, as May did not manage to reduce net migration. However, the Oxford graduate did cement her reputation as a tough negotiator within her party. After six years, May became the longest-serving interior minister in recent history. And she left that position only to take on the top job after David Cameron lost the EU referendum ... In July 2016, Theresa May became the second woman to become the UK's Prime MinisterDespite previously campaigning against Brexit - on taking office, she quickly adapted her message... becoming its cheerleader. Brexit means brexit. On March 29, 2017, she triggered the divorce process with the bloc... If the Brexit referendum itself was contentious, deciding on how to implement it proved to be even more difficult ... May faced opposition from all political parties including her own.Criticized for her lack of leadership, she announced early elections in June 2017 ...A gamble she lost - along with her conservative party's majority in Parliament. As she led a minority government during Brexit negotiations, May struggled to push through her Withdrawal Agreement... A divided parliament and a divided cabinet rejected her vision several times.. Bowing under pressure from her own party, May announced her resignation after three years in power. UPSOT to have had the opportunity to serve the country i love ... For her supporters she's been resilient.. but for her critics too stubborn. Contrary to her campaign promises, the once unsinkable leader leaves behind a dis-united Kingdom.
