Stephen Crabb, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, has confirmed that he will enter the race to become the new Conservative Party leader.
Writing in the Daily Telegraph Crabb said:
“We cannot allow this leadership election to be defined by divisive labels like “Remainer” and “Brexiteer”. The quicker we can focus on the future, the better chance we have to unite our party and the country. Second, we will enact the British people’s wishes on the EU. The verdict was clear: there is no going back. A second referendum is out of the question. What the country needs now is a clear direction, not further instability”.
