Theresa May's true nature?

A gut-busting take on Theresa May by Andy Serkis, who is probably best known for portraying Gollum in the Lord of the Rings films:

I get the feeling that Serkis himself is a Remainer. But this performance can be interpreted a few different ways, I think: Theresa May clearly comes off as scorning the will of the people, but is she scorning the will of the original Brexiteers, who voted long ago and now simply want Brexit to push forward as a clean separation with minimal damage to Great Britain, or is she scorning what may be the people's supposed desire for a re-vote? Again, if we go by Serkis's presumed political sensibilities (with few exceptions, actor = leftie), it's probably the latter, but the comedy sketch itself can be read either way.
