THE next five years will be “the most challenging that Britain has faced” in 60 years, prime minister Theresa May has said.
The Conservative Party launched its General Election manifesto yesterday pledging to complete the task of leaving the European Union, rebuild the economy, tackle social divides, deal with issues caused by an ageing population and be prepared to deal with new technology.
In her foreword to what she called “my manifesto for Britain’s future”, Mrs May said: “The next five years are the most challenging that Britain has faced in my lifetime.
“Brexit will define us: our place in the world, our economic security and our future prosperity.
“So now more than ever, Britain needs a strong and stable government to get the best Brexit deal for our country and its people.
“Now more than ever, Britain needs strong and stable leadership to make the most of the opportunities Brexit brings for hard-working families.
“Now more than ever, Britain needs a clear plan.”
