The complacent lass?

The Easter message confirmed something about Mrs May that continues to escape some of the commentary about her. She is a believer in things. She has her own view of the world and it comes, if not from scripture, then at least from the Anglican cast of mind.

She favours a gentle society over a dynamic one, views the market with the suspicion of a mild social democrat and takes nationhood more seriously than the universalist end of Christianity tends to. None of these beliefs are extreme but they are held with enough strength to drive the government.

That is Janan Ganesh on Teresa May (FT).  Here is a good BBC analysis of some of the game-theoretic considerations, and one that makes May look a bit less complacent (and less of a lass, too).
