Theresa May writes ...

The new leader of the Conservative party writes ...

I am honoured and humbled to have been chosen by the Conservative Party to become its leader.
I would like to pay tribute to the other candidates during the election campaign, and I would like to pay tribute to Andrea Leadsom for the dignity that she has shown today.
During this campaign, my case has been based on three things.
First, the need for strong, proven leadership to steer us through what will be difficult and uncertain economic and political times.

The need of course 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.
Thank you,
Theresa May
Leader of the Conservative Party

Promoted by Alan Mabbutt on behalf of the Conservative Party, both at 4 Matthew Parker Street, London, SW1H 9HQ

Hi Theresa,

not met you yet, but your predecessor i did meet once and he told me to call him "Dave".

However, do like your style so far, carry on this way and I can promise you will have the full support of the Leave Alliance (those pesky people who wrote a comprehensive exit plan, and fought like hell to defend it though thick and thin)

now I do understand that you have the CinC Dr North at the treasury select committee tomorrow, but it was just really a welcome. You stick to the plan and you will obtain the full support from all of us.

So article 50, that is a tough one, you have 2 choices you can play the long game, or you can play the short. I would have prefered the long, but is that viable (politically in the current climate) I am not sure. You see I would have rather waited till after the french/german elections. But if you play the hand right this could work to advantage. Look there is a provision for an "extended period" but nothing in art 50 stating when this should be given. So what we are saying is it could be the first thing "negotiated". You see, give the EU their "immediate" article 50 notification on the agreement the negotiation is extended to 4 years.

clever s**t huh, welcome aboard, don't let us down.
