With these words Thursday May made clear that she is a candidate for the party leadership of the Conservatives. Except to characterize herself the words were primarily intended as a swipe at her party colleague Boris Johnson. Which considered them at that time as its main rival. Now they will have to focus its efforts on other attackers.
