But you only get that with a strong economy and you only get that with a Conservative government.feedback

Jul 19 2017

What I say to Sarah, and to those working in the National Health Service, is that we recognise the excellent work that they're doing. We recognise the sacrifice that they and others have made over the last seven years.feedback

Jul 18 2017

There is a need to show strength and unity as a country and that starts around the cabinet table.feedback

Brexit is now becoming just another job for the boys.feedback

Jul 17 2017

We are not leaving only to return to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. That is not going to happen.feedback

Jul 15 2017

Since the government announcement last week, we have come into contact with some people in this situation and, if there are more of them, we want them to have the confidence to come forward and speak to us. The main concerns relate to undocumented people not coming forward because of fears about their immigration status after 12 months. Firstly, that will have an impact on the world of the inquiry because you are potentially losing the number of eyewitnesses that could be there. Second, it's about making sure that people are able to access the provisions that the government has put in place.feedback

Jul 13 2017

When the result came through it was complete shock. It took a few minutes for it to sink in what it was telling me. When it came to the actual result there were a lot of people within the party who had been very close to the campaign who were genuinely shocked by the result as it came through.feedback

Jul 13 2017

I still see there is a lot that we need to do, and as prime minister I want to get on with that job of changing people's lives for the better.feedback

Jul 13 2017

It took a few minutes for it to sort of sink in, what that was telling me. My husband gave me a hug.feedback

Jul 13 2017

When the result came through, it was a complete shock.feedback

Jul 13 2017

What I want to do is just recognise that there is a job to be done here, over the next few years. I want to get on with doing that job. My view is I have always said that I would be here for the full term, but what I have also said is that over the years I have given my life to this Conservative party and I will serve as long as they want me to serve.feedback

Jul 13 2017

Yes, a little tear, at that moment.feedback

Jul 13 2017

You're a human being, you've been through that experience, but I was there as leader of the party and prime minister and had a responsibility then, as we went through the night, to determine what we were going to do the next morning.feedback

Jul 13 2017

The coveted Protected Geographical Indication status is a fantastic recognition of the hard work you and your family have put into the business, and it is great news for London and the UK food industry as a whole. It is a particular achievement to be the first London-based food to be recognised in this way.feedback

Jul 13 2017

Going through that night I was seeing really good colleagues who I'd worked with, who were losing their seats. Again, I used the word devastating, because it is pretty devastating – it's very distressing when you see people that you know have done a good job lose their seats. I called the election, I led the campaign and I take responsibility for what happened. But there's also a responsibility for the future, for the country, and that was about ensuring the country had a government.feedback

Jul 13 2017

One of the important things with that deal, was that we were very clear that the Conservative party was not going to row back at all in anything we've done on the equalities agenda.feedback

Jul 13 2017

But that did not come across during the election campaign.feedback

Jul 13 2017

I don't think that vision came through sufficiently during the campaign.feedback

Jul 13 2017

I have got a job to do. My view is I have always said that I would be here for the full term, but what I have also said is that over the years I have given my life to this Conservative Party and I will serve as long as they want me to serve.feedback

Jul 12 2017

I have been horrified by stories from colleagues about the scale and nature of the intimidation, bullying and harassment they suffered during the general election campaign. Robust debate is a vital part of our democracy, but there can be no place for the shocking threats and abuse we have seen in recent months.feedback

Jul 12 2017

We must all work together to banish this behaviour, and I would urge MPs and candidates from all parties to report their experiences to this review so we get the fullest possible picture - and can take the action required to stamp it out.feedback

Jul 11 2017

While avoiding overbearing regulation, we will make sure people have the rights and protections they need, that means building on our high employment rate and low unemployment rate and continuing to strive for full employment.feedback

Jul 10 2017

I immediately asked the Chief Whip to suspend the party whip. Language like this has absolutely no place in politics or in today's society.feedback

So I say to the other parties in the House of Commons… come forward with your own views and ideas about how we can tackle these challenges as a country.feedback

Jul 09 2017

My commitment to change in Britain is undimmed; my belief in the potential of the British people and what we can achieve together as a nation remains steadfast; and the determination I have to get to grips with the challenges posed by a changing world never more sure.feedback

Jul 09 2017

In this new context, it will be even more important to make the case for our policies and our values, and to win the battle of ideas both in Parliament as well as in the country.feedback

Jul 08 2017 - Climate change

Like other world leaders here, I am dismayed at the US decision to pull out of the Paris agreement and I have urged President Trump to rejoin the Paris agreement. The UK's own commitment to the Paris agreement and tackling global climate change is as strong as ever. I did bring the issue of the climate change agreement up with President Trump, I've had a number of conversations with him over the time I have been here at the G20. When I brought it up with him, what I did was I encouraged him to bring the United States back into the Paris agreement.feedback

