Britain's new Prime Minister Theresa May: Your questions answeredIBTimes UK

Britain will have its second female prime minister by Wednesday evening (13 July), but you could be forgiven for not knowing much about Theresa May.

The Home Secretary, 59, has been at the top of UK politics for more than six years and was crowned Conservative leader after Andrea Leadsom, her only rival, dramatically dropped out of the contest.

However, not much is known about May beyond her current remit. Her foreign policy views, stance on media and sports, opinion on the arts and business expertise remains somewhat of a mystery.
