Congratulations to our new Leader - Theresa May

“I congratulate Theresa May MP on becoming Prime Minister today.  She will provide us with the strong leadership we need to negotiate the best deal for Britain as we leave the European Union and to make Britain a country that works not for a privileged few, but for every single one of us.”

“Theresa May started her political life as a local councillor, serving on the London Borough of Merton for eight years – so she knows the vital role that councillors play in building a better Britain. It will be wonderful to have a strong advocate for local government at the highest level of government.”


“I also hope that the new PM will quickly rule out a third Heathrow runway.  As a local MP she knows only too well that Heathrow expansion would be noisy, polluting and damaging to local communities.”
