Last quote by Theresa May

This means that their assessment is not only that an attack remains highly likely but that a further attack may be imminent. Armed police officers responsible for duties such as guarding key sites will be replaced by members of the armed forces ... You might also see military personnel deployed at certain events, such as concerts and sports matches.feedback

Most recently, Theresa May was quoted as having said, “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.”.

Theresa May quotes

We will make sure nobody has to sell their family home to pay for care. We will make sure there's an absolute limit on what people need to pay ... so you will always have something to pass on to your family. Nothing has changed, nothing has changed, we are offering a long-term solution for the sustainability of social care for the future.feedback

We think this is the best way [...] to enable more people to stay in their homes.feedback

Nothing has changed from the principles on social care policy that we set out on our manifesto. Just one figure: in 10 years' time, there will be two million more people over the age of 75. Now, our social care system will collapse if we don't do anything about it. I'm not going to bury my head in the sand, I'm not going to play politics with it, which is what Jeremy Corbyn is doing. We have not rewritten the manifesto. The principles on which we have based our social care policy remain absolutely the same.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn wants to duck this reality – and play politics. But there will be 2 million more people over 75 years old in Britain over the next decade alone. Our social care system will collapse unless we make some important decisions now about how we fund it. The UK's seat at the negotiating table will be filled by me or Jeremy Corbyn. The deal we seek will be negotiated by me or Jeremy Corbyn. There will be no time to waste and no time for a new government to find its way. So the stakes in this election are high.feedback

We think this is the best way, having looked at it, to enable more people to stay in their homes, because they won't be worried about the cost of care because they know that will be sorted after they have died. But there will be a sum to pass on to their children.feedback

If I lose just six seats I will lose this election.feedback

I'm backing those that want a more secure and full life. I'm backing those whose only wish is that their children will do better than themselves.feedback

Because if we don't get this right, the consequences for the United Kingdom and for the economic security of ordinary working people will be dire. If we do, the opportunities ahead are great. And to those that look to their government and their politicians for a little help and support, I'm backing you too. Because too often in the past, ordinary working people have found the help and support they need just isn't there. And I know that sense of disenchantment is particularly acute here in Wales.feedback

We saw that when people here in Wrexham and across Wales chose to ignore the hysterical warnings of Labour, Plaid Cymru and Liberal Democrat politicians in Cardiff Bay, and voted to leave the EU. We see it now in the way those same politicians refuse to respect that vote as they try to find new ways to put obstacles in our way. And the cause of that emerging gulf is clear. It is because the Labour Party has taken people in Wales for granted for decades - just as it has in other communities across Britain.feedback

That is why we need someone representing Britain who is 100 per cent committed to the cause.feedback

There are just 17 days to go until this crucial General Election. Just 11 days after that, the European Union wants the Brexit negotiations to begin. The UK's seat at the negotiating table will be filled by me or Jeremy Corbyn. The deal we seek will be negotiated by me or Jeremy Corbyn. There will be no time to waste and no time for a new government to find its way. So the stakes in this election are high. Not someone who is uncertain or unsure, but someone utterly determined to deliver the democratic will of the British people.feedback

There is much debate about what the UK's obligations might be, or indeed what our rights might be in terms of money being paid in the past. We would look at those, both rights and obligations.feedback

No, I'm not. We are the party that believes in low taxation, recognises the importance of the strength of the economy - and that does mean ensuring business is supported.feedback

Look, it's not for me to comment on what is happening in Congress or what is happening in terms of internal American politics.feedback

Obviously the ability to speak English is an important part of that because if you don't speak English well then you will be less likely to be able to participate in general things that other people do, like speaking to your GP and speaking to your children's teachers.feedback

Well, obviously it's a full-on job in terms of the amount of time it takes. It is a job like no other.feedback

Yes, I do pray, but I don't go into details about how often and so forth. I'm a regular practising member of the Church of England.feedback

I've always been a Conservative and what we are doing is in the mainstream of political thinking in this country. Now, I do approach things in a different way - in the sense that my thinking on every job I do is just get in there, do the best I can and get on with it. This was one of the proposals that we had in our Green Paper on greater diversity in schools and the independent sector is already starting to respond positively to that. So I'm sure we're going to be able to work with them.feedback

I think if you are a person of faith, then faith underpins how you approach life.feedback

Yes, we've put that option into the manifesto, but actually I am confident that we will see the independent sector responding.feedback

What we've seen, sadly, is a limited number of instances where the public would feel that someone has been given an honour and then perhaps not met the standards of integrity that they would expect. I think we just need to look at what should be done. We see sportsmen and celebrities who make great contributions to our national life and to the standing of the United Kingdom. We also see people who work really hard in their local community, perhaps on a voluntary basis, making a real difference to people's lives. We want to make sure that contributions are properly recognised.feedback

The issue of public confidence in the public system is something that's been there from some time.feedback

There is much debate about what the UK's obligations might be or indeed what our rights might be in terms of money being paid in in the past. We make it clear that we would look at those both rights and obligations. There's the investment bank, there's the investment fund, there are various areas. This will be, as you know, an important part of the negotiations.feedback

We have devolution in the United Kingdom and, as a government, we have given the Scottish government significant powers in relation to welfare, and they make a number of decisions about various welfare benefits in Scotland. The decision we have made about winter fuel payments is that we will continue to ensure that the least well-off pensioners are supported but there is a principle of fairness.feedback

Any decision that is taken about U.K. action in relation to him (Assange) would be an operational matter for the police.feedback

As Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, I care just as much about the futures of children from Ayrshire and Angus as I do about the futures of children in Kent or Carlisle. Across the United Kingdom, we may be four nations, but at heart we are one people. We all have a stake in each other's success.feedback

Only the Conservative and Unionist Party has the strength and credibility to stand up to the Nationalists and defend our United Kingdom.feedback

There is no 'Mayism'...There is good solid Conservatism, which puts the interests of the country and the interests of ordinary working people at the heart of everything we do. The negotiations will undoubtedly be tough, and there will be give and take on both sides, but we continue to believe that no deal is better than a bad deal for the UK. It is ...a portrait of the kind of country I want (Britain) ...to be after Brexit as we chart our own way in the world.feedback

Join me on this journey. Come with me as I lead Britain. Strengthen my hand as I fight for Britain. Stand with me as I deliver for Britain, and with confidence in ourselves, and a unity of purpose in our country, let us all go forward together.feedback

Rather than pursue an agenda based on a supposed centre ground defined and established by elites in Westminster, we will govern in the interests of the mainstream of the British public. Margaret Thatcher was a Conservative, I am a Conservative, this is a Conservative manifesto. There is good solid Conservatism that puts the interests of the country and the interests of ordinary working people at the heart of everything we do in government.feedback

The more seats we win on June 8 the stronger Scotland's voice will be.feedback

Allows us to reduce and control the number of people who come to Britain, while still allowing us to attract the skilled workers our economy needs.feedback

Margaret Thatcher was a Conservative, I'm a Conservative, this is a Conservative manifesto.feedback

I think it's true to say, that the Chancellor and I, and every other member of our team, are focused on June 8.feedback

We continue to work together and we have confidence in that relationship between us and the United States that it helps to keep us all safer.feedback

Decisions about what President Trump discusses with anybody that he has in the White House is a matter for President Trump. We continue to work with the United States and continue to share intelligence with the United States as we do with others around the world because we are all working together to deal with the threats that we face.feedback

It's true to say the chancellor and I and every other member of my team are focused on 8 June. Yes, very happy to do so. We have worked together over the years, many years, longer than we would care to identify. That's an age-related comment, nothing else, so don't read anything into that.feedback

We must not be complacent and I am not complacent. I will not take anything for granted and neither will the team I lead, because there is too much at stake.feedback

So as well as extra money going into the NHS we need to make sure we are spending is being spent as effectively as possible with an absolute focus on patient care. I didn't actually see any of them but I'm told it was in the realms of claims that weren't accurate. So it is a concern. But social media does bring huge benefits as well. I have never been fox hunting. If I am elected I will certainly serve my full term. I am pretty certain it (Brexit) can be done in those two years. A new parliament will take us through to 2022 which is three years beyond the 2019 and I will be round.feedback

