Darrell Delamaide’s Political Capital: Theresa May’s bold leadership leaves the rest of Europe in her dust

When Theresa May teed up her plans for getting Britain out of the European Union, the new prime minister seemed a lot more like Margaret Thatcher than her immediate predecessor, David Cameron.

“We voted to leave the European Union and become a fully independent, sovereign country,” May told the delegates to the Conservative Party’s annual convention this week. “We will do what independent, sovereign countries do. We will decide for ourselves how we control immigration. And we will be free to pass our own laws.”

Her insistence on limiting immigration signaled a “hard Brexit” — that is, a complete withdrawal from the EU and its single market, which requires free movement of labor and capital as a precondition.
