We can use Brexit to shape a better future for UK: May

By Andrew Woodcock

Theresa May is to call on voters on both sides of the Europe debate to come together in next week's General Election to give her a mandate to "fulfil the promise of Brexit". In a bid to return Brexit to the heart of the General Election campaign after coming under fire for ducking a TV debate with other party leaders, Mrs May will use a high-profile speech in the North-East today to set out her vision of European Union withdrawal as part of a "great national mission" to build a stronger, fairer and more prosperous Britain.

With just a week to go to the election, the Prime Minister will say this future can only be delivered if voters make the right choice when they go to the polls on June 8.

"The brighter future we want for our country will not just happen," she will warn.

"This great national moment needs a great national effort in which we pull together with a unity of purpose and - however we voted in the referendum last June - we come together with a determination to make a success of the years ahead. Because together we can do great things.

"As I have said many times in the past, people can have faith in me because I have faith in them.

"I believe in the British people. I believe that with determination, ingenuity and common sense, we can use this moment of great national change to shape a better future for Britain.

"So, this is the time to choose."