I inject five times a day, . I am a type one diabetic. That means when I eat, I have to inject insulin, which I do. I will be injecting myself four or five times a day... You just get into a routine. You depend on that insulin and you just build that routine into your daily life. The crucial thing to me is being a diabetic doesn't stop you from doing anything. Overall in the five years from 2015 to 2020 we are spending half a trillion pounds on the NHS.feedback

During the Conservative Party leadership campaign, we started to see some pretty nasty videos being sent round about me.feedback

No. It was clear (that) warnings were given to hospital trusts. We take cyber security seriously.feedback

That is what we want to ensure when we look at the help that we are giving to people with any disability it's that particularly we focus on those who are most in need.feedback

We have got a lot of plans for people with mental health…. I would like somebody to help me because I can't do everything that I want to do. Talk about everybody, not just me, I am talking about for everybody who has got mental and everybody who has got learning disabilities. I want them not have their money taken away from them and being crippled. We are going to do a number of….feedback

The fact that different ethnic groups are being paid less for doing the same jobs is an injustice which cannot be allowed in 21st-century Britain. My plan will deliver a fairer deal for all workers, by extending rights and protections, guaranteeing rises in the national living wage and delivering a strong and stable economy.feedback

My plan will deliver a fairer deal for all workers, by extending rights and protections.feedback

What I can do is ensure that we are giving more help to people with mental health problems and learning disabilities and that is exactly what we are doing and we made an announcement the other day.feedback

No. It was clear warnings were given to hospital trusts but this is not something that focused on attacking the NHS here on the UK. Europol say there are 200,000 victims across the world. Cybersecurity is an issue that we need to address. That's why the government, when we came into government in 2010, put money into cybersecurity. It's why we are putting £2bn into cybersecurity over the coming years and, of course, created the National Cyber Security Centre. We take cybersecurity seriously.feedback

There is only one leader at this election who will put rights and opportunities for ordinary working families first.feedback

Whether you rent or buy, everyone needs the security of a place to call home but too many ordinary working families are stuck on council waiting lists, facing unaffordable rents and struggling to save for that first deposit. That's why we will fix the broken housing market and support local authorities and housing associations to build a new generation of council homes right across the country.feedback

The national Cyber Security Centre is working with all organisations here in the UK that have been affected and that's very important. And going forward we will ensure that the National Cyber Security Centre is able to continue to advise and support, as they are doing for this particular attack that has taken place.feedback

We have got to make sure we do resolve the issue of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. I'm very clear that we want to see no return to the borders of the past, no hard border, but I'm clear that we need to see as seamless and frictionless a border as possible. There's goodwill on all sides.feedback

On the tactical side of it, because everybody is expecting a landslide, if we were able to show through our campaign that we got people to tactically vote and it brought the landslide down to a 20-30 majority, we would have done an incredible job. Lots of people say there's no point. I understand that, but I've got to do something.feedback

It's an international attack and a number of countries and organizations have been affected.feedback

We will make it clear that we cannot continue to duck these important challenges and we will be straight with people about the trade-offs we must sometimes make.feedback

The internet has brought a wealth of opportunity but also significant new risks which have evolved faster than society's response to them. We want social media companies to do more to help redress the balance and will take action to make sure they do.feedback

We do face a challenge of an ageing population and how we can ensure that we provide for that ageing population. I think there are short-term, medium-term and long-term solutions. (There is) a long-term issue about the sustainability of social care, for the long-term.feedback

My commitment to them is this: if you put your trust in me, back me, I will strive to be a leader worthy of our great country.feedback

So far during this campaign, we have learned one thing about Jeremy Corbyn: proud and patriotic working class people in towns and cities across Britain have not deserted the Labour Party – Jeremy Corbyn has deserted them. Across the country today, traditional Labour supporters are increasingly looking at what Jeremy Corbyn believes in and are appalled. That is why at this election, I am determined to offer every community a positive alternative to Jeremy Corbyn's nonsensical and incompetent Labour Party.feedback

It is impossible to answer the question about how I would have been had I done. It has been very sad it just turned out not to be possible for us. Of course we are not the only couple who finds themselves in that situation and when you do I suppose you just get on with life and you know we have got nephews and nieces. They do apply themselves to that extent. They are just very well organised and that is the key thing.feedback

We are a party that believes in actually trying to ensure we have low taxes ... we have no plans to increase the level of tax but what I'm saying is that's because we are party that believes in a low tax ... as a government, we would go into government with no plans to raise the level of tax. Of course, we are not the only couple that finds ourselves in that situation and when you do I suppose you just get on with life.feedback

Every single vote for me and Conservative candidates will be a vote that strengthens my hand in the negotiations for Brexit.feedback

We have always taken the view that we can help more Syrian refugees by putting aid into the region.feedback

That is why, if elected on June 8, I will ensure that the UK continues to spend at least 2 per cent of GDP on defence and that the budget rises every year. Under my leadership the Conservatives will ensure that the brave men and women of our Armed Forces have the equipment and resources they need to keep our country safe – and that we meet our obligations to the world. But a strong military is only possible with a strong economy, and Jeremy Corbyn would put both at risk if he makes it to Downing Street propped up by the Lib Dems and SNP in a coalition of chaos.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn would put both at risk if he makes it to Downing Street propped up by the Lib Dems and SNP in a coalition of chaos. Only a vote for me and my Conservative team will deliver the strong and stable leadership that is vital for our national security.feedback

Tuition fees will remain but the question you have to ask the Labour party is how do they actually pay for all of this they are proposing. I've talked about my personal story [in further education] because many politicians have talked about parity of esteem, but they've not touched FE. Because they've not felt the transformative effect that FE has.feedback

When I was a mum at 16, I was made to feel that that's it. There was nothing left for me. I'd failed at secondary school and there was no option for me to go back and to be good at anything. Whereas FE gave me the opportunity to get a vocational qualification in care and get back into the workforce.feedback

I don't think any Government can ever promise that no bill is going to go up year on year.feedback

Sometimes people say to me that doing something like that doesn't sound very Conservative. My response to that is when it comes to looking at supporting working people what matters is not an ideology, what matters is doing what you believe to be right and I think something like that could make a real difference to people and a real difference to people's lives.feedback

What matters is doing what you believe to be right. I believe that we should be doing something to curb rip off energy bills and I suspect there are many people here who get fed up with the way that energy prices keep on rising and yet the energy companies seem to make more and more profits.feedback

Like millions of working families, I am fed up with rip-off energy prices.feedback

It is clearly unsatisfactory that families should have to go to court to quash an IPCC report in order to secure a second investigation into the death of a loved one.feedback

He's been elected, as I say, with a very strong mandate. As for Le Touquet agreement, actually it works for the benefit of both the UK and France. And obviously the government elected after the 8th June will be sitting down and talking to Monsieur Macron and others about how that system we have works for the benefit of France as well as the benefit of the UK. I think it is important that we continue, and we will continue, to say that we do want to bring net migration down to sustainable levels.feedback

We believe that is the tens of thousands, and of course once we leave the European Union we will have the opportunity to ensure that we have control of our borders here in the UK, because we'll be able to establish our rules for people coming from the European Union into the UK.feedback

Now yesterday a new French president was elected. He was elected with a strong mandate which he can take into as a strong position in the negotiations. The UK, we need to ensure we've got an equally strong mandate and an equally strong negotiating position.feedback

We must make sure that we point out the nonsensical policies that Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party are putting forward. They simply don't add up. Because they would wreck the economy and render all their policies totally undeliverable.feedback

Macron "was elected with a strong mandate, which he can take with him as a strong position in the (Brexit) negotiations.feedback

And the alternative is to risk making Jeremy Corbyn prime minister, and try to picture him sitting at that negotiating table with the collective might of the European commission and 27 other European countries against him. A vote for any other party is a vote to be a step closer to Jeremy Corbyn sitting at that Brexit negotiating table – we must not let that happen.feedback

