Despite the outcome, our manifesto was a step in the right direction, from which we must not retreat backwards.

There is a radical, ambitious zeal evident throughout the document, and it is shown again in the desire to end iniquitous disparities between the generations.
Nadhim Zahawi: A message from Labour voters in my seat that I’ve never heard before. They’re backing a Conservative Prime Minister.
I truly believe that this election will finally banish the tribal, class-driven polarisation of workers versus bosses. That rhetoric will be firmly placed in the dustbin of history.
Nadhim Zahawi: Labour MPs know that Corbyn is weak on defence, Trident and our enemies. So how on earth can they support him?
Many have already described why he is unfit for the job. Indeed, many have tried to remove him. Their support now is a joke, a delusion, a denial of reality.
Any military action against the country would be highly likely to create huge regional instability, economic disruption, as well as potential wider war and loss of life.
You may well hear grumbling from businesses about the levy which will help to fund them – but the effort will be worth it.
Nadhim Zahawi: An independence referendum on the SNP’s timetable wouldn’t be fair to Scotland. But they don’t care.
We cannot have a vote when all that is known is what legal deal has been agreed.
Nadhim Zahawi: It isn’t UKIP that stands to gain from the collapse of Labour. It’s the Conservatives.
The “People’s Army” is an unpopular party and an unattractive brand. They always have been, and Brexit has changed nothing.
Nadhim Zahawi: Britain stands on the brink of a new global future. Let’s lead the way to a malaria-free world.
Phenomenal progress has been made to halt and begin to reverse its spread. Sustaining our efforts now is vital.
Nadhim Zahawi: I found myself banned from Trump’s America. But I want his state visit to go ahead – and to tell him why he’s mistaken.
I fear that the President has poured fuel on the fire of extremism; and created enemies, rather than winning friends.
It has been fabulous to see ECOWAS stand up and enforce progress in their own region.
Nadhim Zahawi: New support for those yearning to own their own homes. The Government is delivering on housing.
We must preserve our beautiful countryside – but we must also continue to find places to build homes where people can live. There has to be a balance.
Nadhim Zahawi: Britain cannot be an international Jobcentre Plus. Free movement from the EU must be curbed.
It is scarcely believable for Dianne Abbott to still be stating that Jeremy Corbyn ‘is not concerned about numbers’ – but it’s true.
Yes, we should not intervene in a country without a plan. But we must also say that we will limit the powers and abilities of those who do unspeakable evil.
Nadhim Zahawi: Clinton didn’t lose because of racism or sexism. She lost because she had nothing new to offer
This result was a classic case of “it’s the economy, stupid”, as swathes of the traditionally Democrat-voting areas of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan turned red.
