Grandparents have a vital role to play in the upbringing of their grandchildren something that in a time of rising life expectancy they are better equipped than ever to fufill.

Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea was the first time since the Second World War that one sovereign nation has forcibly taken territory from another in Europe. Since then, Russia has fomented conflict in the Donbas, repeatedly violated the national airspace of several European countries, and mounted a sustained campaign of cyber espionage and disruption.feedback

Nov 14 2017

I have a very simple message for Russia. We know what you are doing and you will not succeed, because you underestimate the resilience of our democracies, the enduring attraction of free and open societies, and the commitment of Western nations to the alliances that bind us. It is Russia's actions which threaten the international order on which we all depend. Russia can, and I hope one day will, choose this different path. But for as long as Russia does not, we will act together to protect our interests and the international order on which they depend.feedback

Nov 13 2017

It is Russia's actions which threaten the international order on which we all depend.feedback

Attempts "to try to block the democratic wishes of the British people by attempting to slow down or stop our departure from the European Union.feedback

Nov 09 2017

We are leaving the European Union on 29 March 2019. At any stage we can change our minds if we want to, and if we did we know that our partners would actually be very pleased indeed. The Brexiters create the impression that is because of the way article 50 is written that having sent in a letter on 29 March 2017 we must leave automatically on 29 March 2019 at the latest. That is not true. It is misleading to suggest that a decision that we are taking autonomously in this country about the timing of our departure, we are required to take by a provision of EU treaty law.feedback

Nov 08 2017

We need to establish a new culture of respect at the center of our public life. Political parties have not always got this right in the past. But I am determined to get it right for the future.feedback

Nov 06 2017

I've made clear that a strictly time limited implementation period will be crucial to our future success. I know how important it is for business and industry not to face a cliff edge, and to have the time it needs to plan and prepare for the new arrangements.feedback

We want people to pay the tax that is due.feedback

Nov 06 2017

Nov 06 2017

You know your firms only truly succeed when you provide safe, secure and professional environments for your employees. We must stand up for all the victims of abuse, harassment or discrimination wherever it has occurred. Now is the time to act decisively without fear or favour to guarantee a safe and respectful working environment for everyone in the future.feedback

Nov 06 2017

By setting the right frameworks and investing in skills and infrastructure, we can help broaden our economic base, build a more balanced economy and make Britain a true global leader. We cannot and will not try to make a plan for every corner of our economy. We believe in the free market and won't attempt to shield the economy from market forces. We have to make strategic decisions about where the Government can and cannot best support key sectors of the economy.feedback

Nov 06 2017

Such an approach avoids the failed state interventionism of the 1970s.feedback

Nov 06 2017

Sadly, over recent days, we have seen a number of allegations about figures from across the political parties and it's important that those are investigated impartially, and some have rightly been referred to the police. I think if this hasn't happened to you it's difficult to appreciate the impact that being a victim of this sort of behaviour can have. We need to do more to stop these abuses of power and I'm pleased that having convened this meeting of party leaders today we have agreed a way forward.feedback

Nov 06 2017

Of course people can be friends with their colleagues and consensual relationships can develop at work – this isn't about prying into private lives. What we are talking about is the use and abuse of power.feedback

Nov 06 2017

I believe it is so important that Westminster itself, parliament itself, has a proper process for grievance procedures, has a proper process where people can make complaints and bring allegations. I want people working in parliament to have the confidence that they can come forward with those allegations, that they can come forward and report misconduct that has taken place. And I want both sides to have the confidence that those concerns will be properly investigated, will be fairly and properly investigated.feedback

Nov 04 2017

I will take personal charge of the Government's response, and make the British dream a reality by reigniting home ownership in Britain once again.feedback

Nov 03 2017

Gavin, I urgently need a new Defence Secretary to replace Michael Fallon. But there are so many well-qualified candidates. Tobias Ellwood, Penny Mordaunt, Ben Wallace: all Conservative junior ministers with a background in the Forces. I just don't know who to pick.feedback

Nov 01 2017

I am very clear that we will take action against those where there are allegations that we see, and the evidence is there, that there has been misconduct.feedback

Nov 01 2017

It demonstrates Britain's vital role in creating a homeland for the Jewish people. For it is only when you walk through Jerusalem or Tel Aviv that you see a country where people of all religions and sexualities are free and equal in the eyes of the law.feedback

I appreciate the characteristically serious manner in which you have considered your position, and the particular example you wish to set to servicemen and women and others.feedback

Oct 30 2017

Our football players want to recognize and respect those who have given their lives for our safety and security – I think it is absolutely right they should be able to do so.feedback

