"I've just been to see HM Queen and I will now form a majority Conservative government. I've been proud to lead the first coalition government in 70 years and I want to thank all those who worked so hard to make it a success and in particular on this day Nick Clegg. Elections can be bruising clashes of ideas and arguments and a lot of people who believe profoundly in public service have seen that service cut short.
"Ed Miliband rang me this morning to wish me luck with the new government. It was a typically generous gesture from someone who is clearly in public service for all the right reasons. The government I led did important work. It laid the foundations for a better future and now we must build on them. I truly believe we're on the brink of something special in our country: we can make Britain a place where a good life is in reach for everyone who is willing to work and do the right thing.
"Our manifesto is a manifesto for working people and as a majority government we will be able to deliver all of it: indeed, it is the reason why I think majority government is more accountable. Three million apprenticeships, more help with childcare, helping 30 m people cope with the cost of living by cutting their taxes building homes that people are able to buy and own, creating millions more jobs that give people the chance of a better future and yes, we will deliver that in-out referendum on our future in Europe.
"As we conduct this vital work we must ensure that we bring our country together. As I said in the small hours of this morning, we will govern as a party of one nation, one United Kingdom. That means ensuring this recovery reaches all parts of our country from north to south, from east to west, and indeed it means rebalancing our economy, building that northern powerhouse.
