I genuinely really adored listening to her. She seems like a wonderful role model; hardworking, triumphant at overcoming her past and purely hopeful and thankful. Thank you for this.

So basically if things go well it's due to Brexit, if things go badly it's due to a myriad of factors. Shirking all responsibility.
