Following the Prime Minister’s announcement today to call a General Election for June 8th Andrew Griffiths said, “I need your help. Today, the Prime Minister took the decisive decision to call a General Election on 8th June. I believe that this is the right decision for our country.
Our country faces huge challenges in the months and years ahead and we need strong leadership at these difficult times. Both Labour and Liberal Democrats MPs have said they want to wreck the Brexit negotiations and cause chaos for our country. We cannot allow that to happen. We need this election now to secure the strong and stable leadership the country needs to see us through Brexit and beyond.
The choice people in Burton and Uttoxeter face is between the strong and stable leadership in the national interest with Theresa May and the Conservatives, or a weak and unstable coalition Government led by Jeremy Corbyn.
It has been my greatest honour to represent you in Burton and Uttoxeter for seven years, and I have loved every moment of it. I believe that together we have achieved many good things for our area. I want to continue that work on your behalf, and will be standing again to be your MP. If you want me to continue then I need your support. Please pledge your support by joining Team Andrew here: www.teamandrew.co.uk.
The choice facing the country at this crucial election is all about leadership. Help me to ensure the strong and stable leadership we need on 8th June by voting Conservative.”