Oct 29 2017

I believe that we must establish a House-wide mediation service complemented by a contractually binding grievance procedure available for all MPs (lawmakers) irrespective of their party banner. It is vital that staff and the public have confidence in parliament, and resolving this employment irregularity on a cross-party basis can play an important role in this.feedback

Oct 27 2017

I am very sorry that your circumstances have forced you to take this decision, which I fully understand. I am disappointed that we will no longer have the benefit of your wisdom and experience in government, but I know that you will continue to contribute to proceedings in the House of Lords.feedback

Can I say to him, I think this is something that I will ask the appropriate department to look at and to get in touch with him to get further details of his case.feedback

Oct 24 2017 - Brexit

Not only that, it would start from the false premise that there is no pre-existing regulatory relationship between us. And precedent suggests that it could take years to negotiate. We can do so much better than this.feedback

Oct 23 2017 - Brexit

An implementation period is about a period which is adjusting to the future relationship. That's the basis on which I put it forward to the European Union, and that's the basis on which we'll be negotiating an agreement on it.feedback

Oct 23 2017 - Brexit

The point of the implementation period is to put in place the practical changes necessary to move to the future partnership, and in order to have that you need to know what that future partnership is going to be.feedback

Oct 20 2017 - Brexit

What I have made clear to our EU counterparts in relation to financial contribution is what I set out in my Florence speech, which is, that I have said that nobody needs to be concerned for the current budget plan that they would have to either pay more, or receive less, as a result of the UK leaving. We will honour the commitments we have made during our membership.feedback

Oct 20 2017 - Brexit

There is increasingly a sense that we must work together to get to an outcome we can stand behind and defend to our people.feedback

Oct 20 2017 - British elections 2017

I have spoken to Mariano Rajoy this morning, as I did earlier this week, and made clear that the United Kingdom's position is very clear. We believe that people should be abiding by the rule of law and uphold the Spanish constitution.feedback

Oct 19 2017

I couldn't be clearer: EU citizens living lawfully in the U.K. today will be able to stay. But this agreement will not only provide certainty about residence, but also healthcare, pensions and other benefits.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - Brexit

We will also be looking at the concrete progress that's been made in our exit negotiations and setting out ambitious plans for the weeks ahead… I particularly, for example, want to see an urgency in reaching an agreement on citizens' rights.feedback

Oct 19 2017 - British elections 2017

This Council is about taking stock. It's also about looking ahead to how we can tackle the challenges that we all share across Europe. That means of course continuous cooperation, cooperation which must be at the heart of the strong future partnership that we want to build together. Of course we'll be also looking at the concrete progress we made in our exit negotiations and at setting out ambitious plans for the weeks ahead. I particularly for example want to see an urgency in reaching an agreement on citizen rights.feedback

Oct 12 2017 - British elections 2017

Clean growth is not an option, but a duty we owe to the next generation. Success in this mission will improve our quality of life and increase our economic prosperity.feedback

Oct 11 2017 - British elections 2017

I have been clear that our broken energy market has to change – it has to offer fairer prices for millions of loyal customers who have been paying hundreds of pounds too much.feedback

Oct 11 2017 - Brexit

There is no second referendum. The people of the United Kingdom voted and we will be leaving the European Union in March 2019.feedback

Oct 11 2017 - Iran

The [prime minister] reaffirmed the UK's strong commitment to the deal alongside our European partners, saying it was vitally important for regional security.feedback

Oct 11 2017 - British elections 2017

What I did last time around was I looked at everything and came to a judgment and I'd do exactly the same this time around. But we're not having another referendum and that's absolutely crucial.feedback

Oct 11 2017 - Brexit

I voted remain for good reasons at the time, but circumstances move on and I think the important thing now is that I think we should all be focused on delivering Brexit and delivering the best deal.feedback

Oct 11 2017 - Labour Party

Changes have been made, and performance has increased. For example, at the beginning of this year only 55% of people were getting their first payment on time, [now] that is over 80%. Of course there is more for us to do and that's why the Department for Work and Pensions continues to monitor this and continue to ensure the performance increases.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Brexit

I could sit here and I could say I'd still vote Remain or I'd vote Leave, just to give you an answer. I'm being open and honest with you. What I did last time round was I looked at everything and came to a judgment and I'd do exactly the same this time round. But we're not having another referendum. That's absolutely crucial. We are going to deliver on the vote of the British people, we are going to deliver Brexit. 29th March 2019, we come out of the European Union.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - British elections 2017

