General Election: Statement by Leader of the Welsh Conservatives

Responding to news that the Prime Minister has announced that a General Election will be held on June 8, the Leader of the Welsh Conservatives, Andrew RT Davies, said:

“On June 8 we have an opportunity to vote for the strong and stable leadership that both Wales and Britain need to see us through Brexit and beyond.

“It is the right decision for the country.

“Here in Wales, both Labour and the Welsh nationalists have been in denial over Brexit, and have sought to undermine the process at every stage.

“We need certainty and unity, not political games, and every vote for the Prime Minister on June 8 will strengthen Britain’s hand in the negotiations ahead.

“As we move through this period of national change, voters across the UK will face a choice between the leadership of Theresa May or the chaos and incompetence of Jeremy Corbyn.

“We want both Wales and Britain to emerge from this period stronger, fairer and more outward-looking than ever before, and we will stick to our Plan for a Stronger Britain. 

“Only Theresa May has the plan and the proven leadership to deliver the right deal for Britain abroad and a better deal for ordinary, working people here at home.”
