THERESA MAY: Next Thursday, we will be holding European elections. The Conservative Party didn't want to be fighting these. We wanted to be out of the European Union. Indeed, if Parliament had backed our Brexit deal, we could already have left the EU.
But we are a national party, we fight national elections. And next Thursday, I want people to vote conservative, because it's only the conservatives who can deliver Brexit and take this country forward into a brighter future. No one else can get the job done.
Labour, the Lib Dems, and SNP have voted against delivering Brexit again and again. Nigel Farage can't deliver Brexit. Every few years he pops up, he shouts from the sidelines. He doesn't work constructively in the national interest.
So if you want to party that works in the national interest, vote conservative. To vote for a party that can deliver Brexit, vote conservative. To vote for a party that will take this country forward to a brighter future, vote conservative.