Nobody in this house doubts the importance of the issue of air quality. We have taken action, there is more to do and we will do it.feedback

Pulling out of the European Union is not the silver bullet that suddenly solves all our immigration issues.feedback

On my first day in Downing Street last July, I described shortfalls in mental health services as one of the burning injustices in our country. It is abundantly clear to me that the discriminatory use of a law passed more than three decades ago is a key part of the reason for this. So today I am pledging to rip up the 1983 Act and introduce in its place a new law which finally confronts the discrimination and unnecessary detention that takes place too often.feedback

Britain's negotiating position in Europe has been misrepresented in the continental press. The European Commission's negotiating stance has hardened. Threats against Britain have been issued by European politicians and officials. All of these acts have been deliberately timed to affect the result of the general election that will take place on 8 June.feedback

These negotiations are going to be tough at times. That means they need strong and stable leadership here in the UK sitting around that negotiating table. People must remember this: There will be 27 other European countries on one side of the table and only one person there to stand up for the UK. The question at the general election is who will give that strong and stable leadership: me or Jeremy Corbyn?feedback

So today I am pledging to rip up the 1983 act and introduce in its place a new law which finally confronts the discrimination and unnecessary detention that takes place too often. We are going to roll out mental health support to every school in the country, ensure that mental health is taken far more seriously in the workplace, and raise standards of care.feedback

On my first day in Downing Street last July, I described shortfalls in mental health services as one of the burning injustices in our country. It is abundantly clear to me that the discriminatory use of a law passed more than three decades ago is a key part of the reason for this.feedback

I don't take anything for granted and if you look what happened in the last couple of years, we saw the opinion polls got in wrong in the 2015 general election and last year in the referendum and of course Jeremy Corbyn has pointed out he was a 200/1 chance for the Labour leadership. The general election will be won on the day by real people going out and casting real votes. I want to earn the support of the people to strengthen my hand.feedback

I agree that we want an honours system that actually ensures we can recognise when people out there are really contributing to our society and to their communities.feedback

Britain's negotiating position in Europe has been misrepresented in the continental press, the European Commission's negotiating stance has hardened, threats against Britain have been issued by European politicians and officials. All of these acts have been deliberately timed to affect the result of the general election. The events of the last few days have shown that, whatever our wishes, and however reasonable the positions of Europe's other leaders - there are some in Brussels who do not want these talks to succeed. Who do not want Britain to prosper.feedback

There are some in Brussels who do not want these talks to succeed, who do not want Britain to prosper.feedback

The choice you face now is all about the future. Whoever wins on the 8 June will face one, overriding task: to get the best possible deal for this United Kingdom from Brexit. If we don't get the negotiation right, your economic security and prosperity will be put at risk and the opportunities you seek for your families will simply not happen. If we do not stand up and get this negotiation right we risk the secure and well-paid jobs we want for our children and our children's children too.feedback

If we don't get the negotiation right, if we let the bureaucrats of Brussels run over us, we will lose the chance to build a fairer society with real opportunity for all.feedback

During the Conservative Party leadership campaign I was described by one of my colleagues as a 'bloody difficult woman'. And I said at the time the next person to find that out will be Jean-Claude Juncker.feedback

The opposition parties are lining up to prop up (Labour leader) Jeremy Corbyn and disrupt our Brexit negotiations – a recipe for years of drift and division at this crucial time.feedback

We need that strong and stable leadership more than ever before. The negotiations ahead will be tough. Across the table from us sit 27 European member states who are united in their determination to do a deal that works for them. We need that same unity of purpose here at home to ensure we can get a deal that works in Britain's national interest too. Every vote for me and my local team in this election will be a vote to demonstrate that unity of purpose, to strengthen my negotiating position, and to help me secure the best possible deal.feedback

I am determined not to allow parties like the Liberal Democrats to prosper, because it is in their interests to prop up a Corbyn coalition of chaos so that the Brexit process stalls and they can reopen the battles of the past.feedback

Because this is, I think, the most important election that this country has faced in my lifetime, that when people look at this election and when they hear what the politicians are saying, they think about the national interest. And it's important when we go into those negotiations, and we've already seen some of the comments that have been coming out of Brussels, which show that at times these negations are going to be tough.feedback

Right now we should be working together not pulling apart. And that's, that's why I say, every vote for me and my team in this election will be a vote for strengthening our hand in the Brexit negotiations.feedback

I don't want to make specific pledges on taxes unless I'm sure I can deliver on those.feedback

Today I am setting out our plans, if elected, to ensure the pensions of ordinary working people are protected against the actions of unscrupulous company bosses. Safeguarding pensions to ensure dignity in retirement is about security for families.feedback

First of all I would point out we don't have a Brexit deal on the table from Brussels. We have their negotiating guidelines, we have our negotiating guidelines through the Article 50 letter and the Lancaster House speech I gave on this issue in January. What matters sitting around that table is a strong Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, with a strong mandate from the people of the United Kingdom which will strengthen our negotiating hand to ensure we get that possible deal.feedback

At this election, people will have a clear choice between five years of strong and stable leadership with me and my team or a coalition of chaos led by Jeremy Corbyn. That's what's on offer of course, if you look at the other parties, they're lining up to prop up Jeremy Corbyn. We see it from the Liberal Democrats and we see it from Nicola Sturgeon's Scottish Nationalists.feedback

My message to the people of Scotland is clear: every vote for me and my team will strengthen my hand in the Brexit negotiations. That will strengthen the union, strengthen the economy, and the UK and Scotland together will flourish because if Scotland is flourishing the rest of the United Kingdom is flourishing too.feedback

I know this city is one of the places that people call a traditional Labour area. But here – and in every constituency across the country – it may say Labour on the ballot, but it's Jeremy Corbyn that gets the vote.feedback

I think the real issue is blank cheque. It's what mandate does she claim, on Brexit and on the health service and all the other things. I think the most powerful argument for Labour in this election because of the way the polls are, and the way the opinion polls are and the leadership issue, the most powerful argument for Labour is to say it's important for our democracy that the government is held to account and needs a strong opposition.feedback

Boris is doing a great job and Boris and I and every Conservative candidate will be out there across the country fighting to win this election for the future of our country.feedback

We can see how tough those negotiations are going to be at times. We need the strongest possible hand, the strongest possible mandate and the strongest possible leadership as we go into those talks.feedback

Every vote cast for me through my local Conservative candidates in cities like Leeds, and in towns and cities across the UK, will strengthen my hand when I negotiate with the prime ministers, presidents and chancellors of Europe in the months ahead.feedback

I am clear that under a Conservative government pensioner incomes would continue to increase.feedback

Keeping our country safe is the first duty of a prime minister.feedback

We know that our readers are interested in politics, we know they're interested in women, we know they're interested in the world, so of course, she was a natural fit for us.feedback

The vote for any other party would be a vote for a weak and failing Jeremy Corbyn, propped up by a coalition of chaos which would risk our national future.feedback

We want to get votes and support here in Wales because that would strengthen my hand in the Brexit negotiations.feedback

Remember the opinion polls were wrong in the 2015 general election, they were wrong in the referendum, and Jeremy Corbyn himself has said that he was a 200-1 outsider for the Labour leadership in 2015 and look where that got him. We have been working on a long-term solution, we need to stop ducking the issue.feedback

Every vote that is cast for me and the Conservatives will strengthen my hand in the negotiations with the presidents, prime ministers and chancellors of Europe. We've already seen the other parties lining up to prop up Corbyn, we've seen it from the Liberal Democrats, we've seen it from Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP. Brexit isn't just a process, it's an opportunity … to make sure this really is a country that works for everyone and not just the privileged few. But to do that we do need the certainty that this election will bring over the next five years.feedback

When the tuition fees came in, a lot of people said that what they thought might happen was actually young people from less advantaged families might be less likely to go to university. In fact, that's not the case - the reverse has happened. So I think we have seen [people] crucially still being able to to take those university opportunities.feedback

The election campaign has only just begun. I'm not taking anything for granted. The result is not certain.feedback

