United Kingdom Prime Minister, Theresa May, has asked Britain to be prepared for some “difficult times” ahead, even as the country leaves the European Union.
In her first major interview since taking office, Mrs May warned that although the economy has gone against negative predictions, Brexit would not be “plain sailing” for the UK, adding that formal EU talks will not begin until 2017.
The former home secretary, became Prime Minister after David Cameron resigned in the wake of the EU referendum hence the Brexit process is likely to dominate the first years of Mrs May’s premiership.
According to her, Britain’s economy will suffer as a result of the decision to leave the European Union despite signs in recent economic data that the impact has not been as severe as some predicted.
However she has expressed optimism about new opportunities for Britain outside the EU saying, Britain will “make a success” of leaving the EU.
Mrs May has also ruled out a snap election, on claims that the UK needs “stability”.