Jul 08 2017 - London

That is precisely why that call was made from the beginning to state that residents should be rehoused locally, because it's been known for some time that they've been bussing people out of this area. That's been an issue for many, many years around here, and that's one of the reasons that comments were made earlier in terms of the social cleansing of this area.feedback

Jul 08 2017 - G20

I have held a number of meetings with other world leaders at this summit and have been struck by their strong desire to forge ambitious new trading relationships with the UK after Brexit. This is a powerful vote of confidence in British goods, British services, Britain's economy and the British people – and we look forward to building on these conversations in the months ahead.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - British elections 2017

What I'm very clear about is there should be no suggestion that the threat of vandalism should stop a statue of Margaret Thatcher from being put up.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - Climate change

On climate change I've already made clear our position to President Trump, there will be a discussion about the US position, I and others at that table will be encouraging President Trump to look at ways America can come back into the Paris Agreement.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - North Korea

What we need to see is China, who can exercise influence on North Korea playing a greater role in doing that, if there are proposals to tighten sanctions and extend sanctions then we would support that.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - British elections 2017

I said during the election campaign that if re-elected I would intend to serve a full term.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - British elections 2017

The 19 countries sitting around the table will be listening and will be taking us seriously and will be working with us.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - Brexit

I'm doing absolutely what I always do which is getting on with the job, which is delivering a stable government for the United Kingdom, ensuring that we focus on the key issue of getting those Brexit negotiations right.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - British elections 2017

There's two ways the government can react to that. We can be very timid and sit back or we can be bold and that's what we are going to be. I think it was the right decision to actually call that election. I'd hoped for a different result. As you know, I think mental health is an issue that has been left to one side for too long and we need to firmly address that in everybody's interests.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - British elections 2017

I think what's important is that we get on with the job and getting on with the job is about delivering for people.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - G20

I believe that is possible. We are not renegotiating the Paris agreement. That stays.feedback

Jul 06 2017 - Syria conflict

As we deny physical space to terrorists to operate in theatre, we must outpace the terrorist methodology as it develops to attack other vulnerable targets and increases inspired attacks. We must therefore combat the threat from every angle. This includes taking measures against permissive environments for terrorist financing, and monitoring the dispersal of foreign fighters from battle.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - British elections 2017

I am confident that Great Ormond Street Hospital have and always will consider any offers or new information that has come forward with consideration of the well-being of a desperately ill child.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Greece

This is not a theoretical issue. Let us look at those countries that failed to deal with it. In Greece, where they have not dealt with the deficit ... What did we see with that failure to deal with the deficit? Spending on the health service cut by 36%. That does not help nurses or patients. The difference is, I know we have to pay for them.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Labour Party

We need to balance the need to be fair to public sector workers, to protect jobs in the public sector and to be fair to those who pay for it.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Labour Party

It isn't fair to refuse to take tough decision and to load debt on our children and grandchildren. It isn't fair to bankrupt our economy, because that leads to people losing their jobs, and losing their homes. And it isn't fair to go out and tell people that they can have all the public spending they want without paying for it.feedback

Jul 04 2017 - British elections 2017

You're either for fox hunting or you're against it and some people feel passionately on both sides of this. I was brought up in the countryside and yes, I do support fox hunting.feedback

Jul 04 2017 - British elections 2017

In the Conservative manifesto there would be a free vote in parliament and it would not be whipped by party.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - French Election Results

In the UK we are already working with social media companies to halt the spread of extremist material and poisonous propaganda that is warping young minds. I can announce that the UK and France will work together to encourage corporations to do more and abide by their social responsibility to step up their efforts to remove harmful content from their networks, including exploring the possibility of creating a new legal liability for tech companies if they fail to remove unacceptable content.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - British elections 2017

Our economy should work for everyone, but if your pay has stagnated for several years in a row and fixed items of spending keep going up, it doesn't feel like it's working for you.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - British elections 2017

I got us into this mess and I'll get us out of it.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - British elections 2017

This is not a presidential system – we don't operate one. We should not start pretending that we do – when prime ministers set a date for departure way in advance is to undermine the office.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - Brexit

It is very important in terms of the Brexit negotiation – she would be doing a Cameron [who told the BBC he would not stand for a third term in March 2015].feedback

Jul 03 2017 - Brexit

If I am elected I will certainly serve my full term … the two years of Brexit negotiations are due to finish in 2019. I have always said there may be an implementation period. I want to make sure Brexit happens and it is a good deal for the UK.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - British elections 2017

