Mundell backs May for leader

DUMFRIESSHIRE MP David Mundell is backing Theresa May to become the next leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister.

The Secretary of State for Scotland yesterday publicly gave his support to Mrs May, the Home Secretary, for the top job.
He believes she is the candidate to unite the country and would be a serious and competent leader.
The MP said: “In these difficult and testing times, I am backing Theresa May to be the next Conservative Party leader and the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
“Theresa will provide the strong and credible leadership the country needs as we negotiate our way out of the European Union as she is someone who has the experience of negotiating in Brussels.”
And he added: “I also believe that Theresa is the best candidate for Scotland as someone who will be able to bring the whole of the United Kingdom together, which is what needs to happen in the wake of the European Union referendum result.
“Theresa is a tough negotiator who will be ready to deliver the leadership the country needs from day one.”
