Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Barrow and Furness, Simon Fell, has today congratulated Boris Johnson for his resounding win today in the Conservative Leadership election.
Speaking from Ulverston, Simon said:
"I want to congratulate Boris Johnson on becoming the next Conservative leader and Prime Minister. His clear message on Brexit and his optimism and passion for Britain shone through during the campaign and carried him to victory.
"As someone who voted to Leave the EU myself, I'm glad that we now have a committed Brexiteer at the helm. It's time to get out of the EU and unite the country once more. We are an incredible nation with so many opportunities ahead of us. Boris' positivity and vision will be crucial in the days and weeks ahead of October 31st."
