On becoming prime minister in July, May placed both pro-Brexit and "Remain" politicians in the top government positions. However, all appeared to take tough stances on what a post-Brexit will look like during their conference speeches this week, showing that May's mantra – that "Brexit means Brexit" – has been adopted whole-heartedly (at least in public) by those in the cabinet.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd used her conference speech on Tuesday to outline controversial plans on immigration, saying British businesses will have to reveal how many foreign staff they employ in a bid to make them hire more British workers.
Rudd said that foreign workers should not "take the jobs that British people should do" and also vowed to limit the number of foreign students on "lower quality courses." Needless to say, the comments prompted a backlash from businesses and universities.
Meanwhile, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said Britain would train more doctors so it doesn't have to rely on foreign medics to fill an over-stretched and under-staffed health service.
The Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union David Davis continued in a similar vein, saying Britain would put British workers first after it leaves the EU.
Worryingly for the City of London's financial sector, Davis said that there were no plans to negotiate any separate "deal" to protect the U.K's finance industry during Brexit talks.
This could mean that the City might stand to lose its "passporting rights" which have allowed international banks access to EU markets via the U.K. He also said the auto industry would have no special access to the EU's single market.
