It might not be in the job description, but Theresa May has wasted no time in ensuring her premiership will be known for its hypocrisy.

This Writer is willing to bet she has started as she means to continue.

Theresa May… has seemingly performed an about turn on her plans for a policy of opposing foreign takeovers of British businesses less than a week after it was announced in Birmingham.

May said on Monday that she personally called chief executive of Japanese company SoftBank about the £24 billion takeover of the UK’s biggest global technology company, ARM Holdings, to congratulate him on the deal.
