5:43 am
withdrawing from the european union. a nine week leadership campaign at such a critical moment for our country is highly undesirable. business needs certainty. a strong and unified government must move quickly to set out what an independent united kingdom's framework for business looks like. it is also essential that current workers in the u.k. and businesses that employ them know where they stand. the conservative party was elected only last year with a strong manifesto. we now need a new prime minister in place as soon as possible, committed to the filling that manifesto as well as implementing the clear instructions of the referendum. theresa may carries over 60% of
5:44 am
the support from the parliamentary party. she is ideally placed to implement brexit on the best possible terms for the british people and she has promised that she will do so. for me personally, to have won the support of 84 of my colleagues last thursday with a great expression of confidence, for which i am credibly -- incredibly rightful. was less thanthis 25% of the party and after careful consideration, i do not believe this is sufficient support to lead a strong and stable government should i win the leadership election. privilegeo greater than to leave the conservative party in government and i would .e deeply honored to do it i have however concluded that the interest of our country is

5:46 am
job, something that seems to have backfired. >> indeed. she has pulled out of this two-way contest to become the next conservative party leader, the next united kingdom prime minister to succeed david cameron. i think the question from the journalists that remained unanswered was the key point. why has she changed her mind? she says that she has changed her mind because 60% of the parliamentary party of competitive and pes have backed her rival, the home secretary, theresa may and that she, andrea hassome -- andrea leadsom 25. she has had a very bad few days. she gave an interview to the times where she underlined how
5:47 am
dsom had aa lea stake in the future because she had children. she said she understood better what it meant to leave the country forward. she has grandchildren. so the scrutiny of the media is really, i think, the undoing of andrea leadsom. downturn asll theresa may, only 20 minutes ago will lay out her stall on an economic front of what she theresa may, wants to do w when she becomes prime minister. she made that speech before dsom pulled out. one word. titimetable.

the ballot and stand against heher. ththere are different legal advices about that and there is no c certainty but jeremy corbyn will be e automatically on the ballot. will there b be other candididas besides angela eagle? we don't know but it is not impossible. predictions are a waste dangerous and as we haveve seen, totally impossible. determined,byn is so as he says he has the support as he did last autumn of 60% of the labour party members. he says he is prepared to take them to court so we could get a very ugly situation, certainly in the labour party unlike the onone that looks likike a coronn in the conservative party. we could get a nasty situation in the labour party where there is a war between the labor mps in westmtminster that represent the whole of thehe country and