People who have lived with discrimination don't need a government audit to make them aware of the scale of the challenge. But this audit means that for society as a whole – for government, for our public services – there is nowhere to hide.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Brexit

I voted remain for good reasons at the time, but circumstances move on … You're asking me to say how would I vote in a vote now against a different background, a different international background, a different economic background. I could sit here and I could say 'Oh, I'd still vote remain or I'd vote leave' just to give you an answer to that question. I'm being open and honest with you. What I did last time round was I looked at everything and came to a judgment and I'd do exactly the same this time round.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Brexit

The position is very clear: the British people voted in a referendum to leave the EU.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Brexit

Well I'm going to get a bit technical here. There are certain rights that pertain to somebody that is an EU citizen here in the UK by virtue of being an EU citizen, things like the benefits that they're able to access in relation to their home country and the UK.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Brexit

But my overall message is I want EU citizens to stay here in the UK and I want to be able to guarantee those rights to enable those people to stay. We're not going to be throwing EU citizens who are currently here in the UK out of the UK in the future.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - Brexit

Some of those issues would fall away if there was no deal because there wouldn't be an agreement between us and the EU. So we would have to look at those issues separately in a no-deal scenario.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - British elections 2017

People who have lived with discrimination don't need a government audit to make them aware of the scale of the challenge. But this audit means that for society as a whole – for government, for our public services – there is nowhere to hide. These issues are now out in the open. And the message is very simple: If these disparities cannot be explained, then they must be changed.feedback

Oct 10 2017 - British elections 2017

Overall the findings will be uncomfortable. But it's right that we've identified them, shone a light on them and we need to confront these issues that we have identified.feedback

Oct 09 2017 - Brexit

We don't want to settle for a model enjoyed by other countries. Instead I am proposing a unique and ambitious partnership that reflects our unprecedented position of starting with the same rules.feedback

Oct 09 2017 - British elections 2017

We want to have a smooth and orderly process of withdrawal ... that's why we want that implementation period and we have to negotiate what will operate during that implementation period, and yes that may mean we will start off with the ECJ.feedback

Oct 08 2017 - British elections 2017

If the Prime Minister believes he is the right person to be Foreign Secretary, then she has my full support.feedback

Oct 08 2017 - Brexit

We are working hard to achieve this and are optimistic about our future as a global, free-trading nation.feedback

Oct 06 2017 - British elections 2017

I would go out and speak, knock at doors in search of a second referendum.feedback

Oct 06 2017 - Brexit

The Business Advisory Council is an important part of our preparations for leaving the EU – allowing us to seek the views of experienced business leaders and to share with them the government's vision for a successful Brexit.feedback

Oct 06 2017 - Brexit

What the country needs is calm leadership and that's what I'm providing with the full support of my cabinet.feedback

Oct 06 2017 - British elections 2017

We have said we would work with local authorities on any adaptations and changes they needed to make to ensure the safety of those tower blocks. There's a number of issues that can improve the safety of tower blocks. It is not just one answer.feedback

Oct 05 2017 - Brexit

The eyes of the world are upon us.feedback

Oct 04 2017 - British elections 2017

In those parts of the country where the need is greatest [the government will] allow homes to be built for social rent.feedback

Oct 03 2017 - Brexit

It doesn't undermine what I am doing at all. There is a lot of talk about Boris's job or this job or that job inside the cabinet. Actually, what people are concerned about – they don't want us to be thinking about our jobs, they want us to be thinking about their jobs and their futures.feedback

Oct 03 2017 - British elections 2017

I think that most people would look at this and assume that America will be so shocked by this attack that they would want to take some action.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - British elections 2017

Nothing has changed. Nothing has changed. We are offering a long term solution for the sustainability of social care for the future.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - British elections 2017

Yes we were going to introduce a cap, but the fundamental principle had remained. But the point is Andrew, sometimes you ask me hypothetical questions and I won't answer hypothetical questions.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - Brexit

Government departments are looking to see what changes are needed, what we need to put in place.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - British elections 2017

Is it ever a mistake to give people the opportunity to vote? I don't think so.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - British elections 2017

That's what you might call the end state, where we're going to get to.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - British elections 2017

This is an important change to the benefits system so I think it is important that we do roll it out but we are looking at the specific issues that are being raised by people about that implementation. We need to roll out Universal Credit. What we also need to do is to ensure that we are addressing the specific issues that are being raised by people.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - Brexit

What I have is a cabinet that is united in the mission of the government. Boris is absolutely behind the Florence speech and the line that we have taken.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - British elections 2017

Yes we've got to look at what happened, listen to the election and listen to voters.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - British elections 2017

