Grantham and Stamford MP Nick Boles ‘regrets’ resignation of Prime Minister
Nick Boles, MP for Grantham and Stamford, has expressed his disappointment at Prime Minister David Cameron’s decision to resign.
The PM’s resignation this morning – in a speech made outside 10 Downing Street – follows a Leave vote in the EU referendum.
This afternoon, Mr Boles told this newspaper: “The people I work for have made a momentous decision. I advised against it. But they call the shots and I will now do everything I can to help make a success of it.
“I regret very much that David Cameron has decided to resign as Prime Minister. He was a great leader of our country and is a good man.”
As a gay man, married to Shay Meshulam, Mr Boles also thanked Mr Cameron for his part in the introduction of same-sex marriage.
He said: “I will always be deeply grateful to him for offering me and thousands like me the chance to get married like everyone else.”
