HARLOW MP Robert Halfon has paid tribute to Theresa May on the day she announced she was standing down as leader of the Conservative party.
There were emotional scenes as Mrs May made the announcement outside 10 Downing Street on Friday morning.
Mr Halfon said: “Mrs May should be proud of her legacy. She did cut the cost of living her millions of people, she put money in to the NHS and raised the minimum wage.
“I will be backing Sajid Javid. We need a leader who is going to unify the country and I believe Sajid Javid can do that.
“I have known him for many years and his journey to become an MP will inspire many people. He embodies the ladder of the opportunity, of aspiration and merit.”
YH will catch up with Mr Halfon when he returns to the constituency.
