On the resignation of prime minister David Cameron, which was announced this morning, Mrs Drummond added: ‘I am very sad. I think he has been a very good prime minister and a very unifying prime minister.

‘He gave us the referendum which a lot of people wanted. It is sad for the country as well as the party.

‘We have now got to see who we think if the best person to rule the country.

‘It has got to be someone everyone can respect.

‘At the same time, I hope it does not distract us from the real jobs like getting people out of deprivation and the importance of education which are so vital to people in Portsmouth.’
