The former prime minister said that Mrs May was right to remain in office despite losing the majority that he had bequeathed her, but he warned “over Brexit, she is going to have to talk more widely and listen to other parties,” reports the Financial Times. It also quotes John Major, another former UK Conservative prime minister, as urging Mrs May to “negotiate a better deal on free movement”, saying that “a hard Brexit was not endorsed by the electorate”. Michael Gove, a high-profile Brexiteer who was returned to the cabinet over the weekend, is quoted as saying: “We need to ensure that those who voted Remain are part of the conversation about what the best deal for Britain is in the future.”