I'm asking people to put their trust in me as prime minister so I can get the best possible deal for Britain, but I'm only the prime minister because I'm a member of parliament because the people of Maidenhead have put their trust in me and that's something I don't forget. I wanted to be here back in the constituency that has shaped me and guided me over the years to explain why this election matters so much.feedback

I am … clear that no deal for Britain is better than a bad deal for Britain.feedback

What we need to do though is to look at how that money is spent and make sure that we are able to spend that money in the most effective way. I'm very proud of the record that we have of the children around the world who are being educated as a result of what the British government, the British taxpayer is doing in terms of its international aid.feedback

Now it is not the time for second Scottish independence referendum because it will weaken our hand in negotiations on Brexit. Strength and unity with the Conservatives, division and weakness with the Scottish nationalists.feedback

Had the election been in 2020, we would have been coming up to the most crucial part of the negotiations at the end of the negotiations in what would be starting to be the run-up to a general election.feedback

That would be in nobody's interest. Brexit isn't just about the letter that says we want to leave. It's about ... getting the right deal from Europe. We won't be doing television debates.feedback

Every vote for the Conservatives will make it harder for those who want to stop me from getting the job done. Every vote for the Conservatives will make me stronger when I negotiate for Britain with the European Union.feedback

People will have a real choice at this election. They will have a choice between a Conservative government that has shown we can build a stronger economy and a Labour party whose economic policy would bankrupt this country.feedback

If the Parliamentary arithmetic lends itself to the SNP being part of a progressive alliance to keep the Tories out of Government then the SNP will seek to be part of that as we said in 2015. Now we are not sure that there are many people who think Labour will be in a position on their own or with anyone else to form a Government. There will be many people across England who will see that as a matter for regret. My job first and foremost is to stand up for Scotland. Only the SNP will stand between Scotland and an increasingly hardline and right wing Tory Government.feedback

I genuinely came to this decision reluctantly, having looked at the circumstances, and having looked ahead at the process of negotiation.feedback

I have concluded the only way to guarantee certainty and stability for the years ahead is to hold this election and seek your support for the decisions I have to make.feedback

I believe in campaigns in which politicians actually go out and meet the voters.feedback

There are three things that a country needs: a strong economy, strong defence and strong, stable leadership. That's what our plans for Brexit and our plans for a stronger Britain will deliver. Whereas the right honourable gentleman opposite would bankrupt our economy, weaken our defences and is simply not fit to lead.feedback

That's what I have always believed in, it's what I still believe and I still do it - as prime minister, as a constituency MP, I still go out and knock on doors in my constituency. That's what I believe in doing, that's what I'm going to be doing around this campaign.feedback

At this moment of enormous national significance there should be unity here in Westminster, but instead there is division. The country is coming together, but Westminster is not.feedback

The country is coming together, but Westminster is not. Division in Westminster will risk our ability to make a success of Brexit. That means we will regain control of our own money, our own laws and our own borders and we will be free to strike trade deals with old friends and new partners all around the world. This is the right approach, and it is in the national interest. But the other political parties oppose it.feedback

We want a deep and special partnership between a strong and successful European Union and a United Kingdom that is free to chart its own way in the world.feedback

We need a general election and we need one now. Division in Westminster will risk our ability to make a success of Brexit and it will cause damaging uncertainty and instability to the country. Our opponents believe that because the government's majority is so small, our resolve will weaken and that they can force us to change course. They are wrong. They underestimate our determination to get the job done and I am not prepared to let them endanger the security of millions of working people across the country.feedback

The country is coming together but Westminster is not.feedback

At this moment of national significance, there should be unity here in Westminster, but instead there is division. The country is coming together. But Westminster is not.feedback

Of course, the referendum laid bare some further divisions in our country – between those who are prospering, and those who are not … those for whom our country works well, and those for whom it does not. As the fantastic MP Jo Cox, who was so tragically taken from us last year, put it: 'We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.feedback

The atrocious violence that is being shown against civilians in Syria is at the hands of the Assad regime, and no one should forget that.feedback

I am a practising member of the Church of England and so forth – that lies behind what I do. We must continue to ensure that people feel able to speak about their faith, and that absolutely includes their faith in Christ.feedback

This year, after a period of intense debate over the right future for our country, there is a sense that people are coming together and uniting behind the opportunities that lie ahead. For at heart, this country is one great union of people and nations with a proud history and a bright future. And as we face the opportunities ahead – the opportunities that stem from our decision to leave the EU, and embrace the world – our shared interests, our shared ambitions and, above all, our shared values can and must bring us together. Our Christian heritage is something we can all be proud of.feedback

I'm not just a vicar's daughter, I'm a member of the National Trust as well.feedback

Easter is a moment to reflect, and an important time for Christians and others to gather together with families and friends.feedback

We believe it is highly likely that the attack was carried out by the Assad regime. Apart from anything else, we believe it's only the regime that has the capability to make such an attack.feedback

Boris Johnson did an excellent job in bringing together the G7, bringing together international opinion and enabling [US secretary of state] Rex Tillerson from the United States to go to Moscow with a very clear message – a consensus from the international community. Russia is on the wrong side of this argument but we are willing to work with Russia to bring an end to the conflict in Syria, to bring about a political solution in Syria, but that political solution has to be without Assad.feedback

That was the clear message the foreign secretary took to the G7 and the G7 gave to secretary Tillerson.feedback

We will continue to keep the UK's drug laws under review and look at new ways to reduce the demand for drugs, restrict supply and support individuals to recover from dependence.feedback

Walking in Wales is an opportunity to get out and about and see scenery and clear your mind and your thinking. We stay in a hotel and try to walk every day. Walking is about relaxing, getting exercise and fresh air.feedback

If you're a keen walker, Switzerland is a wonderful summer destination: the views are spectacular, the air is clear and you can get some peace and quiet.feedback

Asylum seekers are housed where there is appropriate accommodation available, and where councils have agreed, and the aim is to ensure there is a reasonable spread across the UK. What I would add to that is that we are working to encourage more local authorities to participate in accommodating asylum seekers and ensure that the duty is shared across the UK.feedback

I prefer not to use the term of divorce from the European Union because very often when people get divorced they don't have a very good relationship afterwards.feedback

Or the chaos and disarray of the rest – political parties motivated not by what is best for local areas, but what best for their own partisan political interest, and without a plan for our country or our local communities – just a recipe for chaos and failure.feedback

On the chemical weapons attack, obviously the OPCW needs to investigate soon and establish clearly all the facts. It is a despicable attack. If it is the case it has been conducted by the Assad regime it shows the barbarism of that regime. What I would say is, all those backing that regime including Russia need to use their influence to stop Assad from bombarding and dealing with his people in such a way.feedback

We will be talking about the start of the negotiations and how we are going to be taking those negotiations forward. I have obviously sent the letter to invoke Article 50, we have said very clearly we want to maintain a deep and special partnership with the EU and I think that has been reciprocated. I'll be talking with President Tusk about how we can ensure, within the timescale we have got, that we can deliver a deal that is going to work for the people of the United Kingdom, but I believe that will also be a deal that will work for the EU as well.feedback

We will be talking about the start of negotiations, how we are going to take these negotiations forward. We have said very clearly we want to maintain a deep and special partnership with the EU and I think that is reciprocated. And I will be talking to President Tusk [about] how we can ensure within the timescale we have got that we can deliver a deal that will work for people in the UK but I believe that will also be a deal that can work for the EU as well.feedback

It's common sense, it's pragmatic for people, it's pragmatic for businesses, and I believe that's what we will be working for and it's what both sides will be working for.feedback

MPs throughout time and continuing now have often had other roles and responsibilities and jobs as well as being an MP. We have doctors, dentists, nurses; we have reservists, special constables in the House of Commons. That brings a breadth of experience into the House of Commons. I think generally a breadth of experience in the House of Commons is a good thing.feedback

We want to create a fairer society by cracking down on unscrupulous practices which target the most vulnerable. This new, targeted scheme is the latest step in the government's fight against nuisance calls, protecting those who are most at risk, including those with dementia. We have seen people tricked out of thousands of pounds by scam callers and this government is determined to clamp down on their activities once and for all.feedback

