Theresa May published the Conservative party’s manifesto today ahead of the General Election on the 8 June. The notable position emerging from it is her intention to take a hard line on the forthcoming Brexit negotiations with the EU, due to start at the end of June.
Some of the key statements to note from the manifesto include:
- “We will no longer be members of the single market or customs union”
- “The days of Britain making vast annual contributions to the European Union will end”
- “We continue to believe that no deal is better than a bad deal for the UK”
- “It is our objective to reduce immigration to sustainable levels, by which we mean annual net migration in the tens of thousands”
- “We will continue to maintain the same cash total in funds for farm support until the end of the parliament.”
