Leadership Election

Who I will be supporting for Leader of the Conservative Party.

Theresa May

I have watched carefully as each of the contenders for the Leadership of the Conservative Party have announced their candidacy and spoken to a great many constituents about their views. 

It is important to remember that, not only will the successful candidate become the Leader of my Party, but also the Prime Minister – it is therefore a hugely important decision for all Members of Parliament – and ultimately – Conservative Party members to take. 

I have decided to support Theresa May, the Home Secretary, in her bid to lead the Country. I believe she has been an outstanding Home Secretary who has worked tirelessly to ensure the UK has remained a safe place to live. She has consistently maintained a mature approach to political life and is widely respected because of it. 

Of course, there is a long way to go before a new Leader is elected, however I wanted to add my opinion to those of my constituents and back Theresa May’s candidacy for Conservative Party Leader and Prime Minister.
