David Davis: Brexit is the defining issue of our age. The choice today to lead us through it is – May or Corbyn
We cannot afford to get it wrong. The Prime Minister is the right woman to go out to bat for Britain. She will deliver a strong deal and a bright future for everyone.
“I become quite alarmed when the Prime Minister and others talk about changing our human rights legislation.”
There is a concerted effort this morning to suggest that it is business as usual. This isn’t good enough. Voters deserve a sober examination of the choices.
Her new administration would be on the right side on the big issues – Brexit, immigration, Islamism; and would likely feel its way towards the right answer on the economy and trade.
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.

WATCH: Manchester’s Chief Constable – “It’s very clear that this is a network that we’re investigating”
“We have made three further arrests overnight, and this afternoon used a controlled explosion at an address at the city centre.”
Troops deployed. No MPs to probe Ministers. Temperer set to continue. No normal campaigning. We enter No Man’s Land.
The combination of a terror atrocity, mass deployment of troops, an election campaign and no legislature takes us into unchartered waters.
Five thousand armed soldiers are deployed on Britain’s streets as the terror threat level is raised to “critical”
This highest of five threat levels means that “an attack is expected imminently”. They are set not by the Prime Minister, but by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre.
These terrorists are fanatics – not just “losers”. Or simply “evil”. Until we grasp this, we won’t beat them.
Fear of western girls and women is a part of the ideology which is struggling for control of Islam – the hatred of liberal democracy where Salafism and Islamism meet.
Mohammed Amin: As a Muslim, Briton and Mancunian, I believe that defeating terror requires us to stay united
I am fed up to the back teeth with people pronouncing that such terrorist atrocities have nothing to do with the perpetrators’ religious views.
The Prime Minister has suspended her election campaign. COBRA met at 9am this morning.
WATCH: Rudd – “This was a barbaric attack deliberately targeting young people and children out at a pop concert”
“It was a particular attack on the most vulnerable in our society. Its intention was to sow fear. Its intention was to divide. It will not succeed.”
