Stephen Bates welcomes the Prime Minister's call for a General Election on 8th June 2017

I very much welcome the Prime Minister's call for a General Election on 8th June 2017:

  • We need this election now to secure the strong and stable leadership the country needs to see us through Brexit and beyond.
  • Every vote cast for Theresa May and the Conservatives will strengthen Britain’s hand in the Brexit negotiations.
  • We will stick to our Plan for a Stronger Britain and take the right long-term decisions for a more secure future.
  • The choice is between strong and stable leadership in the national interest with Theresa May and the Conservatives – or weak and unstable coalition government led by Jeremy Corbyn.
