Statement from the Prime Minister    

I will deliver the strong and proven leadership the country needs to steer us through what will be difficult and uncertain economic and political times.

We need  to negotiate the best deal for Britain in leaving the EU and to forge a new role for ourselves in the world.

Brexit means Brexit and we’re going to make a success of it.

Second, we need to unite our country.

And third, we need a strong, new, and positive vision for the future of our country. A vision of a country that works not for the privileged few but works for every one of us.

Because we’re going to give people more control over their lives.

That’s how together we will build a better Britain.
