Conservative Party members in Stratford on Avon unanimously re-adopted Nadhim Zahawi as their candidate for the General Election. Speaking afterwards he said:
‘‘Any election result will leave some people satisfied and a smaller number unhappy. The vote on leaving the EU last June was no exception but whatever side of the argument you were on a year ago it is clear that most people are keen to see us move on and secure the best possible deal from Brexit. But what was not clear was the extent to which some opposition politicians would go to ensure that Britain never leaves the EU.
