Speaking outside 10 Downing Street after being appointed by the Queen, Theresa May said it would be her mission to "build a better Britain". She promised to give the JAMs (people who were "just about managing") more control over their lives and later began appointing Cabinet members, with Philip Hammond becoming Chancellor of the Exchequer and Boris Johnson becoming the new Foreign Secretary.
Lying to Parliament
On 28 June 2017, SKWAWKBOX cited three videos and claimed that Theresa May had lied to Parliament at PMQs when challenged by Jeremy Corbyn over the Tories’ cuts to local authority funding and the dangers they have created, particularly in relation to the Grenfell Tower fire.
"Typically, Theresa May dodged any semblance of an answer to the question of funding. Instead, she tried to answer a question that hadn’t been asked, about who was in government when cladding began to be used on tower blocks. And, again typically, she screwed even that up – and lied outright to the House.
"May claimed that the cladding of tower blocks began under Tony Blair’s New Labour government. She misled the House by about twenty years – as this 1984 video shows, it in fact began under Margaret Thatcher during another period of Tory cuts to local government funding.
"Before the Tories began the degradation of Parliament by allowing various ministers to remain in position even after lies and other offences, lying to the House of Commons used to be an automatic resignation offence.
"Theresa May has no honour. If she did, she wouldn’t have risked peace in Northern Ireland by getting into bed with the hard-right, paramilitary-linked DUP to bail her out after her abject general election failure. So she won’t resign as she should.
"But if there are any MPs among her back-benchers – or even (though unlikely) her front-bench team – that still have a sense of honour, they ought to be giving serious thought to voting with the Labour Party on its public service pay amendment this evening.
"If May won’t do the decent thing herself, others in her party need to do it for her – and bring down a dishonest government led by a lying PM."
Expecting to achieve a landslide majority and strengthen her hand in the Brexit negotiations, Theresa May sought and was given parliamentary approval on 19 April 2017 to call a snap General Election for 8 June 2017. Contrary to her expectations, however, the Conservatives lost their parliamentary majority in the election, and have to rely on the support of the DUP's ten MPs to continue in government. On 12 June 2017, Theresa May told backbenchers in the 1922 Committee:
- "I got us into this mess, and I'm the one who'll get us out of it."
Theresa May has shown herself a tool of deep state interests.
Brexit means BrexitDuring her brief and successful 2016 Conservative Party leadership campaign, Theresa May famously declared
“Brexit means Brexit, and we're going to make a success of it.”
Theresa May (July 2016) — 
Too much tolerance
In 2017, following high profile acts of "terror", Theresa May remarked:
In her role as Britain's longest serving Home Secretary, Theresa May was aggressive in her support for the deep state's mass surveillance. After Edward Snowden's revelations of illegal mass surveillance by the UK intelligence agencies (especially GCHQ), Mrs May did not respond by announcing that the perpetrators would be arrested. Instead, in November 2015, she announced new surveillance legislation that explicitly legalised such surveillance while mandated that ISPs assist such surveillance by requiring them to keep logs, for example, the addresses of all web pages visited by their customers in the last 12 months.