My strong view is that she should not be wasting her time setting out her timetable for departure – she should just be getting on with her job.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - British elections 2017

I said during the election campaign that if re-elected I would intend to serve a full term. But what I'm doing now is actually getting on with the immediate job. And I think that's what's important, I think that's what the public would expect.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - British elections 2017

I am determined that there will be justice for all the victims of this terrible tragedy and for their families who have suffered so terribly.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - British elections 2017

Before the inquiry starts Sir Martin will consult all those with an interest, including survivors and victims' families, about the terms of reference. Following that consultation he will make a recommendation to me. I will return to parliament with the final terms of reference once this process has taken place. Then the inquiry will begin its work.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - Labour Party

I expect [students] will turn up in their Corbyn T-shirts and he will relish in it.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Brexit

For very practical reasons, when we know what the future relationship with the EU will be, we may need implementation periods. We made that point in our Article 50 letter to ensure that the practical arrangements can be put in place for that new relationship. But I'm very clear, this does not mean that unlimited transitional phase. We are going to leave the European Union, that's what people wanted, that's what we will deliver.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Labour Party

It is a matter that has occurred under governments of both colours, under councils of all political persuasions and is something that I would hope we would say we should come together and ensure that we get to the answers over why this has happened over many years, what has gone wrong, and how do we stop it from happening in the future.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Labour Party

It is an issue which has been continuing for many years, for decades, in terms of cladding being put up in buildings. There are real questions as to how this has happened, why it happened and how we can ensure that it doesn't happen in the future.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Labour Party

We need to get to the bottom of it, and that's what we're going to do.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - British elections 2017

The cladding of tower blocks began under the Blair government.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Brexit

I think that was the clear message from the general election and I think now is the time for the United Kingdom to be pulling together, not being driven apart.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Scottish independence

What I think Nicola Sturgeon should be saying today is that she's going to completely take off the table the question of Indy Ref 2, a second independence referendum in Scotland. I think that was the clear message from the general election and I think now is the time for the United Kingdom to be pulling together, not being driven apart.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Northern Ireland

We very much want to see that protected and enhanced and we also share the desire to ensure a strong government, able to put through its programme and provide for issues like the Brexit negotiations, but also national security issues.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - British elections 2017

I want to completely reassure people that under these plans, no EU citizen currently in the UK lawfully will be asked to leave at the point the UK leaves the EU. We want you to stay.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - Labour Party

People who say that we should be not dealing on this as a reciprocal basis simply don't understand what negotiations are about, because the other side will be negotiating on these issues.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - Labour Party

He talks about the issue of no deal being better than a bad deal. I'll tell him what I worry about in terms of a bad deal: I worry about those who appear to suggest in Europe that we should be punished in some sense for leaving the European Union.feedback

Jun 25 2017 - London

Absolutely our first priority is people's safety.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - British elections 2017

It is wonderful that we mark the tremendous job that our armed forces do for us here at home and across the world, helping to keep us safe. Of course recently, after the terrible terrorist attack in Manchester, we saw our armed forces on the streets helping to reassure people of their safety and security, and it's great that we recognise the work that all our armed forces do, as I say, both here and across the world.feedback

Jun 24 2017 - British elections 2017

For those Camden blocks, it wasn't just a question of the cladding; there were a number of issues that came together that meant that the fire service were concerned about those blocks and the action was taken by the local authority. We are making sure that the authority has the ability to do what is necessary to ensure people have somewhere to stay and that the work is done so that those tower blocks will become safe for them to return to in the future.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - Homosexuality

We're looking carefully at the extent of the problem, and the experience of other countries that have introduced bans, to ensure we get the approach to this right.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - Brexit

I want to reassure all those EU citizens who are in the U.K., who've made their lives and homes in the U.K., that no one will have to leave, we won't be seeing families split apart. This is a fair and serious offer.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - French election 2017

No one will have to leave. We won't be seeing families split apart.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - British elections 2017

What I am going to be setting out is clearly how the United Kingdom proposes to protect the rights of EU citizens living in the UK and see the rights of UK citizens in Europe protected.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - British elections 2017

I think what voters voted for when they voted to leave the EU was to ensure that, outside the European Union, the United Kingdom could establish our own rules on migration, from the EU into the UK, and that is exactly what we will be doing.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - British elections 2017

The corporation tax yield has gone shooting up since the government reduced the rates of corporation tax providing more money for the National Health Service, Schools, Social Care and the other Public Services - so please show a bit of financial literacy.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - Brexit

