When I first stood here in Downing Street on that evening in May 2010, I said we would confront our problems as a country, and lead people through difficult decisions, so that together, we could reach better times. It's not been an easy journey, and of course, we've not got every decision right.
But I do believe that today, our country is much stronger. I'm delighted that for the second time in British history, the new prime minister will be a woman, and once again a conservative. I believe Theresa will provide strong and stable leadership in fulfilling the conservative manifesto on which we were elected, and I wish her well in negotiating the best possible terms for Britain's exit from the European Union.
It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve our country as Prime Minister over these last 6 years and to serve as leader of my party for almost 11 years.>>
