Former PM Theresa May calls for SNP to accept independence referendum result

Former prime minister Theresa May has called on the Scottish National Party to accept the independence referendum result.

The SNP, who gained 13 seats, has been campaigning for a second vote, despite 55.3% of Scots voting to stay in the UK in the 2014 referendum.

Mrs May, who held her Maidenhead seat, said: "The SNP themselves said in 2014 that the referendum was once in a generation, indeed a once in a life-time referendum, and therefore they should accept that result.

"And of course we all know it is in Scotland's economic interest to be a part of the UK."

She added: "I think its time the SNP focused on the day-to-day issues on the job of governing in Scotland and stopped simply putting this single issue of independence forward."

The Maidenhead MP's majority reduced following a 10.1% swing to the Lib Dems.

'A bright future out there' says Theresa May.

Former PM Theresa May is optimistic about the future, after being returned as the Maidenhead MP - albeit with a reduced majority.

Maidenhead: Conservative hold

Former Prime Minister Theresa May has been re-elected as the MP for Maidenhead, with a decreased majority.

The ex-Conservative leader, who stepped down in June 2019 after failing to get her Brexit deal through parliament, beat Liberal Democrat Joshua Reynolds by 18,846 votes, 7,611 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Patrick McDonald of the Labour Party came third and the Green Party's Emily Tomalin came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 2.9 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 56,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the four candidates, Emily Tomalin (Green) lost her £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
