Victoria Prentis outlines why she is voting for Rory Stewart for leader and Prime Minister
In an editorial for Conservative Home, Victoria Prentis, MP for Banbury, outlined the reasons behind her decision to vote for Rory as Conservative Party leader and Prime Minister:
When I announced my support for Rory a week ago, he seemed a real out-rider. But there is energy and enthusiasm building behind his campaign. Over the weekend, the great and good have been coming out in his support.
But what has impressed me has been the reaction of those outside Westminster. So many of my constituents have got in touch to say I have chosen the right candidate. Rory has demonstrated an ability to connect with a broader electorate and the younger generation in a way that it seems others can’t.
The main reason to support Rory is that he stands for everything that I believe in. His values are my values. He believes in the Union, and rightly puts the environment at the top of the agenda. He knows we must deliver Brexit, and quickly. And at a time when we all understandably feel anxious about the future, it’s critical we choose a leader who we can trust to be honest with us.
His message and his approach will go down well in Banbury and Bicester. He appears to appeal to both urban and rural voters. I do not want a Corbyn government, and I believe that Rory is the best person to get Brexit done and win the 2022 election.
