When I became your Prime Minister the United Kingdom had just voted to leave the European Union From my first day in the job I knew I had a clear mission before me -a duty to fulil on your behalf to honour the result of the referendum and secure a brighter future for our country by negotiating a good Brexit deal with the EU Throughout the long and complex negotiations that have taken place over the last year and a half I have never lost sight of that duty Today I am in Brussels with the firm intention of agreeing a Brexit deal with the leaders of the other 27 EU nations It will be a deal that is in our national interest one that works for our whole country and all of our people whether you voted Leave' or 'Remain It will honour the result of the referendum We wl take back control of our borders by putting an end to the free movement of people once and for all Instead of an immigration system based on where a person comes from we will build one based on the skills and talents a person has to offer We will take back control of our money by putting an end to vast annual payments to the EU Instead we will be able to spend British taxpayer's money on our own priorities like the extra £394 million per week that we are investing in our long-term plan for the NHS And we will take back control of our laws by ending the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in the UK In future our laws will be made interpreted and enforced by our own courts and legislatures We will be out of EU programmes that do not work in our interests out of the Common Agricultural Policy that has failed our farmers and out of the Common Fisheries Policy that has failed our coastal communities Instead we will be able to design a system of agricultural support that works for us and we will be an independent coastal state once again with full control over our waters The deal also protects the things we value EU citizens who have built their lives in the United Kingdom will have their rights protected as will UK citizens living elsewhere in the EU A free trade area will allow goods to flow easily across our borders protecting the many skilled jobs right across the country that rely on integrated supply-chains Because our European friends will always be our allies in the fight against terrorism and organised crime the deal wl ensure that security co-operation will continue so we can keep our people safe I will be campaigning with my heart and soul to win that vote and to deliver this Brexit deal for the good of our United Kingdom and all of our people Theresa May has written an open letter to the British public to appeal for their support for the Brexit deal She said her plan promises a brighter future for the UK and leaving the EU will be a moment of renewal and reconciliation for our whole country EU leaders are in Brussels for a special summit to decide whether to endorse the deal Many UK MPs - including Conservatives - say they will vote against it Click the link in our bio to follow all the latest as it happens Brexit politics unitedkingdom EU bbcnews Meme
