Theresa May’s resignation today – Ian Lavery responds

Ian Lavery MP, Labour Party Chair, commenting on Theresa May’s resignation today, said:

“The Conservatives’ legacy under Theresa May’s leadership is one of historic failure.

“They have let down renters, let down people on universal credit, let down older people receiving social care, betrayed the Windrush generation and done nothing to tackle the climate emergency.

“Theresa May’s reign is over but another unelected Tory Prime Minister will not make life any better for people in this country. We need a Labour government committed to standing up for the many, not the few.”
