UK’s Teresa May Credits Faith for Helping in Difficult Decisions


Theresa May, the Prime Minister of the UK, told The Telegraph that her Christian faith guides her in making difficult decisions.

May said that the Brexit debate keeps her up at night, but her faith is helping her with her decision-making.

“Well, it is a moment of change. It is a hugely challenging time. And we need to get on with the deal in terms of Brexit. And I’m very conscious of that. I want to make sure that everything we do ensures Britain is a country that works for everyone.

“I suppose there is something in terms of faith, I am a practising member of the Church of England and so forth, that lies behind what I do …

"I’ll think it through, have a gut instinct, look at the evidence, work through the arguments, because you have to think through the unintended consequences.

"But ultimately, if you’ve done all that and you believe it’s the right thing to do, then you should go and do it — but sometimes it is difficult.”

May is the only child of a clergyman.

She also revealed in the interview with The Telegraph that the stylist behind her good fashion sense is her husband, Philip, who chooses her handbags and accessories.

May added that Philip has been a great help to her as she assumed the role of Prime Minister, in addition to being her fashion advisor.
