THERESA MAY declared her tour today of an Enfield radar manufacturer as a “good example” of a British company in need of a “strong” government after Brexit.
The Prime Minister called a general election two days ago and made a campaign visit to Kelvin Hughes, in Mollison Avenue, this afternoon, where she was taken on a tour of the factory, which makes and supplies navigation, surveillance and security radar systems.
“It’s exactly the sort of company that will be looking for a strong and stable leadership, with certainty from government in the future,” she said.
“We want to provide not just a good deal over Brexit, but good deals around the world, to enable companies like this to grow, provide jobs and bring prosperity.”
When asked how pollution levels would be tackled across Enfield if the Tories were elected again, Mrs May said although nitrogen dioxide levels had fallen by 20 per cent, from 2010 to 2015 across London, she was aware “more needed to be done.”
“That’s why we will be bringing forward further proposals on air quality in the future – I recognise it is an issue that matters to people,” she said.
“We have to ensure we get this right.”
In the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s first election speech today, he claimed his party would “overturn the rigged [economic] system”, and put wealth in the hands of working people.
Mrs May said to build a strong economy, the UK would need a “stable leadership” and that the Tories would get the “right deal” out of Brexit.
If Jeremy Corbyn was to get into power with support from the Liberal Democrats and the SNP, she described it as being a “coalition of chaos”.
“We’ve already seen their willingness to work with him – to frustrate what we want to do which is to get a good deal out of Brexit,” Mrs May added.
