Last quote by Theresa May on British elections 2017

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

All quotes by Theresa May on British elections 2017

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

The country is coming together but Westminster is not… if we do not hold an election now (opposition politicians') political game playing will continue.feedback

As our Prime Minister Theresa May has said, the country is coming together, but Westminster is not.feedback

Britain is leaving the European Union and there can be no turning back. And as we look to the future, the Government has the right plan for negotiating our new relationship with Europe. At this moment of enormous national significance there should be unity here in Westminster, but instead there is division.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

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

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

We won't be doing TV debates. I believe in campaigns where politicians actually get out and about and meet with voters. 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

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

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. I have only recently and reluctantly come to this conclusion. Since I became Prime Minister I have said that there should be no election until 2020, but now I have concluded that 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 must take.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

Last summer, after the country voted to leave the European Union, Britain needed certainty, stability and strong leadership, and since I became prime minister the government has delivered precisely that. Despite predictions of immediate financial and economic danger, since the referendum we have seen consumer confidence remain high, record numbers of jobs, and economic growth that has exceeded all expectations. We have also delivered on the mandate that we were handed by the referendum result. Britain is leaving the European Union and there can be no turning back.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
