China's Global Times has praised United Kingdom prime minister Theresa May for her pragmatism in refusing to comment publicly on China's human rights record and the erosion of autonomy in Hong Kong during her three-day visit.

"What's past is prologue", said President Xi Jinping during his one-to-one meeting with May, quoting British playwright William Shakespeare to signal his hopes for strengthening ties.

Asked by Chinese state television about her new moniker - a common Chinese term of endearment for respected women - May said she was honoured, and her officials were privately thrilled that the name had stuck.
