Statement - Prime Minister on Finsbury Park attack

STATEMENT BY THE PRIME MINISTER

This morning, our country woke to news of another terrorist attack on the streets of our capital city: the second this month and every bit as sickening as those which have come before.

W2W - The Grenfell Tower Fire

THE terrible Grenfell Tower fire in West London still smoulders on as I write.
My heart goes out to the shattered survivors, many of whom have lost everything.
The death toll is mounting and the numbers of those still missing suggest an unthinkable, final count.

A huge thank you

WHAT a great honour and privilege it is to be returned as MP for South Dorset.

Thank you to those who voted for me, and to those who did not, I shall continue to serve everyone without fear or favour.

Diary - a hold for S Dorset

We heard the general election result in S Dorset at about 0415, if I recall. We had held, gaining 56.1 per cent share of the vote, up on 2015. The turnout was high at 68.7 per cent. My majority now stands at 11,695.

Diary - election day

The rain held off as S Dorset went to the polls. I began the day on Portland Bill, before dropping in on the Coastwatch tower to thank the volunteers for all that they do. I did the same thing at the beginning of the last two elections and is now a routine.

Diary - out and about

Out and about. Nearly there! Everyone to polling booths tomorrow. 

Diary - final week

Final week of the general election - my third in seven years. And, as usual, I was out and about all day meeting prospective constituents. A lot of useful and helpful feedback on a huge range of issues. My final evening Drax Direct in Studland Village Hall. Well attended. 

Diary - another appalling terrorist outrage

I am truly shocked and sickened this morning at the news of yet another attack on innocent people in London. It's reported that seven people are dead and nearly 50 injured. It beggars belief how anyone could behave like this.
