LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister Theresa May says she has to win a “battle of ideas” in Parliament and the country after losing her majority in last month’s election.
In a speech both conciliatory and defiant, May urged her political opponents to contribute their “views and ideas” to help shape policy.
May spoke nearly a year after taking office, and just over a month after she suffered a setback from voters in a snap election.
She acknowledged Tuesday that the election result was “not what I wanted,” but said she remained committed to building a fairer Britain as the country leaves the European Union.