I'm very conscious of the fact that past governments have encouraged people to buy diesel cars and we need to take that into account when we're looking at what we do in the future.feedback

I'm very clear there can be no future for Assad in a stable Syria, which is representative of all the Syrian people and I call on all the third parties involved to ensure that we have a transition away from Assad. We cannot allow this suffering to continue.feedback

We have no difficulty in raising hard issues with those that we meet with, be it in Saudi Arabia or elsewhere around the world. The strong British tradition of standing up for human rights is there, the strong British tradition of standing up for British national interest is there. I want to see the United Kingdom as a truly global Britain. A good continuing deep partnership with the European Union, but also trading and working with others around the world.feedback

You've used the phrase transitional phase; I have used the phrase implementation period. If you think about it, once we've got the deal, once we've agreed what the new relationship will be for the future, it will be necessary for there to be a period of time when businesses and governments are adjusting systems and so forth, depending on the nature of the deal, a period of time during which that deal will be implemented.feedback

What do I believe in? I suppose if I could sum it up: in opportunity, freedom, security.feedback

I know I'm not a showy politician. I don't often wear my heart on my sleeve. I just get on with the job in front of me.feedback

Yes, we will be raising the humanitarian issue. We believe it is important that we recognise the threat that there is in terms of people's lives. We will be supporting that through the aid and support that we give.feedback

The May doctrine of foreign policy is that everything we do is in our British national interest. It is in our British national interest to have good relations around the world so we can trade around the world. It's also in our national interest to ensure that we are working with others around the world to maintain our safety and security. And, yes it is in our national interest to ensure that the values that underpin us as Britons are values that we promote around the world and that's what we do.feedback

No, we are not doing that [selling out principles]. What we are doing is continuing the links that we have had for a long time with countries that are important to us.feedback

I hope that people see me as a woman leader, [and] will see what women can achieve and how women can be in significant positions. I've talked to the Saudis on a number of occasions now and I raise issues of this sort. I think we have already seen some changes.feedback

We've been working with their armed forces, helping with training for some time now and we will be enhancing that.feedback

It "was an absolutely abominable attack, completely unacceptable.feedback

It's important for me as a woman leader and as leader of the government of the United Kingdom to maintain the relationships that are important to us as a country, for our security, and our trade for the future.feedback

I think what is crucial - and where we have been working, and will continue to work through the United Nations Security Council, through resolutions which we have supported there, and with the United States - is to encourage China to look at this issue of North Korea and to play a more significant role in terms of North Korea. I think that's where our attention should focus.feedback

I was very clear in my statement in the house of the continuing support we show to Gibraltar.feedback

As the United Kingdom leaves the EU, we are determined to forge a bold, confident future for ourselves in the world. We must look at the challenges that we, and future generations, will face and build stronger partnerships with countries that will be vital to both our security and our prosperity.feedback

Continues to inspire the battle against the injustices of today.feedback

I believe that what we'll be working for and what I believe we can get is a comprehensive free trade agreement. We are looking, we would like to see as friction-less free trade as possible, tariff free across borders so we can continue that trade with the European union.feedback

This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning back.feedback

There may be some particular programmes that we wish to pay to be members of because it is the national interest - and that will drive us. It will be a different relationship, but I think it can have the same benefits in terms of that free access to trade. There are some people in Europe who talk about punishing the UK and I don't want to sign up to an agreement which is based on that.feedback

We're a law-abiding nation. We will meet obligations that we have.feedback

This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning back. We should aim to strike an early agreement about their rights.feedback

The best result to ensure the voice of a devolved administration in Northern Ireland can be heard within these negotiations is for the parties to come together and for us to see that strong and devolved government which will provide us with that interlocutor.feedback

Today the government acts on the democratic will of the people. The United Kingdom is leaving the European Union.feedback

What we are going to do is be ambitious in our negotiation.feedback

Now is the time for us to come together and be united across this house and across this country to ensure that we work for the best possible deal for the United Kingdom and the best possible future for us all.feedback

Today the government acts on the democratic will of the British people.feedback

This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning back. Today the government acts on the democratic will of the British people.feedback

More than ever, the world needs the liberal democratic values of Britain. My constituency voted remain.feedback

My plan for Britain is not just a plan to leave the EU but a plan to build a stronger economy and a fairer society, underpinned by genuine economic and social reform. To make Britain a country that works for everyone, not just a privileged few.feedback

When I sit around the negotiating table in the months ahead, I will represent every person in the whole United Kingdom – young and old, rich and poor, city, town, country and all the villages and hamlets in between. And, yes, those EU nationals who have made this country their home. It is my fierce determination to get the right deal for every single person in this country.feedback

We are one great union of people and nations with a proud history and a bright future. And, now that the decision has been made to leave the EU, it is time to come together.feedback

We seek a new and equal partnership – between an independent, self-governing, global Britain and our friends and allies in the E.U. Not partial membership of the E.U., associate membership of the E.U., or anything that leaves us half in, half out.feedback

The Government is clear in its aims: a deal that works for every nation and region of the UK and indeed for all of Europe – a new, positive partnership between the UK and our friends and allies in the European Union.feedback

June 23 was not the moment Britain chose to step back from the world. It was the moment we chose to build a truly Global Britain.feedback

We need to find a solution that addresses the concerns of the British people about free movement while getting the best possible deal on trade in goods and services.feedback

We must leave the European Union – and forge a new role for ourselves in the world.feedback

Now is the time when we should be pulling together, not hanging apart.feedback

We stand on the threshold of a significant moment for Britain as we begin the negotiations that will lead us toward a new partnership with Europe. We are going to take this opportunity to forge a more global Britain.feedback

Democracy and the values it entails will always prevail.feedback

A couple live there with their four children, they are a nice family. I saw the man [Masood] from London visiting here. My little sister was in his son's class. His children used to visit next door and he [Masood] used to pick them up sometimes.feedback

An act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy, he took out his rage indiscriminately.feedback

He was not part of the current intelligence picture.feedback

The police heroically did their job. But, as is routine, the police, together with the House authorities, are reviewing the security of the parliamentary estate, coordinated with the Cabinet Office, which has responsibility for the security measures in place around the government secure zone.feedback

His identity is known to the police and MI5 and, when operational considerations allow, he will be publicly identified. What I can confirm is that the man was British-born and that – some years ago – he was once investigated in relation to concerns about violent extremism. He was a peripheral figure. The case is historic – he was not part of the current intelligence picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent or of the plot. Intensive investigations continue.feedback

The case is historical – he was not part of the current intelligence picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent – or of the plot.feedback

In addition to twelve Britons admitted to hospital, we know that the victims include three French children, two Romanians, four South Koreans, one German, one Pole, one Irish, one Chinese, one Italian, one American and two Greeks.feedback

It is believed that this attacker acted alone.feedback

Beyond these walls today – in scenes repeated in towns and cities across the country – millions of people are going about their days and getting on with their lives. The streets are as busy as ever, the offices full, the coffee shops and cafés bustling. As I speak, millions will be boarding trains and aeroplanes to travel to London and to see from themselves the greatest city on earth. It is in these actions, millions of acts of normality, that we find the best response to terrorism.feedback

It is still believed that this attacker acted alone and the police have no reason to believe that are imminent further attacks on the public. He was a peripheral figure. The case is historic. He was not part of the current intelligence picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent or of the plot.feedback

We are not afraid. Yesterday an act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy, but today we meet as normal.feedback

It is Islamist terrorism. It is a perversion of a great faith.feedback

But we will remember the best.feedback

In addition to 12 Britons admitted to hospital, we know the victims include three French children, two Romanians, four South Koreans, one German, one Pole, one Irish, one Chinese, one Italian, one American and two Greeks.feedback

We will never allow evil to drive us apart.feedback

Tomorrow morning parliament will meet as normal. We will come together as normal, and Londoners and others from around the world who have come here to visit this great city will get up and go about their day as normal. They will board their trains, they will leave their hotels, they will walk these streets. They will live their lives and we will all move forward together, never giving in to terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.feedback

