May takes cen­tre stage

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Bri­tish Prime Minister Theresa May has vowed to gov­ern from the “cen­tre ground” of pol­i­tics, a day af­ter her govern­ment alarmed lib­er­als by say­ing that busi­nesses should pri­ori­tise hiring Bri­tish work­ers over for­eign ones. May closed the Con­ser­va­tive Party’s an­nual con­fer­ence yes­ter­day with a speech that called the June 23 vote to leave the Euro­pean Union “a quiet revo­lu­tion” by mil­lions who had not ben­e­fited from glob­al­i­sa­tion and rapid eco­nomic change. In a change of tone from pre­de­ces­sor David Cameron – who com­bined so­cial lib­er­al­ism with fis­cal aus­ter­ity and light-touch eco­nomic reg­u­la­tion – May at­tacked cor­po­rate bosses who dodge tax and raid em­ploy­ees’ pen­sion funds.
