Every time the British people have been asked for a view on Brexit, their position has been clear. The 2016 referendum result delivered the largest vote in British history to leave the EU, the 2017 general election saw 589 MPs elected to Parliament on promises to deliver Brexit, with these positions only being reinforced by the results of the European Parliament elections last month.
With this in mind I am supporting Boris Johnson to be the next Leader of the Conservative Party and UK Prime Minister, as he will deliver the people’s decision on Brexit without further delay.
I believe we will leave with a deal that is good for the future of the UK as well as our EU partners, and this is what I will continue to support in Parliament.
Of course, there also has to be a focus on policy beyond Britain’s departure from the EU. An important example is Boris Johnson’s pledge that he will ensure all secondary schools in England will spend at least £5,000 per pupil.
In addition, he is speaking to people’s aspiration for our country’s future prosperity, an enhanced environment and British global confidence. This is why I am supporting Boris Johnson to be the next Prime Minister of our nation.