The commitment that we make to EU citizens will be enshrined in EU law and enforced through our highly-respected courts.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - British elections 2017

I'm going to be setting out some of the UK's plans, particularly on how we propose to protect the rights of EU citizens and UK citizens as we leave the European Union.feedback

Jun 22 2017

I am going to be setting out today is clearly how the UK proposes to protect the rights of EU citizens living in the UK and see the rights of the British citizens living in Europe protected, that's been an important issue.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - British elections 2017

Mr Speaker what became clear very quickly is the the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea could not cope and it is right that the Chief Executive Officer has now resigned.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - British elections 2017

As a precaution, the government has arranged to test cladding in all relevant tower blocks. Mr. Speaker, shortly before I came to the chamber, I was informed that a number of these tests have come back as combustible. The relevant local authorities and local fire services have been informed, and as I speak they are taking all possible steps to ensure buildings are safe and to inform affected residents.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - London

In terms of the people who are living in those buildings, we will do a further test to make sure the buildings are safe–obviously nobody will be living in buildings that are unsafe.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - Immigration

For any guilty parties there will be nowhere to hide.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - British elections 2017

People were left without belongings, without roofs over their heads, without even basic information about what had happened, what they should do and where they could seek help. That was a failure of the state, local and national, to help people when they needed it the most. As prime minister I apologise for that failure.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - London

They have been looking at the cause of the fire and any contributory factors to the fire. They are testing the cladding on the building and they expect to make the results of this public, I think in the next 48 hours.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - Brexit

The U.K.'s position represents a fair and serious offer.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - British elections 2017

Reciprocity was, of course, vital. Both sides should seek to agree terms and give certainty as early as possible in the talks.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - London

We cannot and will not ask people to live in unsafe homes.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - Immigration

I would like to reassure people that we will not use this tragic incident as a reason to carry out immigration checks on those involved or on those providing information to identify victims or those assisting with the criminal investigation. We will make sure that all victims, irrespective of their immigration status, will be able to access the services they need including healthcare and accommodation.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - London

We cannot and will not allow people to live in unsafe homes.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - London

We can test over 100 buildings a day and the results come within hours. I urge any landlord who owns a building of this kind to send samples for testing as soon as possible. Any results will be communicated immediately to local authorities and local fire services.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - British elections 2017

We will make markets fairer including measures to tackle unfair practices in the energy and telecoms markets.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - British elections 2017

If that does not work, we will change the law to allow us to use a better definition of development spending, while continuing to meet our 0.7 per cent target.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - Brexit

While this will be a government that consults and listens, we are clear that we are going to see Brexit through, working with parliament, business, the devolved administrations and others to ensure a smooth and orderly withdrawal.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - Brexit

The election result was not the one I hoped for, but this government will respond with humility and resolve to the message the electorate sent. We will work hard every day to gain the trust and confidence of the British people, making their priorities our priorities.feedback

Jun 20 2017 - Northern Ireland

Much has been said in recent days about what the general election signified about Britain's decision to leave the EU. The fact is that over 80% of the electorate backed the two major parties, both of whom campaigned on manifestos that said we should honour the democratic decision of the British people.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - London

Extra police resources have already been deployed to reassure communities, and the police will continue to assess the security needs of mosques and provide any additional resources needed. The terrible terrorist attack which took place last night was an evil born out of hatred and it has devastated a community. I am pleased to have been here today to see the strength of that community coming together, all faiths united in one desire to see extremism and hatred of all sorts driven out of our society.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - London

There is no place for this hatred in our country today and we need to work together as one society, one community, to drive it out, this evil which is affecting so many families.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - British elections 2017

That is why this government will act to stamp out extremist and hateful ideology – both across society and on the internet, so it is denied a safe space to grow.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Terrorism

This morning we have seen a sickening attempt to destroy those freedoms, and to break those bonds of citizenship that define our United Kingdom. It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms, and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Islamophobia

As I said here two weeks ago, there has been far too much tolerance of extremism in our country over many years – and that means extremism of any kind, including Islamophobia.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - British elections 2017

Extra police resources have already been deployed to reassure communities, and the police will continue to assess the security needs of mosques and provide any additional resources needed.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - London

This was an attack on Muslims near their place of worship.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Islamophobia

Hatred and evil of this kind will never succeed.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - British elections 2017

All my thoughts are with those who have been injured, their loved ones and the emergency services on the scene.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - British elections 2017

All my thoughts are with the victims, their families and the emergency services on the scene.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Islamophobia

Because this extremism is every bit as insidious and destructive to our values and our way of life and we will stop at nothing to defeat it.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - British elections 2017

