“We have work to do. We have to deliver on exactly what the Prime Minister set out to do, which are some of the biggest key reforms that address issues the country would have liked to have addressed years ago, such as health and social care. issues in Northern Ireland that have not been addressed for decades.

“This is someone who wants to deal with it and do it in a way that delivers for everyone in the UK and that’s why I think he will win the next election.”
