The former energy secretary, a pro-EU campaigner, takes over from Mrs May and begins work immediately on whether the country should implement a points based system once the UK leaves the union.
Britain’s new Home Secretary Ms Rudd has served as former Prime Minister David Cameron’s Energy Secretary since the last general election in May 2015. The pro-Remain Tory MP supported Mrs May’s leadership bid and said that energy minister Andrea Leadsom was not ready to be Prime Minister. Ms Rudd, who was elected as MP for Hastings and Rye, has long been seen as one of the rising stars of the Tory party.
She was slammed for scaremongering “Alice in Wonderland” politics during EU referendum campaign after warning Brexit would push up energy bills. Ms Rudd also jibed Brexiteer Boris Johnson, who has been appointed as Foreign Secretary, during a TV clash. She said: “Boris is the life and soul of the party, but he is not the man you want driving you home at the end of the evening.”
The Conservative power woman has pushed for action to combat climate change and believes that the scientific evidence is completely compelling. She once declared that she is “Thatcherite” on climate change because Margaret Thatcher was the first leader to raise the issue at the UN. The former Energy Secretary committed Britain to slash its carbon emissions by 57 per cent by 2030 – a move welcomed by green campaigners.
We tried to find her stands on Immigration and her related experience on that matter. We found nothing.
Hopefully in the near future we will find out why the new PM trusted her with this important role in such delicate time for the UK.