What I have is a cabinet united in the mission of this government and that is what you will see this week and agreed on the approach we take in Florence. Boris is absolutely behind the Florence speech. You've seen what he is saying.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - British elections 2017

We are pledging to help students with an immediate freeze in maximum fee levels and by increasing the amount graduates can earn before they start paying their fees back.feedback

Oct 01 2017 - British elections 2017

I will fight the next election. I'm not a quitter. I'm in it for the long-term and I believe there is a long-term job to do.feedback

Sep 30 2017 - Brexit

So my determination to act on those concerns, and crucially, to fulfil the promise of my first speech on the steps of Downing Street, is greater than ever.feedback

Sep 30 2017 - Brexit

Yes, we have to get the best Brexit deal – but we must also take action here at home to make this a fairer place to live for ordinary working people. The social contract in our country is that the next generation should always have it better than the last. Conservatives have a plan to make that a reality.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - NATO

With the largest defence budget in Europe, a far-reaching diplomatic network, world-class security, intelligence and law enforcement services, and our position at the heart of NATO, the UK's role in Europe's defence has never been more vital. As we prepare for Brexit, I want to build a bold, new security partnership with the EU. A partnership that reflects our shared history, promotes our common values, and maintains a secure and prosperous Europe.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - British elections 2017

By stepping up Nato's deterrence and defence posture you are showing that we are equipped to respond to any threat that we face. You are showing that we are ready to do so.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - British elections 2017

I think there is a generation out there who feel that they're going to be worse off than their parents. And what we want as Conservatives is that people should be able to see a brighter future for their children.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - British elections 2017

I understand the concerns raised, particularly by young people, during what was a disappointing election for my party. So my determination to act on those concerns, and crucially, to fulfill the promise of my first speech on the steps of Downing Street, is greater than ever.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - British elections 2017

Aung San Suu Kyi and the Burmese government need to make it very clear that the military action should stop.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - Terrorism

The United Kingdom is unconditionally committed to maintaining Europe's security and we will continue to offer aid and assistance to EU member states that are the victims of armed aggression, terrorism and natural or manmade disasters... While we are leaving the European Union, as I have said many times, we are not leaving Europe so the United Kingdom is unconditionally committed to maintaining Europe's security.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - British elections 2017

We need to look at that very carefully, and to make sure we get the connection between what people want to do locally and the central campaign.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - British elections 2017

I think now we see we do have to go back to them. We've got to make that case all over again, because there is a generation who have grown up in a different environment and perhaps haven't seen the problems that can occur when you don't believe in free markets and sound management of the economy.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - British elections 2017

As somebody who was heavily involved in the pre-1997 Conservative government, so much work was done to get that message across, of the importance of free markets, of sound management of the economy, of global trade. And sadly we do see that that message has been lost. I think in a sense we thought those arguments were done and dusted. That everybody understood it. That we didn't have to go back to them.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - British elections 2017

So out there people have to work quite quickly to put their local campaigns together, and you do get slightly more of a central approach.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - Protectionism

On the wider issue, I think there is a real challenge for us globally today because I think that there are aspects of protectionism creeping in around the world.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - British elections 2017

What I would say in relation to Boeing is that of course we have a long term partnership with Boeing in various aspects of government and this is not the sort of behavior we expect form a long term partner and it undermines that partnership.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Northern Ireland

We are very clear about the importance of Bombardier and the importance of those jobs in Northern Ireland and we will be doing everything we can to ensure that we can see those jobs being guaranteed in future.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Northern Ireland

This result underscores what we have been saying for months: the US trade laws were never intended to be used in this manner, and Boeing is seeking to use a skewed process to stifle competition and prevent US airlines and their passengers from benefiting from the C-Series.feedback

Sep 27 2017 - Brexit

This should be a wakeup call to those who view the US as our trading saviour after Brexit. The US slapping huge tariffs on key UK exports is not a good sign of things to come.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - British elections 2017

By being creative in the ways we approach these issues, we can find solutions that work both for the remaining (EU) 27 but also for the UK and maintain that cooperation and partnership between the UK and the EU.feedback

Sep 24 2017 - British elections 2017

Our football players want to recognise and respect those who have given their lives for our safety and security. I think it is absolutely right they should be able to do so. I should say to Fifa, before they start telling us what to do, they jolly well ought to sort their own house out.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - British elections 2017

It's up to leaders to set the tone, a tone of trust. We want to be your strongest friend and partner as the E.U. and the U.K. thrive side by side. We want to work hand-in-hand with the European Union, rather than as part of the European Union.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - British elections 2017

