British Prime Minister David Cameron says he will lead a government for “one nation” and will make “Great Britain greater”. Speaking outside Number 10 Downing Street after visiting Buckingham Palace today, he said he believed the country was “on the brink of something special”. The Conservatives secured the 326 seats needed for a majority government in yesterday’s general election. It’s their first such victory since 1992 and their first back to back victory since Margaret Thatcher did it 1983.
Cameron’s rivals Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage have all resigned after election disappointment. Mr Cameron had said he will reach out to all parts of the UK and strive to “bring the country together” in the wake of the Scottish National Party’s election landslide in Scotland where it won 56 of the 59 seats.
