Theresa May Poised To Become Next UK Prime Minister

[rebelmouse-image 27090355 alt="""" original_size="750x974" expand=1]

i, July 12

Tuesday's edition of the British daily theifeatures new Conservative Party leader Theresa May, with the headline "May Day."

Outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron is expected to present his resignation to the Queen on Wednesday, which will make Theresa May will the UK's new leader. On Monday, Andrea Leadsom, the final of four candidates to lead the Conservative Party, quit the race following backlash from her remarks that she was more qualified than May to lead Britain because she is a mother.

59-year-old Theresa May campaigned for the UK remaining in the European Union even though she is a Euroskeptic. She has ensured Britons that there will be no do over on the Brexit vote, and that she will simply do her best to negotiate best terms possible for the transition.

For his part, Cameron declared that he was "delighted" that she will take his place. It will be the second time a woman becomes Prime Minister of Britain, and comparisons between her and Margaret Thatcher are piling up. They both have a reputation for having great determination and a willingness to stand up to the men who traditionally dominate British politics.

Two of Europe's biggest nations are set to be led by women, as May takes her place alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel. And if Hillary Clinton wins the U.S. presidential race in November, women will rule the Western world's three most powerful countries.

TURIN — Guess who's not coming to dinner. It seems like a scene from the American Deep South during the decades of segregation. But this happened in Italy, in this summer of 2023.

Two Italians, in their sixties, got up from the restaurant table and left (without saying goodbye, as the owner points out), when they declared that they didn't want to eat in a restaurant where the chef was what they called: an 'n-word.'

Racists, poor things. And ignorant, in the sense of not knowing basic facts. They don't realize that we are all made of mixtures, come from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. And that food, of course, are blends of different ingredients and recipes.

The restaurant is called Ginger People&Food, and these visitors from out of town probably didn't understand that either.
