British PM says Brexit keeps her awake at night

admitted on Sunday that of all of the challenges she faces as Britain's Prime Minister, it is the challenge of how to make "a country that works for everyone" after that keeps her awake at night.

"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 is a country that works for everyone.

"And that we really get out there and forge a new role in the world post-Brexit. We can make a success of it, we will make a success of it. But these are really complex issues," the Guardian quoted her as saying.

May said her faith as "a practising member of the and so forth" lay behind what she does.

"It's not like I've decided to do what I'm going to do and I'm stubborn. 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 gave her first interview in her new home to the Sunday Times magazine. The "huge challenges" she acknowledged were highlighted as the paper reported that the Governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney, has floated the idea that British firms should have an extended transition period, with continued access to the single market for two years after leaves the European Union.

She revealed that she had to borrow the striking navy and yellow coat for her first appearance outside Downing Street as Prime Minister, because it all happened so fast her wardrobe was still at her constituency home in Maidenhead. May and her husband, Philip, have since had to buy more furniture for the domestic quarters upstairs, she said, because their former London flat was smaller.

She does not use a stylist, but paid tribute to the useful advice from her husband, who often comes on shopping trips with her. "He's good at accessories too, particularly good at choosing handbags and bracelets for presents, and good at flowers," she said.