We will do all this as a sovereign nation in which the British people are in control.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - British elections 2017

It has been and remains one of my first goals in this negotiation to ensure that you can carry on living your lives as before. I am clear that the guarantee I am giving on your rights is real. And I doubt anyone with real experience of the U.K. would doubt the independence of our courts or the rigor with which they will uphold people's legal rights.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Article 50

Clearly people, businesses, and public services should only have to plan for one set of changes in the relationship between the U.K. and the EU. The framework for this strictly time-limited period, which can be agreed under Article 50, would be the existing structure of EU rules and regulations.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - Brexit

I do not want our partners to fear that they will need to pay more or receive less over the remainder of the current budget plan as a result of our decision to leave.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - British elections 2017

So during the implementation period, access to one another's markets should continue on current terms, and Britain also should continue to take part in existing security measures.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - British elections 2017

But the fact is that, at that point, neither the UK – nor the EU and its member states – will be in a position to implement smoothly many of the detailed arrangements that will underpin this new relationship we seek.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - British elections 2017

Compared with what exists between Britain and the EU today, it would nevertheless represent such a restriction on our mutual market access that it would benefit neither of our economies.feedback

Sep 20 2017 - French election 2017

The tech companies have made significant progress on this issue, but we need to go further and faster to reduce the time it takes to remove terrorist content online.feedback

Sep 20 2017 - British elections 2017

The UN and its agencies must win our trust by proving to us and the people we represent that they can deliver. That is why we will remain generous in our funding but set aside 30% to be paid only to those parts of the UN that achieve sufficient results.feedback

We need a fundamental shift in the scale and nature of our response - both from industry and governments - if we are to match the evolving nature of terrorists' use of the internet.feedback

Sep 20 2017 - Multilateralism

Throughout its history the UN has suffered from a seemingly unbridgeable gap between the nobility of its purposes and the effectiveness of its delivery. When the need for multilateral action has never been greater, the shortcomings of the UN and its institutions risk undermining the confidence of states as members and donors.feedback

Modern slavery exists in all our societies, it respects neither borders nor jurisdictions, its victims are subject to the most appalling mistreatment and exploitation.feedback

Sep 19 2017 - London

I, of course, accept an apology if that's been given. I must confess I haven't actually read it myself. I don't pay attention to these things. What matters is that I'm getting on with the job and focusing on what the British people want.feedback

Canada and the United Kingdom have a long shared history. My visit to Canada today is not only about recognising our past but also looking ahead to our bright future. We are both countries with ambitions to lead on the world stage and progressive values that underpin those ambitions – values including the importance of free trade, and respect for international law.feedback

Sep 17 2017 - United Nations

I think the point about the special relationship between the U.K. and the U.S. is that when we do disagree we're able to say so and pretty bluntly. For example, on the Paris issue that you talk about, the Paris climate change agreement, I've made very clear I was dismayed when America decided to pull out of that and as I've said to President Trump, I hope that they'll be able to find a way for America to come back into the agreement.feedback

For this period, military personnel will replace police officers on guard duties at certain protected sites.

Earlier this morning parliament took a historic decision to back the will of the British people and vote for a bill which gives certainty and clarity ahead of our withdrawal from the European Union.

Sep 08 2017 - British elections 2017

I get frustrated. People use the term 'robotic' about me. I don't think I'm in the least robotic. I have made brownies for TMS before, once when Geoffrey Boycott was invited. I brought some brownies up. I handed them to Geoffrey but I don't know whether they ever made it into the TMS box. The fact that he just stuck in there and got on with the job, that was the great thing. The whole point was he stuck at it. He had a plan and he got on with it, and more often than not delivered.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Immigration

We continue to believe as a government that it's important to have net migration at sustainable levels – we believe that to be the tens of thousands – because of the impact particularly it has on people at the lower end of the income scale in depressing their wages.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Immigration

There is a reason for wanting to ensure that we can control migration. It is because of the impact that net migration can have on people, on access to services, on infrastructure. But, crucially, it often hits those at the lower end of the income scale hardest.feedback

(It is) the single most important step we can take to prevent a cliff-edge for people and businesses, because it transfers laws and provides legal continuity.feedback

Sep 02 2017 - British elections 2017

Now it is time for parliament to play its part. The repeal bill delivers the result of the referendum by ending the direct role of the EU in UK law, but it is also the single most important step we can take to prevent a cliff edge for people and businesses, because it transfers laws and provides legal continuity.feedback

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 - British elections 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.

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 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 - British elections 2017

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.

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

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.

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 ...
