Theresa May has backed Theo Clarke to be Bristol East’s next MP after being invited by Theo to visit Brislington early this month. The Prime Minister attended a rally with local residents at Hungerford sports and social club and asked local people to lend their vote to her candidate, Theo Clarke, on June 8th.
She said “Theo Clarke is standing with me to secure strong and stable leadership for our country, and the best Brexit deal possible for you and your constituency of Bristol East”.
“Theo Clarke will be a strong voice for your community in my Government, and together we will always stand up for you and your interests”
The Prime Minister also highlighted the choice facing local people in Bristol East, saying “It is important to remember that a vote for anyone other than Theo here risks Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister of a shambolic coalition government”.
“So back me with a vote for Theo Clarke here in Bristol East on 8th June and together we can get on with the job of making life in Britain better for everyone”
Theo Clarke, a strong proven local campaigner with a record of standing up for residents in Bristol East, said “I’m really pleased that the Prime Minister visited Brislington to meet local residents with me. I’m running to be Bristol East’s next MP as a proud member of Theresa’s team so I can provide the strong leadership for our community locally and by working with Theresa May’s Government”.
“I know a number of local people will have never considered voting Conservative before in Bristol East, but this election is not like other elections. The upcoming Brexit negotiations will affect our country for decades to come, your children and grand-children. With so much at stake, I’m asking you to lend me your vote this time so that together, we can support Theresa May and prevent Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister”.
