Theresa May warns of possible difficult times for Britain’s economy
LONDON: UK Prime Minister Theresa May warned of possible difficult times ahead for Britain’s economy in an interview as she sought to build post-Brexit trade ties at the G20 summit in China screened on Sunday.
Speaking to BBC, May also ruled out a new general election anytime soon, saying Britain needed stability following June’s referendum vote to pull out of the European Union. She voiced optimism about the health of Britain’s economy but warned that there could be tough times ahead.
She further said “I’m not going to pretend that it’s all going to be plain sailing.” But I think we must be prepared for the fact that there may be some difficult times ahead. But what I am is optimistic,” she added.
May, who took office in July after David Cameron quit following the referendum also confirmed Downing Street briefings that she is not intending to call a general election soon.
