I welcome the Prime Minister's announcement that she will seek a General Election on June 8th. It is right to seek a mandate to deliver Brexit and re-establish a program for government drafted by our current Prime Minister. We need to be a united Great Britain when we approach the negotiations with the European Union, with strong and stable leadership at home that is not tainted by uncertainty. Locally, I would very much like to be standing again as the Conservative candidate, fighting hard on the crucial issues that are so important to our area and that I care so deeply about. We have made great progress since 2015 and I look forward to continuing that work should you elect me to do so.
