Last quote by Theresa May on Brexit

What this shows, and what some of the other comments we've seen coming from European leaders shows, is that there are going to be times when these negotiations are going to be tough. I wouldn't have said it if I didn't believe that. What I also believe is that, with the right strong hand in negotiations, we can get a good deal for the UK.feedback

All quotes by Theresa May on Brexit

The "most crucial point. I've taken this decision because I genuinely believe it is in the national interest. If you look at the timetable, 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. I believe in campaigns where politicians actually get out and about and meet the voters. That's what I believe in doing and that's what I'm going to be doing around this campaign.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

We need a general election and we need one now. The country is coming together, but Westminster is not. Division in Westminster will risk our ability to make a success of Brexit and it will cause damaging uncertainty and instability to the country. Every vote for the Conservatives means we can stick to our plan for a stronger Britain and take the right long-term decisions for a more secure future.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

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

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

I have concluded the only way to guarantee certainty and security for years ahead is to hold this election. Division in [Parliament] will risk our ability to make a success of Brexit.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. In recent weeks, Labour have threatened to vote against the final agreement we reach with the EU, the Liberal Democrats have said they want to grind the business of government to a standstill. The SNP say they will vote against the legislation that formally repeals Britain's membership of the EU and unelected members of the House of Lords have vowed to fight us every step of the way.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

The country is coming together, but Westminster is not. In recent weeks Labour has threatened to vote against the deal we reach with the European Union. The Liberal Democrats have said they want to grind the business of government to a standstill. The Scottish National Party say they will vote against the legislation that formally repeals Britain's membership of the European Union. And unelected members of the House of Lords have vowed to fight us every step of the way.feedback

If we do not hold a general election now their political game-playing will continue, and the negotiations with the European Union will reach their most difficult stage in the run-up to the next scheduled election. Division in Westminster will risk our ability to make a success of Brexit and it will cause damaging uncertainty and instability to the country. So we need a General Election and we need one now, because we have at this moment a one-off chance to get this done while the European Union agrees its negotiating position and before the detailed talks begin.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

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

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 government are adjusting to systems and so forth, depending on the nature of the deal, but a period of time when that deal will be implemented. There's obviously a legal situation in terms of how the EU can conduct trade negotiations. I'm clear that by the point at which we leave the EU, it's right that everybody should know what the future arrangements, the future relationship, that future partnership between us and the European Union will be.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

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
