Theresa May

P.M. Theresa May

July 24, 2016 – The Economist

Theresa May, Britain’s prime minister, bucked political orthodoxy by elevating “industrial strategy” to the top of her new government’s agenda.

What is also disturbing is the fact that only 10 of the 102 cases in 2015 where an unarmed Black person was killed by police resulted in officers being charged with a crime.
