Election results 2019: Former PM Theresa May is asked about projected Tory win - BBC News

- Former Prime Minister Theresa May says she is "very pleased at the majority" her successor appears to have secured.
She held her own seat of Maidenhead too.
Asked how he managed a majority when she didn't, she says: "At this election people were faced with a very clear choice on whether they wanted to ensure Brexit was delivered and knew if a Conservative majority government got in they would deliver Brexit.
"This election was about ensuring we could get over this deadlock in Parliament, get Brexit done and move on."
And can Mr Johnson get a trade deal with the EU by the end of next year?
"Yes," says Mrs May. "Because actually a lot of work on that has already been done, both in the original set of negotiations and in the political declaration.
"With the will on both sides to ensure we can now deliver, yes it is possible."
