General Election Statement from the Prime Minister



A brighter future for Britain.

It’s time we had a parliament that works.

MPs spent the last three years arguing about Brexit. And they got nothing done. Brexit is delayed yet again and the country’s priorities have been ignored.

That’s why we called this general election. Because the country deserves a parliament that works.

So on the 12th of December, every single one of us will have a choice. We can vote for five more years of uncertainty and confusion. Or we can vote to get Brexit done – and get on with the country’s priorities.

I know that there’s a brighter future for Britain. A future where Brexit is done and we’re focusing on the issues that matter to you and your family. A future with better hospitals, safer streets, world-class schools and a strong economy.

That’s the brighter future I’m asking you to vote for. With your support, we’ll pass our new Brexit deal and get Brexit done. We’ll invest £33.9 billion extra in the NHS. Hire 20,000 new police officers. Get more money to every single school in the country. And continue to grow our economy.

We can’t afford another hung parliament – with Jeremy Corbyn in charge of nothing except more arguments.

So let’s get Brexit done. Let’s get on with the country’s priorities. And let’s put Britain back on the road to a brighter future.
