With the resignation of David Cameron earlier this month, the world gushed at the thought of a new woman in charge of the United Kingdom. And while pundits have already tried to label her the Steel Lady after the first British PM Margaret Thatcher, the reality may be just a bit different as Theresa May is more likely to be a Prime Minister who serves the bankers far more than she serves the people.
Because the election to replace Cameron took place very quickly, the only real issue on the minds of the world was how would she deal with the results of the Brexit vote. But now that the people have had time to do a bit more digging, Theresa May has more in common with Janet Yellen than she does with France’s new ‘Joan of Arc’ candidate, Marine Le Pen.
In addition to Theresa once working at the Bank of England, May’s husband Philip is also a banker who currently works as a Senior Executive with a very prestigious and private investment firm.

So with this banker friendly couple now residing at Number 10 Downing Street, what does that mean for Britain’s future? It appears we may not have to wait too long to find out.
So despite the demand for change that the Brexit vote, the Donald Trump nomination, and the rise of alternative political candidates in Europe like Marine Le Pen and Bepe Grillo represent, Britain’s new ‘Steel Lady’ is set to keep things fairly close to status quo, and until proven differently, is a Prime Minister the bankers appear very comfortable working with.
