PM May for UK ‘precious union’

Prime Minister Theresa May pledged  to fight for the “precious, precious union” of the United Kingdom, unveiling what she called her Plan for Britain with a warning to Scotland not to pursue its independence plans at the moment.

May underlined she would negotiate a Brexit deal for the whole country but needed everyone to pull together to get the best outcome.

Facing two years of what are likely to be challenging talks for Britain, May wants to stamp her authority on a new agenda for the country but is struggling to repair the deep divisions exposed by the Brexit vote.

“The coming negotiations with the EU will be vital for everyone in the United Kingdom … It is essential that we get the right deal, and that all of our efforts and energies as a country and focused on that outcome,” May told her party.

“We need to do so united, as one United Kingdom, all pulling together to get the best outcome,” she said, promising to ensure all the voices and interests in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are represented.

“I will always fight to strengthen and sustain this precious, precious Union,” she added.
