Prime Minister Theresa May pledged to forge a Closer union within the U.K. in a rebuke to Scottish National Party leader Nicola Sturgeon, who started the week calling for a new independence referendum for Scotland.
May unveiled on Friday a “plan for Britain” covering every region in the country in a speech to her party at the Conservative Spring Conference in the Welsh capital, Cardiff. May was applauded as she repeated she would give notice to the European Union in the next two weeks that the U.K. is leaving it for good.
Brexit “means forging a more united nation, as we put the values of fairness, responsibility and citizenship at the heart of everything we do, and we strengthen the bonds of our precious union too,” she told Tory activists.