Boris Johnson regularly sees Michael when he is staying at Chevening. Michael is the MP for Sevenoaks and lives five minutes from Chevening. They had a catch up over a pint as they have done on many occasions.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - British elections 2017

As we continue to respond to the needs of the community, our focus is on ensuring that all of those affected by this unimaginable tragedy get the right support as quickly as possible.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - British elections 2017

Frankly, the support on the ground for families who needed help or basic information in the initial hours after this appalling disaster was not good enough.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - British elections 2017

What I'm now absolutely focused on is ensuring that we get that support on the ground.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - British elections 2017

In practice there may be difficulties if you have an inquiry that is looking into exactly the same thing a criminal investigation is looking into because the inquiry is not going to want to do anything that is going to prejudice that criminal investigation.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - British elections 2017

It's absolutely horrifying and I've been hearing stories today from people about their experiences. I've also been hearing from the local community about the issues and concerns that they have. Now the government is making five million pounds available as emergency funds for people who need just to get money to be able to buy the normal things of everyday life.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - British elections 2017

(This aims) to give the victims the immediate support they need to care for themselves and for loved ones. We will continue to look at what more needs to be done.feedback

She "spoke with people who ran from the fire in only the clothes they were wearing.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Single market

The United Kingdom does not seek membership of the single market: we understand and respect your position that the four freedoms of the single market are indivisible and there can be no 'cherry picking.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - British elections 2017

What I am now absolutely focused on is ensuring we get that support on the ground. The government is making money available, we are ensuring we are going to get to the bottom of what has happened, we will ensure that people are re-housed. We need to make sure that actually happens.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - British elections 2017

The government has taken action on the recommendations of the coroner's report. The government is doing everything in its power to ensure that people are safe. We have identified those buildings and now and over the weekend people are going in and inspecting those buildings.feedback

Jun 15 2017 - British elections 2017

When I visited the scene, when I spoke to the emergency services, they told me the way this fire progressed, how it took hold of this building, was rapid, it was ferocious and it was unexpected. People deserve answers; the inquiry will give them.feedback

Jun 15 2017 - British elections 2017

I heard stories of firefighters running into the building being protected from the falling debris by police officers using their riot shields. And we thank all our emergency services for the incredible work that they have done.feedback

Jun 15 2017 - British elections 2017

When it's possible to identify the cause of this fire, then of course there will be proper investigation and if there are any lessons to be learnt they will be, and action will be taken.feedback

Jun 15 2017 - British elections 2017

We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed. Yet that is precisely what the internet – and the big companies that provide internet-based services – provide.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - Brexit

Every vote for me and my team will strengthen my hand in the Brexit negotiations.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - French Election Results

Our discussions today have focused on the greatest security challenge our two countries face: tackling terrorism and rooting out the extremism that fuels it. Both our countries have sadly experienced the horrors of terrorism all too recently.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - French Election Results

We're launching a joint UK-French campaign to ensure that the internet cannot be used as a safe space for terrorists and criminals, and that it cannot be used to host the radicalising material that leads to so much harm.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Brexit

I confirmed to President Macron that the timetable for the Brexit negotiation remains on course and will begin next week.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Northern Ireland

We remain steadfast in our commitment to the Belfast agreement. A discussion taking place on the Northern Ireland executive and our focus is absolute. In talks with DUP we want to ensure with their support we give stability which is important ahead of the Brexit negotiations. Our intent is to have stability in the national interest. We have worked with the DUP before.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Syria conflict

Nowhere is our cooperation closer than in the area of defence and security, with British and French fighter pilots flying alongside one another and in each other's planes over Syria and Iraq to strike Daesh [Isil] at its heart, or our troops deployed together in Estonia to provide reassurance to our eastern allies in the face of Russian aggression.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - French election 2017

The UK and France will work together to encourage corporations to do more and abide by their social responsibility to step up their efforts to remove harmful content from their networks. We are launching a joint UK-French campaign to ensure that the internet cannot be used as a safe space for terrorists and criminals.feedback

We are united in our total condemnation of terrorism and our commitment to stamp out this evil.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Labour Party

As we face difficult challenges ahead, let us come together in a sprit of national unity to keep our country safe and build a stronger, fairer and more prosperous future for everyone in every part of our United Kingdom.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - British elections 2017

I think there is a unity of purpose among people in the United Kingdom. It's a unity of purpose, having voted to leave the EU, that their government gets on with that and makes a success of it.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Labour Party

Some people blame politics for these divisions, or say there is too much politics. But politics can be an incredible force for good. Conducted in the right way it can be how we resolve our differences, how we deal with injustices and how we take, not shirk the big decisions.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Labour Party