The location of this attack was no accident. The terrorist chose to strike at the heart of our capital city, where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech. These streets of Westminster, home to the world's oldest parliament, are ingrained with a spirit of freedom that echoes in some of the furthest corners of the globe.feedback

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been affected, to the victims themselves and their family and friends – who waved their loved ones off but will not now be welcoming them home. For those of us who were in Parliament at the time of this attack, these events provide a particular reminder of the exceptional bravery of our police and security services who risk their lives to keep us safe. Once again today, these exceptional men and women ran toward the danger even as they encouraged others to move the other way.feedback

McGuinness "understood both its fragility and its precious significance and played a vital part in helping to find a way through many difficult moments.feedback

We don't comment on private conversations that take place. All I would say is, I've been very clear: I'm not afraid to raise issues. And the nature of the relationship is such that we should be able to be frank and open with each other.feedback

While we certainly didn't always see eye-to-eye even in later years, as deputy First Minister for nearly a decade he was one of the pioneers of implementing cross community power sharing in Northern Ireland. He understood both its fragility and its precious significance and played a vital part in helping to find a way through many difficult moments. At the heart of it all was his profound optimism for the future of Northern Ireland – and I believe we should all hold fast to that optimism today.feedback

First and foremost, my thoughts are with the family of Martin McGuinness at this sad time. While I can never condone the path he took in the earlier part of his life, Martin McGuinness ultimately played a defining role in leading the Republican movement away from violence. In doing so, he made an essential and historic contribution to the extraordinary journey of Northern Ireland from conflict to peace.feedback

I have set out my objectives. Those include getting a good free trade deal, they include putting issues like continuing working together on issues like security at the core of what we are doing. We are going to out there negotiating hard, delivering on what the British people voted for.feedback

People have described it as a lucky suit. I think I'm going to stop wearing it now. I think I'd want to make sure everyone in the world had access to clean water and sufficient food, so we didn't see people starving.feedback

And I also think it's important to be able to show that a woman can do a job like this and still be interested in clothes.feedback

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.feedback

This bill is the biggest power grab since the days of Henry VIII. The Liberal Democrats will not sit there and let the government say all the right things while eroding vital rights and protections that makes Britain what it is. We will, if needed, grind the government's agenda to a standstill, unless proper and rigorous safeguards are given over the Great Repeal Bill. The ball is now in the Prime Minister's court.feedback

To build a stronger economy that works for everyone, Government must also support competitive markets and an open economy. That means recognising where markets are not working for customers, and being ready to step in on their behalf, so that consumers get a fair deal. One market that is manifestly not working for all consumers is the energy market. Energy is not a luxury, it is a necessity of life. But it is clear to me – and to anyone who looks at it – that the market is not working as it should.feedback

So we are looking very closely at how we can address this problem, and ensure a fairer deal for everyone.feedback

Our party did not end the unjust and inefficient monopolies of the old nationalized energy corporations only to replace them with a system that traps the poorest customers on the worst deals.feedback

We have seen that tunnel vision on display again this week. The SNP argue that we should break up the UK because we are leaving the EU. It is muddle on muddle. One market that is manifestly not working for all consumers is the energy market. The vast majority of consumers, especially those with the lowest incomes, are on the most expensive tariffs. Relying on switching alone to keep prices down is clearly not working.feedback

As we leave the European Union, I am determined that we will seize the opportunity to forge a bold new role for a global Britain as the most outward-looking, free-trading nation in the world.feedback

All our energies should be focused on our negotiations with the European Union.feedback

Now is not the time. All our energies should be focused on our negotiations with the European Union.feedback

History may look back on today and see it as the day the fate of the Union was sealed.feedback

The Union is more than just a constitutional artefact. It is a union between all of our citizens, whoever we are and wherever we're from. So our Plan for Britain will put strengthening and sustaining that Union at its heart. The coming negotiations with the EU will be vital for everyone in the United Kingdom. It is essential that we get the right deal, and that all of our efforts and energies as a country and focused on that outcome.feedback

This is just wishful thinking by a group of arch-Eurosceptics who have never got over the fact they cocked up the leadership contest.feedback

I have absolute faith in the chancellor. We made very clear yesterday, he and I, about the tax lock, that we recognised the spirit of the manifesto and the change has been made.feedback

To look at this issue at this time would be unfair because people wouldn't have the necessary information to make such a crucial decision.feedback

We made a commitment not to raise tax and measures we put forward in the Budget last week were consistent with those [tax locks]. As a number of my Parliamentary colleagues have pointed out in recent days the trend towards greater self-employment does create a structural issue within the tax base on which we will have to act. We have to maintain fairness within the tax system.feedback

We will bring forward further proposals but we will not bring forward increases in (national insurance) later in this Parliament. As a number of my parliamentary colleagues have been pointing out in recent days, the trend towards greater self-employment does create a structural issue in the tax base on which we will have to act. We want to ensure we maintain fairness in the tax system.feedback

One of the driving forces behind the union's creation was the remorseless logic that greater economic strength and security come from being united. Politics is not a game, and government is not a platform from which to pursue constitutional obsessions.feedback

It is not right to have a border poll at this stage.feedback

This is not a moment to play politics or create uncertainty and division… It is a moment to bring our country together, to honour the will of the British people and to shape for them a brighter future and a better Britain.feedback

I prefer not to use a term of divorce from the European Union because very often when people get divorced they don't have a very good relationship afterwards.feedback

There is much that binds us and I don't want to see anybody doing constitutional gameplaying with the future of the UK. The most important single market for Scotland is the single market of the United Kingdom.feedback

The tunnel vision that the SNP has shown today is deeply regrettable. It sets Scotland on a course for more uncertainty and division, creating huge uncertainty. Politics is not a game.feedback

Next week I will seek the approval of the Scottish Parliament to agree with the UK government the details of a section 30 order - the procedure that will enable the Scottish Parliament to legislate for an independence referendum.feedback

If Scotland is to have a real choice - when the terms of Brexit are known, but before it is too late to choose our own course - then that choice must be offered between the autumn of next year, 2018, and the spring of 2019.feedback

It will be decided by the people of Scotland. It will be Scotland's choice.feedback

The tunnel vision that the SNP has shown today is deeply regrettable. It sets Scotland on a course for more uncertainty and division, creating huge uncertainty. And this is at a time when the evidence is that the Scottish people, the majority of the Scottish people, do not want a second independence referendum. So, instead of playing politics with the future of our country, the Scottish government should focus on delivering good government and public services for the people of Scotland. Politics is not a game.feedback

Ours is not a marriage of convenience, or a fair-weather friendship, but a true and enduring Union, tested in adversity and found to be true... We are four nations, but at heart we are one people. That solidarity is the essence of our United Kingdom and is the surest safeguard of its future. The devolution of powers across the United Kingdom must not mean we become a looser and weaker Union. We cannot allow our United Kingdom to drift apart. For too long the attitude in Whitehall has been to 'devolve and forget.feedback

What they can say is the parliament will have a say at the end of the negotiations. David Davis and everybody else knows that parliament will find a way to have a vote – isn't it better that the government acknowledges that today, recognises that MPs will have a say at the end of this. But if the prime minister wants a united party behind her, then this is a simple reassurance that can be given by ministers at the despatch box that will have the effect of me and my colleagues supporting the government in this.feedback

Over time we will extend this to the sponsorship or establishment of more than one school, so that in the future we see our universities sponsoring thriving school chains in every town and city in the country.feedback

I'm not setting a quota for the number of schools that are suddenly going to become grammar schools.feedback

The prime minister has made clear along that the UK is seeking the right deal for financial services as Britain leaves the EU and she made that point to the audience.feedback

It's time to get on with leaving the European Union and building the independent, self governing, global Britain the British people have called for. And so, as I have said, we will trigger Article 50 by the end of this month. This will be a defining moment for the UK, as we begin the process of forging a new role for ourselves in the world, as a strong country with control over our borders and over our laws.feedback

