Prime Minister David Cameron is sending a letter to members of his Conservative Party urging unity and stressing the importance of the "deep and lasting friendship" members enjoy. In it, he will say:
I am proud to lead this party. I am proud of what you do. And I would never have around me those who sneered or thought otherwise. We are a team, from the parish council to the local association to Parliament, and I never forget it.
Does that mean we will agree on everything? Of course not. The Conservative Party has always been a broad church – one which contains different views and opinions – and we must remain so today.
He stresses the need for the party to celebrate the achievements of the party, and praises the values of the Conservative activists for their values of "duty, decency and civil pride." His personal note ends:
So to those reading this, here is my message: there will always be criticism from the sidelines. But we must remember what this Party has always been about: acting in the national interest. Our task today is to clear up Labour’s mess and make Britain stand tall again.
We have a job to do for our country – and we must do it together.