At least somebody got a landslide. While there is further to go, if there is one outcome from this election we can all welcome, it is surely this: that today we have the most diverse and most representative parliament in our history.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - Brexit

Crucially I've brought in talent from across the whole of the Conservative Party. This is the government that is going to be governing for everyone. We want a country that works for everyone, bringing that talent together to ensure that we can get on with the job of delivering the successful Brexit.feedback

That's the last thing the country needs. She said she would serve us as long as we want her, and that she's been a party servant since she was 12 years old, stuffing envelopes.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - British elections 2017

She was very concerned about people who have lost their seats, the party is going to help them, some of them are in dire financial situations. She did say sorry, several times. She apologised for colleagues losing their seat, for making the call about the early election.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - British elections 2017

I am pleased that people from across the party have agreed to serve in my cabinet and we are going to be getting on with the job. I said during the election campaign if re-elected I would serve a full term … What I am doing now is actually getting on with the immediate job. I think that's what's important. I think that's what the public would expect, they want to see government providing that certainty and stability.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Brexit

At this important time for our country, they need stability and certainty provided by the government and that's what I've been doing today, putting together a cabinet that reflects the wealth and talent and experience across Conservative Party. A cabinet that will get on with the job of government, that's about delivering a successful Brexit negotiations and those negotiations start in a week's time.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - British elections 2017

It's not just rearranging the deckchairs, a new approach will be absolutely essential. She can do it, all she needs to do is want to do it.feedback

I've been putting together a Cabinet that reflects the wealth of talent and experience across the Conservative Party.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Northern Ireland

We will welcome any such deal being agreed, as it will provide the stability and certainty the whole country requires as we embark on Brexit and beyond. As and when details are finalised, both parties will put them forward.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - British elections 2017

As I reflect on the results I will reflect on what we need to do in the future to take the party forward.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - British elections 2017

I want to reflect on the election and why it did not deliver the result I hoped for. Gavin will have an important role to play in that.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

Our two parties have enjoyed a strong relationship over the many years. This gives me the confidence to believe that we will be able to work together in the interests of the whole United Kingdom.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

What the country needs more than ever is certainty and having secured the largest number of votes and the greatest number of seats in the general election, it is clear that only the Conservative and Unionist party has the legitimacy and the ability to provide that certainty by commanding a majority in the House of Commons. This will allow us to come together as a country and channel our energies towards a successful Brexit deal that works for everyone in this country.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

This government will guide the country through the crucial Brexit talks ... and deliver on the will of the British people by taking the United Kingdom out of the European Union.feedback

Our political traditions are different. We have little history of coalition government.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - British elections 2017

And if, as the indications have shown and if this is correct that the Conservative Party has won the most seats and probably the most votes, then it will be incumbent on us to ensure we have that period of stability - and that is exactly what we will do.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - British elections 2017

The country needs a period of stability and whatever the result the Conservative Party will ensure that we fulfill our duty in ensuring that stability.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Brexit

I can only build that better country and get the right deal in Brussels with the support of the British people. So whoever you have voted for in the past, if that is the future you want then vote Conservative today and we can all go forward together.feedback

If we get Brexit right, we can build a Britain that is more prosperous and more secure, a Britain in which prosperity and opportunity is shared by all.feedback

Today is a day for everybody across the country to fix their sights on the future and vote for a better future of fairness, security and opportunity for all.feedback

Because I and my team have the plan to ensure we get the Brexit negotiations right and they start 11 days after election day.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - British elections 2017

No, what I have done in getting out and about around the country, I think people do see that is one of the great opportunities is to be able to interact with voters directly, to be able to hear directly from them and them being able to hear directly from me.feedback

He has been campaigning, but he has been campaigning in a number of seats. Rather than just being with me, he has actually been out there knocking on doors and working for other candidates.

I don't tweet so… I was mentally calculating 140 characters.feedback

Give me your backing in the polling station tomorrow to battle for Britain in Brussels. Get those negotiations wrong and the consequences will be dire.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Terrorism

What we need to do now is see how the threat is evolving, and it is evolving, we're seeing terrorism breeding terrorism.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - British elections 2017

As we leave the European Union, we are determined to make the UK the world's most dynamic digital economy with first-class connectivity as we build a brighter future. Our plans to roll out high-speed broadband and extend mobile coverage will mean people can stay connected wherever they live, work, travel and learn – and help end the scourge of not spots.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Brexit

But delivering all this depends on getting Brexit right, which is why I need every vote on Thursday to strengthen my hand in the Brexit negotiations which begin just 11 days after polling day.feedback

