Ex-Prime Minister Theresa May has humorously criticized those who followed her into office, simultaneously cautioning them against engaging in populist political strategies.

Addressing journalists during a gathering at the parliament, she discussed her latest book tour, humorously remarking on the curious placement of competing political books in stores.

"Liz Truss's 10 Years To Save The West?" she joked. "Considering Liz's history and performance, perhaps it ought to be 10 days to save Britain.

"That one likely falls into the science fiction and fantasy category."

She quipped that Boris Johnson's forthcoming memoir would most likely find its place in the 'current affairs' section.

"Solutions in politics are rarely straightforward"

Emphasizing a graver issue, Mrs. May, who will retire as a Member of Parliament at the forthcoming elections, highlighted that her successors must recognize the internal risks facing Western democracies, specifically pointing to populism.

"She noted that populist leaders have emerged globally, and populism tends to create divisions."

"It aims to split our communities and offers simplistic solutions – when, in reality, solutions in politics and governance are rarely straightforward.

"People are likely to be even more disappointed if they reach for the simplistic solution offered by the populist leader."

"Importance of cultivating a service-oriented mindset among politicians"

When questioned whether any of her successors had already succumbed to populism, Mrs. May humorously responded, "Now, let's think, how many successors have I had?"

She also mentioned, "Today's political landscape includes aspects of populism, where there's a certain anticipation of celebrity involvement."

"I believe it's fair to say that some of those who followed me as Prime Minister have leaned more towards the celebrity aspect than I did during my tenure at Number 10."

"I believe it's crucial for us as politicians to foster a spirit of dedication and demonstrate it by serving our constituents effectively."

"Ensuring stability is essential"

The present Prime Minister managed to escape harsh criticism from his predecessor, as Mrs. May stated that Rishi Sunak has introduced "stability" to the position and might even secure victory in the upcoming election.

"She admitted, "Under our administration, [voters] witnessed significant changes and developments, craving stability in return, which I believe Rishi has successfully provided.

"He is achieving success in economic matters, as evidenced by GDP growth, inflation control, and potentially summer interest rates. His commitment to stabilizing these areas is crucial — he's ready to claim, 'I'm here to accomplish the task at hand.'"
