General Election June 2017: Reaction

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

 

Prime Minister Theresa May shocked the nation to seek a General Election on 8th June. 


What was the political reaction to this?


  • Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party


"I welcome the PM's decision to give the British people the chance to vote for a government that will put the interests of the majority first."


  • Former Prime Minister David Cameron


"Brave - and right - decision by PM. My very best wishes to all Conservative candidates." 


  • Nicola Sturgeon, Leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party


"The Tories see a chance to move the UK to the right, force through hard Brexit and impose deeper cuts. Let's stand up for Scotland."


  • Tim Farron, Leader of the Liberal Democrats


"This election is your chance to change the direction of our country. 

If you want to avoid a disastrous Hard Brexit. If you want to keep Britain in the Single Market. If you want a Britain that is open, tolerant and united, this is your chance. 

Only the Liberal Democrats can prevent a Conservative majority."