I don't much like it, I don't think anybody would when they heard a song about themselves like that.feedback

We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are. Things need to change ... There is – to be frank – far too much tolerance of extremism in our country.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - London

What government needs to do, and what the government that comes in after Thursday's election needs to be willing to do, is to give more powers to the police and security service when they need them, needs to deal with this issue of terrorism and extremism online and also needs to be able to call out extremism here in the United Kingdom.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - British elections 2017

Well, nobody is ever perfectly behaved, are they? I mean, you know, there are times when… I have to confess, when me and my friend, sort of, used to run through the fields of wheat, the farmers weren't too pleased about that.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - British elections 2017

I mean, for anybody there would be, you know, people watching this who will be in similar circumstances of having lost both their parents at a relatively early age and it is quite, you know, it is a shock and of course, as I say, without brothers or sisters to share that with, but that's why it was so good to have Philip but also to have that wider community that provided support to me.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - British elections 2017

I was an only child, so of course I didn't have brothers and sisters who I was playing with and so I obviously had friends but sometimes had to just go out and, sort of, do things on my own.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Northern Ireland

We need to pull together in order to try and deliver on the Brexit negotiations, not trying to drive these four nations apart, which is what Nicola Sturgeon is trying to do. In this week of all weeks we stand together, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as one United Kingdom.feedback

It is time to say enough is enough.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - London

We have protected counter-terrorism policing budgets, we have also provided funding for an increase in the number of armed police officers. This was an attack on London and the United Kingdom, but it was also an attack on the free world.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - London

This was an attack on London and the United Kingdom, but it was also an attack on the free world.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Labour Party

Jeremy Corbyn has boasted that he has opposed those powers and opposed the powers for anti-terror actions throughout his time in parliament. And I also support, absolutely, shoot-to-kill and I think what we saw on our streets on Saturday was how important that was.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - British elections 2017

If it is David Davis, fine. If it is Olly Robins [permanent secretary of the Department for Exiting the European Union] then fine, he knows the files, although maybe less the economic ones. We need to know who we are negotiating with ... I don't think they have a plan.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Labour Party

The commissioner of the Metropolitan Police has said that the Met is well resourced, and they are, and that they have very powerful counterterrorism capabilities, and they do. We have protected counterterrorism policing budgets. We have also provided funding for an increase in the number of armed police officers. Since 2015, we have protected overall police budgets, and that's despite the fact that Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party in the House of Commons suggested that police budgets could be cut.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Terrorism

It is time to say enough is enough. We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are. We believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face as terrorism breeds terrorism. While we have made significant progress in recent years, there is – to be frank – far too much tolerance of extremism in our country.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - British elections 2017

And if we need to increase the length of custodial sentences for terrorist-related offences – even apparently less serious offences – that is what we will do.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Syria conflict

While we have made significant progress in recent years, there is – to be frank – far too much tolerance of extremism in our country.feedback

An attacker attempted to break into Parliament and was shot dead within 20 yards of the gate. If his intention was to gain access to this building we should be clear that he did not succeed. The police heroically did their job.feedback

Following updates from police and security officials, I can confirm that the terrible incident in London is being treated as a potential act of terrorism.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Labour Party

It's the Conservative party that always has been a low tax party, and it's our firm intention to reduce tax for ordinary working families. Our plans on tax have been set up in the manifesto, we are a party that believe in low taxes... when people come to vote they know they have a choice between a party that has always believed in lower taxes and a Labour party whose manifesto we know will cost ordinary working people.feedback

I'm not going to make any excuses for the experience you had. That's why I think it's so important that we do deal with mental health.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - British elections 2017

I've said that I think no deal would be better than a bad deal. Now I'm confident we can get a good deal with the right plan for those negotiations, because I think a good deal is in our interests and in the interests of the rest of the EU. But we have to be prepared to stand up for Britain. We have to be prepared to go in there, recognising that we're not willing to accept a bad deal.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - British elections 2017

The Conservative party continues to believe that these allegations are unfounded. Craig Mackinlay is innocent until proven guilty and he remains our candidate.feedback

I'm being honest with you saying we will put more money in but there isn't a magic money tree that we can shake to get everything we want.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Brexit

We will continue make sure that students get the support that they need, but what's most important is that when they finish studying there are great job opportunities for them to take up. That is why it is important to get the Brexit deal right. We want to be global leaders in free trade and that's around the world...we weren't able to do this as members of the EU. There's a couple of shops that I normally go to when I'm looking for shoes, particularly my kitten heels, that's Russell and Bromley and LK Bennett.feedback

