Theresa May’s snap general election on June 8 has received the full support of Romford MP Andrew Rosindell.

Mrs May said as a result of the EU referendum the country needed stability, certainty and strong leadership.

Mr Rosindell agreed with the move.

“I think the prime minster has made the right decision to grant the British people the opportunity to elect a new parliament and government,” he said.

“The prime minster needs a clear and strong mandate from the British people to get on with the job of Brexit and put Britain first.

In her speech Mrs May referred to opposition from Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish National Party (SNP) as factors which lead to her decision.

The prime minster said the Lib Dems wanted to “grind” the business of government to a standstill, the SNP would vote against negotiations and Labour had threatened to vote against the final Brexit agreement.

“The country is coming together but Westminster is not,” she said.

Mr Rosindell added a strong majority was needed to get on with what was in Britain’s best interest.

“I hope the people of Romford and Havering will support this,” he said.

“By electing Conservative MPs they can ensure the best interests of the country.”