I'm interested in all these terms that have been identified. Hard Brexit, soft Brexit, black Brexit, white Brexit, grey Brexit–and actually what we should be looking for is a red, white and blue Brexit.feedback

People will be able to look at the government paper when we produce it showing all our changes and take a judgement in the round. Of course the chancellor and his ministers will be speaking to MPs, business people and others to listen to their concerns. This is a change that leaves lower paid self-employed workers better off.feedback

The process which is article 50 sets out is for the withdrawal but also setting the framework for a future relationship, which actually should take the two years. That is the timetable we're working to and the EU is working to. I am optimistic we can achieve a good and comprehensive trade deal with the EU.feedback

The substance of what he is asking is, has there been a particular deal with Surrey county council that is not available to other councils. And the answer to that is no.feedback

For too many children, a good school place remains out of reach, with their options determined by where they live or how much money their parents have. Over the last six years, we have overseen a revolution in our schools system and we have raised standards and opportunity, but there is much more to do.feedback

We all know that the SNP will never stop twisting the truth and distorting reality in their effort to denigrate our United Kingdom and further their obsession of independence. A tunnel vision nationalism, which focuses only on independence at any cost, sells Scotland short. As I have made clear repeatedly, no decisions currently taken by the Scottish Parliament will be removed from them. I am determined to ensure that as we leave the EU, we do so as one United Kingdom, which prospers outside the EU as one United Kingdom.feedback

Located close by the beaches where they began the liberation of Europe, the Normandy memorial will be a fitting tribute to them and a place where people can gather to reflect on their extraordinary achievements. Its unveiling on the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in 2019 will provide a timely reminder that we should never take our freedom for granted.feedback

India, our Commonwealth partner, is one of the world's largest spirits markets. But within the EU, Scotch whisky faces a tariff of 150 percent for selling to India. And Scotch whisky, the world's preeminent spirit has just a one percent share of the Indian market. I am determined that we should do better than that for our key industries.feedback

The days of Britain making vast contributions to the European Union every year will end.feedback

As we bring powers and control back to the United Kingdom, we must ensure that right powers sit at the right level to ensure our United Kingdom can operate effectively and in the interests of all of its citizens, including people in Scotland. As I have made clear repeatedly, no decisions currently taken by the Scottish parliament will be removed from them. While the SNP propose that decision-making should remain in Brussels, we will use the opportunity of Brexit to ensure that more decisions are devolved back into the hands of the Scottish people.feedback

We must avoid any unintended consequences for the coherence and integrity of a devolved United Kingdom as a result of our leaving the EU. Ours is not a marriage of convenience, or a fair-weather friendship, but a true and enduring union, tested in adversity and found to be true. The essential common standards which underpin the operation of a single market were provided at the European level.feedback

It took time for me to come to some sort of peace with myself about it. It's something I struggled with. I didn't want to be gay – I'm not sure how many people do….feedback

You have to look after that cat and not let Donald Trump anywhere near your pussy.feedback

We have got, I think, a good relationship… I know her media persona is quite reserved, but she's got quite a quiet wit about her. I think she'll be a good prime minister. She takes everything very seriously, and will always do the right thing. To serve through Brexit is going to be a bloody tough shift, and I take my hat off to her that she wanted to take it on. Labour is still fumbling with its flies while the Tories are enjoying their post-coital cigarette. After withdrawing our massive Johnson.feedback

My first visit as Prime Minister was here to Scotland. I wanted to make clear that strengthening and sustaining the bonds that unite us is a personal priority for me. I am confident about the future of our United Kingdom and optimistic about what we can achieve together as a country. I would suggest that macho, beer-swilling, posturing at the golf-club bar isn't going to get us anywhere.feedback

We've been very clear we are not going to take powers from the Scottish parliament. What we do need to look at is are these powers which currently reside in Brussels, how should we deal with those? There will be some areas where we do need to ensure there is a UK framework to make sure that this very important single market of the United Kingdom, which matters so much to Scotland, is working properly. But what we are talking to all of the devolved administrations about is when we bring powers back from Brussels, what should stay at a UK level and what should be further devolved?feedback

This investment is a vote of confidence in our modern industrial strategy and our determination to cement the UK's position as a world leader in high-tech engineering. Dyson's exporting strength and commitment to creating jobs in Britain is a real success story that demonstrates the opportunity that our plan to create a truly global Britain can present.feedback

We thought that was wrong, that was divisive, it is not a policy that the United Kingdom would adopt.feedback

We do expect and intend that that will happen before the European Parliament debates and votes on the final agreement.feedback

She "agreed to continue my efforts to persuade my fellow European leaders to deliver on their commitment to spend 2 percent of GDP on defense, so that the burden is more fairly shared.feedback

Our European partners now want to get on with the negotiations. So do I, and so does this House.feedback

We remain committed to a two-state solution as the best way of brokering stability and peace.feedback

I want to be clear. What I am proposing cannot mean membership of the single market.feedback

, We will not be a member of the single market and we will be seeking a broad new partnership with the EU including a bold and ambitious free trade agreement.feedback

I do not mean that we will seek some form of unlimited transitional status, in which we find ourselves stuck forever in some kind of permanent political purgatory. That would not be good for Britain, but nor do I believe it would be good for the EU. Instead, I want us to have reached an agreement about our future partnership by the time the two-year Article 50 process has concluded.feedback

I have issued that invitation for a state visit for President Trump to the United Kingdom and that invitation stands.feedback

I am proud that the U.K. stood with you on the 15th of July last year in defense of your democracy. And now it is important that Turkey sustains that democracy by maintaining the rule of law and upholding its international human rights obligations – as the government has undertaken to do.feedback

We believe the sanctions should continue.feedback

On defence and security cooperation, we are united in our recognition of NATO as the bulwark of our collective defense, and today we've reaffirmed our unshakable commitment to this alliance. Mr. President, I think you said, you confirmed that you're 100 percent behind NATO.feedback

The days of the UK and US intervening in sovereign countries in an attempt to remake the world in our own image are over. But nor can we afford to stand idly by.feedback

We're joined by our Washington correspondent Stefan Grobe. The prime minister has gone to the US to lay the foundations of a possible future trade deal, but she's also spoken about a new non-interventionist UK-US approach to global conflicts. Yet she's also signalled a tough line against Russia if one is needed. How has that been received by the Trump administration?feedback

The leadership provided by our two countries through the 'special relationship' has done more than win wars and overcome adversity. It made the modern world. It is through our actions over many years, working together to defeat evil or to open up the world, that we have been able to fulfill the promise of those who first spoke of the special nature of the relationship between us. The promise of freedom, liberty and the rights of man.feedback

When it comes to Russia, as so often it is wise to turn to the example of President Reagan who – during his negotiations with his opposite number Mikhail Gorbachev – used to abide by the adage 'trust but verify.' With President Putin, my advice is to 'engage but beware.feedback

America's leadership role in NATO – supported by Britain – must be the central element around which the alliance is built.feedback

It is my honour and privilege to do so at this time as dawn breaks on a new era of American renewal. As so often it is wise to turn to the example of President Reagan who during his negotiations with his opposite number Michail Gorbachev used to abide by the adage 'trust but verify'… with president Putin my advice is to 'engage, but beware.'.feedback

Some of these organizations are in need of reform and renewal to make them relevant to our needs today. But we should be proud of the role our two nations – working in partnership – played in bringing them into being, and in bringing peace and prosperity to billions of people as a result. When it comes to Russia, as so often it is wise to turn to the example of President Reagan who – during his negotiations with his opposite number Mikhail Gorbachev – used to abide by the adage 'trust but verify.' With President Putin, my advice is to 'engage but beware,'.feedback

As we renew the promise of our nations to make them stronger at home, in the words of President Reagan as the 'sleeping giant stirs' – so let us renew the relationship that can lead the world towards the promise of freedom and prosperity marked out in parchment by those ordinary citizens 240 years ago.feedback

