Luke Graham’s Statement on May’s Resignation

Although the Prime Minister is standing down, it should not be forgotten that the PM has been responsible for helping reduce the deficit and getting our national debt down. The introduction of the modern industrial strategy, getting more people into work than ever before, tackling climate change and improving air quality.

The Prime Minister also spearheaded new laws to support survivors of domestic abuse, tackle inequality through the race disparity audit and gender pay reporting and protected the Union of the United Kingdom from the SNP and their obsession with a Second Independence referendum.

Having been Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to the Cabinet Office and to David Lidington, the Deputy Prime Minister, I have seen the effort and resilience of the Prime Minister and her team over the past months at first hand.

“To serve the country I love” - as Prime Minister I don’t believe Theresa May could have tried any harder.
