BRITAIN will face “dire consequences” if it fails to secure a clean exit from the European Union, Theresa May warned as she unveiled her manifesto on Thursday.

Theresa May warns of ‘DIRE CONSEQUENCES’ if Britain does not secure clean break from EU

The Prime Minister vowed not to “fudge the issue – to be half-in and half-out of the EU” if the Conservatives win next month’s General Election.

In a bid to woo committed Brexiteers and Ukip voters, Mrs May pledged to take Britain completely out of both the single market and the customs union.

She also kept the pledge to cut migration in the UK to fewer than 100,000 per year, despite failing to do so in her six years as Home Secretary in David Cameron’s Government.

The Prime Minister said getting the best Brexit deal was the single most important challenge facing her Government over the next five years.

Brexit, the economy, social divisions, an ageing society and technology are listed as the five “giant challenges” in the Conservative manifesto.

If we succeed, the opportunities ahead of us are great

Mrs May said: “Make no mistake, the central challenge we face is negotiating the best deal for Britain in Europe.

“Our future prosperity, our place in the world, our standard of living, and the opportunities we want for our children – and our children’s children – each and every one depends on having the strongest possible hand as we enter those negotiations in order to get the best Brexit deal for families across this country.

“If we fail, the consequences for Britain and for the economic security of ordinary working people will be dire. If we succeed, the opportunities ahead of us are great.”

She added: “I have negotiated for Britain in Europe. And I know that the best place to start is to be clear about where you stand and what you want.

“That is why I have been clear that we do not seek to fudge this issue – to be half-in and half-out of the EU.

“The British people made their choice. I respect that. And I respect the view of other European leaders who agree we can’t be half-in, half-out either.

    “So we will leave the European Union and take control of our money, take control of our borders and take control of our laws.

    “We will forge a new deep and special partnership with Europe, but reach out beyond Europe to strike new trade deals for our goods and services with old allies and new friends around the world too.

    “We will make the decisions that matter to Britain here in Britain and be a great, global trading nation that stands tall in the world once again.”