I think there is much that we can do in the interim in terms of looking at how we can remove some of the barriers to trade in a number of areas so that we are able to see an advantage for both of us even if we haven't actually been able to sign that legal free trade agreement.feedback

We condemn torture and my view on that won't change – whether I am talking to you or talking to the president.feedback

The UK is leaving the European Union, not Europe.feedback

We will be looking for a UK-U.S. trade deal that improves trade between our two countries. And I can assure … that in doing that we will put UK interests and UK values first.feedback

The Obama administration obviously signed up to the Paris climate change agreement, we have now done that, I would hope that all parties would continue to ensure that that climate change agreement is put into practice.feedback

I set out that bold plan for a global Britain last week and I recognise there is an appetite in this house to see that plan set out in a white paper. I can confirm to the house that our plan will be set out in a white paper.feedback

This is all about driving our economy for the future. This is important anyway, but as we leave the European Union we want to ensure that we are that truly global Britain with an economy that is in the right shape for the future.feedback

I have absolute faith in our Trident missiles. When I made that speech in the House of Commons, what we were talking about was whether or not we should renew our Trident.feedback

When I sit down, I think the biggest statement that will be made about the role of women is the fact that I will be there as a female prime minister, prime minister of the United Kingdom, directly taking to him about the interests that we share.feedback

I've already said that some of the comments that Donald Trump has made in relation to women are unacceptable, some of those he himself has apologized for. When I sit down (with Trump) I think the biggest statement that will be made about the role of women is the fact that I will be there as a female prime minister ... Whenever there is something that I find unacceptable I won't be afraid to say that to Donald Trump.feedback

Where are the successful sectors that we can help to encourage to grow? But also, what are the sectors that we need to look to for the future too?feedback

The forces of liberalism, free trade and globalization that have had, and continue to have, such an overwhelmingly positive impact on our world ... are somehow at risk of being undermined.feedback

We have seen different movements in the pound over the last six months. But what we have also seen through the other economic data ... is the strength of the UK economy.feedback

We are looking specifically at the question of critical national infrastructure and at the question of national security but in this area as in other areas we will be publishing proposals in due course.feedback

What we're doing is setting out very clearly for people what the position will be.feedback

But it must accept that some people they do feel like they have been left behind.feedback

It remains overwhelmingly and compellingly in Britain's national interest that the EU as an organisation should succeed.feedback

I want the U.K. to emerge from this period of change as a truly global Britain – the best friend and neighbor to our European partners, but a country that reaches beyond the borders of Europe, too.feedback

If we are to make the case for free markets, free trade and globalization, as we must, those of us who believe in them must face up to and respond to the concerns people have.feedback

Mainstream political and business leaders have failed to comprehend their legitimate concerns for too long.feedback

The good news is, in security matters which I am standing up for, we will still be with our British friends in NATO.feedback

No deal for Britain is better than a bad deal for Britain.feedback

But I do want us to have a customs agreement with the EU.feedback

I want Britain to be able to negotiate its own trade agreements but I also want tariff free trade with Europe and cross border trade there to be as frictionless as possible. But I want to be clear. What I am proposing cannot mean membership of the single market.feedback

I know there are some voices calling for a punitive deal that punishes Britain and discourages other countries from taking the same path. That would be an act of calamitous self-harm for the countries of Europe and it would not be the act of a friend.feedback

You will still be welcome in this country as we hope our citizens will be welcome in yours.feedback

I want this United Kingdom to emerge from this period of change stronger, fairer, more united and more outward-looking than ever before. I want us to be a secure, prosperous, tolerant country, a magnet for international talent.feedback

We do not seek membership of the single market. Instead, we seek the greatest possible access to it through a new, comprehensive, bold and ambitious free-trade agreement.feedback

We seek a new and equal partnership, between an independent, self-governing, global Britain and our friends and allies in the EU.feedback

We want to buy your goods, sell you ours, trade with you as freely as possible, and work with one another to make sure we are all safer, more secure and more prosperous through continued friendship.feedback

I know there are some voices calling for a punitive deal that punishes Britain and discourages other countries from taking the same path. That would be an act of calamitous self-harm for the countries of Europe. And it would not be the act of a friend.feedback

Brexit must mean control of the number of people who come to Britain from Europe – and that is what we will deliver.feedback

When it comes to parliament, there is one other way I would like to provide certainty. I can confirm today that the government will put the final deal that is agreed between the UK and the EU to a vote in both houses of parliament before it comes into force.feedback

We have 12 objectives that amount to one big goal: a new, positive and constructive partnership between Britain and the European Union.feedback

It is absolutely clear that the individual who produced this dossier has not worked for the UK government for years.feedback

I join (Corbyn) in expressing condolences to the family and friends of little Katie who died so tragically.feedback

What I am talking about is getting the right relationship for the UK with the EU. We mustn't think about this as somehow we are coming out of membership but we want to keep bits of membership.feedback

I think it's wrong to look at this as just a binary issue, as to either you have control of immigration, or you have a good trade deal. I don't see it a as a binary issue. We will, outside the European Union, be able to have control of immigration, and be able to set our rules for people coming to the UK from member states of the European Union. But we also, as part of that Brexit deal, will be working to get the best possible deal in the trading relationship with the European Union.feedback

Ll set out Brexit strategy over coming weeks: British PM May. Over the coming weeks, I'll be setting out more details of my plan for Britain, yes that's about getting the right deal for Brexit, but it is also about economic reform ... It's about getting the right deal internationally but it's also about a fair deal at home.feedback

We do not believe that it is appropriate to attack the composition of the democratically-elected government of an ally.feedback

But as part of the negotiations, we will have to address this question of the practicalities of adjustment to the new relationship once that new relationship has been agreed.feedback

As we are going to invoke Article 50, trigger the negotiations by the end of March next year, it's right that the other leaders prepare for those negotiations as we have been preparing. We will be leaving the EU, we want that to be a smooth and orderly process. It's not just in our interests, it's in the interests of the rest of Europe as well.feedback

It means there will be one definition of anti-Semitism – in essence, language or behavior that displays hatred toward Jews because they are Jews – and anyone guilty of that will be called out on it.feedback

We have been very clear that setting out the terms of our negotiation before we need to do so is the best way of getting the worst possible deal.feedback

This access to labour is essential as it underpins the UK food chain's timely delivery of high-quality, affordable food to consumers.feedback

I've also reiterated my plan to guarantee the rights of Poles and other Europeans currently living in the UK, so long as the rights of British citizens living across the EU are guaranteed. And I hope we can reach an early agreement on this issue, providing certainty for Polish citizens here and British people living in Europe.feedback

We will commit to substantial real term increases in government investment in R+D, investing an extra 2 billion pounds a year by the end of this parliament, to help put post-Brexit Britain at the cutting edge of science and tech.feedback

Now we want to go further and look at how we can make our support even more effective because my aim is not simply for the UK to have the lowest corporate tax rate in the G20 but also a tax system that is profoundly pro-innovation.feedback

When a small minority of businesses and business figures appear to game the system and work to a different set of rules, we have to recognize that the social contract between business and society fails – and the reputation of business as a whole is undermined.feedback

Our work is on track. I want to see this as a smooth process, as an orderly process, working towards a solution that is in the interests of both the United Kingdom, but also in the interests of our European partners too.feedback

Our work is on track, we do stand ready to trigger Article 50 before the end of March, or by the end of March 2017.feedback

The employment figures show the strength of the fundamentals of our economy.feedback

We are not going for an off-the-shelf solution.feedback

My thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have been affected by this terrible incident that has taken place on the tram in Croydon.feedback

We have a visa system for countries outside the European Union which ensures the brightest and the best are able to come to the United Kingdom. We have, I believe, a good system. We will be talking about trade here.feedback

As the UK prepares to leave the EU, I am determined that Britain should become the global champion of free trade, and that means boosting trade with fast-growing economies like Colombia.feedback

What we want to see is the best possible arrangement for trade with and operation within the single European market for business in goods and services here in the United Kingdom.feedback

After decades of delay we are showing that we will take the big decisions when they're the right decisions for Britain.feedback
