I welcome the news that the Prime Minister has called for a General Election to be held on 8th June, and will be voting with my colleagues in the House of Commons today to take the necessary steps in Parliament to ensure that this can happen.
I have spoken to my local Conservative Association to notify them of my intention to stand again as the Conservative candidate in Great Yarmouth, and I look forward to campaigning hard between now and June. It has been an honour to serve the constituents of Great Yarmouth since my election in 2010, and I look forward to speaking to as many residents’s as possible ahead of polling day to highlight what we have achieved over the last 7 years, and set out what I will be campaigning for if I am re-elected.
This election is necessary to provide the strong leadership the country needs to deliver Brexit, and every vote for the Conservatives will make our position stronger in the upcoming negotiations. The Prime Minister has set out her Plan for a Stronger Britain, and the choice is clear between strong leadership in the national interest with Theresa May and the Conservatives, and a weak and unstable coalition led by Jeremy Corbyn.