If we are in the scenario, [the electorate] want parties to talk to each other, so to refuse to do that would be against what the electorate wanted.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - London

I think they [EU countries] all benefit from the expertise, the skills, the size of the capability of the City and anything that diminished that would not be sensible for them because they're benefiting from it at the moment. First of all this doesn't happen over night, it takes years to build up the whole ecosystem that supports financial services, and actually London is a benefit, the City of London is a benefit to other countries, to businesses in other countries.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - British elections 2017

We need to make sure that we're getting a good deal for the City in the future. I would hope that actually what people will see in the remaining 27 member states is the significant role that the City plays in supporting their economies and their businesses and also the fact that it has taken many years for the City to build up those expertise, to build up that ecosystem. That can't be done by somebody else at the drop of a hat.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Brexit

If they do, I am confident that we can fulfill the promise of Brexit together and build a Britain that is stronger, fairer and even more prosperous than it is today.feedback

May 31 2017 - Labour Party

If we get Brexit right, then together we can do great things.feedback

May 31 2017 - Labour Party

I think we should all worry about the alternative. The alternative is the possibility of Jeremy Corbyn being Prime Minister and John McDonnell being in charge of our economic future and Diane Abbott in charge of our national security and all the time the strings being pulled by the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish nationalists.feedback

May 31 2017 - Immigration

What we need to do is have proper control of our immigration and, of course, we are going to be able to put in rules for people coming from the EU to the UK once we leave the European Union. I want to ensure we control migration. Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party want uncontrolled migration.feedback

May 31 2017 - Labour Party

There's a very clear choice at this election; there's a very clear difference between myself, and Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party. I want to ensure we are controlling migration because too high uncontrolled migration puts pressure on our public services, but it also lowers wages at the lower end of the income scale.feedback

May 30 2017 - Labour Party

But if you don't vote at this election and if you don't vote for me at this election you risk sleepwalking into the very real danger that Jeremy Corbyn will find himself in the hot seat, in the negotiating chair on your behalf.feedback

Your vote is more important than ever because every vote for me in this election will if I am returned as Prime Minister strengthen my hand in the negotiations that are about to start.feedback

May 27 2017 - Terrorism

This is an ongoing investigation and obviously the police and security services are continuing to look into the terrible attack that took place but significant activity has taken place by the police over the last 24 hours and it is in the light of that that the independent JTAC, the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre, has taken the decision to reduce the threat level from 'critical' to 'severe' but the public should be clear that a 'severe' threat level does mean that an attack is highly likely and everyone should remain vigilant.feedback

May 27 2017 - Labour Party

A significant amount of police activity has taken place over the last 24 hours and there are now 11 suspects in custody. The public should be clear about what this means. A threat level of severe means an attack is highly likely. The country should remain vigilant. I want to make one thing very clear to Jeremy Corbyn and to you, and it is that there can never, ever be an excuse for terrorism.feedback

May 27 2017 - British elections 2017

Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before. We will not quit or operate in fear. We won't let this divide us. We won't let hate win.feedback

May 27 2017 - British elections 2017

We need to be stronger and more resolute in standing up to these people. There is clearly a role for government in tackling extremism where it involves behaviour that is or ought to be criminal. But there is also a role for government to help people and build up organisations in society to promote and defend Britain's pluralistic values, and stand up to the extremists.feedback

May 27 2017 - British elections 2017

As we saw when Cadbury's – that great Birmingham company – was bought by Kraft, or when AstraZeneca was almost sold to Pfizer, transient shareholders, who are mostly companies investing other people's money, are not the only people with an interest when firms are sold or close. Workers have a stake, local communities have a stake, and often the whole country has a stake. A proper industrial strategy wouldn't automatically stop the sale of British firms to foreign ones.feedback

I have been here with the G7, working with other international leaders to fight terrorism. At the same time, Jeremy Corbyn has said that terror attacks in Britain are our own fault and he has chosen to do that a few days after one of the worst terrorist atrocities we have experienced in the United Kingdom. I want to make something clear to Jeremy Corbyn and to you: there can never be an excuse for terrorism, there can be no excuse for what happened in Manchester.feedback

I am also going to be pushing the UK's agenda on burden-sharing and we are proud, as the UK, that we meet the target of spending 2% of our GDP on defence and 20% of our defence budget on equipment.

The change in the threat level means that they will be additional resources and support made available to the police as they work to keep us all safe.[…] This means that armed police officers responsible for duties such as guarding key sites will be replaced by members of the armed forces which will allow the police to significantly increase the number of armed officers on patrol in key locations.feedback
