People were left without belongings, without roofs over their heads, without even basic information about what had happened, what they should do and where they could seek help.

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

I am pleased to have been here today to see the strength of that community coming together, all faiths united in one desire to see extremism and hatred of all sorts driven out of our society.feedback

Jun 17 2017 - British elections 2017

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

It's absolutely horrifying and I've been hearing stories today from people about their experiences. I've also been hearing from the local community about the issues and concerns that they have.

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

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

We have worked with the DUP before.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Syria conflict

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

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

Jun 13 2017 - Labour Party

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

Jun 13 2017 - Labour Party

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

Jun 12 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 12 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 12 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 12 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 11 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 11 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 11 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 11 2017 - Northern Ireland

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

Jun 10 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 10 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 09 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 09 2017 - British elections 2017

At this time, more than anything else, this country needs a period of stability and if the Conservative Party has won the most seats then it would be incumbent on us to ensure that we have that.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Homosexuality

If the UK only improves by this much at each election, we will not see equal representation in parliament until 2062.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Labour Party

He can lead a protest, I'm leading the country.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

Let us make 'Brexit' a success.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 08 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 08 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 08 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 08 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 07 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 07 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 07 2017 - British elections 2017

He has been campaigning, but he has been campaigning in a number of seats. Rather than just being with me, he has actually been out there knocking on doors and working for other candidates. But we also have a vision for a stronger, fairer, more prosperous Britain for everybody, and that is what we will do if in Government. I don't tweet so… I was mentally calculating 140 characters.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - British elections 2017

Your country needs you. Rarely can a candidate for high office have been so singularly ill-equipped for the task.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - British elections 2017

Today it is over to you. Back me if you believe in Britain.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - British elections 2017

We are seeing the terrorist threat changing, we are seeing it evolve and we need to respond to that.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Deportation

And if our human rights laws stop us from doing it, we'll change those laws so we can do it.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - British elections 2017

You know what some people call us: the nasty party.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - British elections 2017

It's time to remember the good that governments can do.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 06 2017 - Terrorism

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

Jun 06 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 06 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 06 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 06 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 06 2017 - London

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

Jun 05 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 05 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 05 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 05 2017 - Northern Ireland

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

Jun 05 2017 - London

Sadiq Khan is doing a good job and it's wrong to say anything else - he's doing a good job.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Terrorism

It is time to say enough is enough.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - London

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

Jun 05 2017 - London

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

Jun 05 2017 - London

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

Jun 05 2017 - Labour Party

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

Jun 05 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 05 2017 - Labour Party

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

Jun 04 2017 - British elections 2017

There is, to be frank, too much tolerance of extremism in our country. We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed. Yet that is precisely what the internet and the big companies that provide internet-based service provide.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Human Rights

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

Jun 04 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 04 2017 - Syria conflict

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

Jun 04 2017 - Syria conflict

So in light of what we are learning about the changing threat, we need to review Britain's counter-terrorism strategy to make sure the police and security services have all the powers they need.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Islam

Violence can never be allowed to disrupt the democratic process, so those campaigns will resume in full tomorrow and the general election will go ahead as planned on Thursday.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Terrorism

Our society should continue to function in accordance with our values but when it comes to taking on extremism and terrorism things need to change.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 03 2017 - London

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

Jun 03 2017 - Labour Party

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

Jun 02 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 02 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 02 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 02 2017 - Immigration

That's what we're working for. We're working to bring immigration down to the tens of thousands.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 02 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 02 2017 - Scottish independence

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

Jun 01 2017 - London

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

Jun 01 2017 - British elections 2017

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

Jun 01 2017 - Brexit

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

Jun 01 2017 - Brexit

This great national moment needs a great national effort in which we pull together with a unity of purpose and - however we voted in the referendum last June - we come together with a determination to make a success of the years ahead.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Brexit

The country is coming together but Westminster is not. The "division in Westminster will risk our ability to make a success of Brexit.feedback

May 31 2017 - Labour Party

I want to make one thing very clear to Jeremy Corbyn and to you: it is that there can never, ever be an excuse for terrorism. There can be no excuse for what happened in Manchester.feedback

May 31 2017 - Brexit

And as we come together behind this great national mission...we will build a more united country as our shared values, interests and aspirations bring us together. This is the prize, the opportunity that is within reach.feedback

May 31 2017 - Labour Party

If I lose just six (seats) then the government loses its majority and we risk Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister.feedback

May 31 2017 - Labour Party

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

May 31 2017 - Labour Party

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

May 31 2017 - Immigration

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

May 31 2017 - Labour Party

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

May 30 2017 - Labour Party

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

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

We are not leaving Europe. We are leaving the European Union.

May 27 2017 - Terrorism

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

May 27 2017 - Labour Party

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

May 27 2017 - British elections 2017

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

May 27 2017 - British elections 2017

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

May 27 2017 - British elections 2017

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

May 27 2017 - Labour Party

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

May 27 2017 - Labour Party

It is a choice between me working constantly to protect the national interest and to protect our security, and Jeremy Corbyn, who frankly isn't up to the job.feedback

May 25 2017 - British elections 2017

I am also going to be pushing the UK's agenda on burden-sharing and we are proud, as the UK, that we meet the target of spending 2% of our GDP on defence and 20% of our defence budget on equipment. And other nations must be prepared to take responsibility and that includes more investment in defence.feedback

May 25 2017 - NATO

We must redouble our resolve to meet the threats to our shared society, whether from terrorism or from Russia.feedback

May 23 2017 - British elections 2017

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

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

May 22 2017 - British elections 2017

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

May 21 2017 - British elections 2017

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

May 21 2017 - Democratic Party

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

May 21 2017 - British elections 2017

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

May 21 2017 - Labour Party

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

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

May 20 2017 - British elections 2017

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

May 15 2017 - Diabetes

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

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.

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

May 10 2017 - British elections 2017

When it comes to the election tomorrow, I think the choices and the questions that people need to ask are exactly the same today as they were right at the beginning of the campaign. The first is a question of who do you trust to actually have the strong and stable leadership that is going to deliver the best deal for Britain in Europe.feedback

May 10 2017 - NATO

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.

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

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

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

May 06 2017 - Labour Party

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

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

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
