Britain's Next PM May Be Female But Still A Tory

The votes have been counted and verified and Britain's next Prime Minister will be...female.
The final two left standing are Theresa May and Andrea Leadsom and as one will take over from David Cameron as leader of the Conservative Party, by default they also become leader of Great Britain also.
Theresa May is the overwhelming favourite but they still have to go through the process over the next
few weeks of choosing a winner so we also have to pretend it's a competition and may the best women win etc etc.
So in the one corner Theresa May, the current Home Secretary, owner of a Geography degree and a career as a financial consultant behind her.
In the other corner Andrea Leadsom, the current Energy and climate change minister, has a Political Science degree hanging on her wall and came into politics with a background in Banking.
Both are saying the right things but it is worth remembering that whether it's May or Leadsom, they will still be heading up the Nasty Party and will still be following the same horrific right wing ideology that includes yet more austerity so whether it's a man or a woman, the politics won't change and the poorest in society will continue to be trod all over, it will just be done by someone with a slightly higher voice.
