May christmas message urges unity after Brexit vote
Theresa May has urged Britain to “unite and move forward” after the Brexit vote in her first Christmas message as PM. In the year that saw the UK vote by 52% to 48% to leave the EU, Mrs May said “As we leave the European Union we must seize a historic opportunity to forge a bold new role for ourselves in the world and to unite our country as we move forward into the future.” She pledged to “stand up for the freedom of people of all religions to practice their beliefs in peace and safety” and paid tribute to those who work over Christmas, including health and care workers, emergency services and the armed forces. The prime minister said there had been much to celebrate in 2016 with the Queen’s 90th birthday and British successes in the Olympics and Paralympics. “Wherever you are this Christmas, I wish you joy and peace in this season of celebration, along with health and happiness in the year ahead”, she said.
