She insisted her government would be about more than just Brexit, and voiced her determination to improve the lives of 'working class' people struggling to get by.

Two-year-old girl died 'after swallowing spare battery from television's 3D glasses that got stuck in her throat for a week and corroded'
Unbeknown to her parents, little Francesca Asan (pictured) went into a set of drawers at the family home in Basingstoke and took the 2cm battery out of its packaging, before putting it in her mouth. The toddler then endured seven days of agony as her worried parents made repeated appointments with medics to try and discover why their daughter was so unwell. It was only one week after the incident when the little girl went 'floppy' in her father's arms that she was rushed to hospital and doctors discovered what had happened. Tests showed the small three-volt lithium battery had eroded through her oesophagus into her artery, causing 'catastrophic' bleeding which led to her death. Despite efforts from medics, the little girl had developed severe blood clots in her stomach and died. Francesca suffered from congenital heart abnormalities, which meant her right subclavian artery was displaced. Today, at an inquest into her death attended by her father George (inset), coroner Andrew Bradley recorded a verdict of misadventure and said the case was a 'timely reminder' of the dangers of batteries.

However, he said inquiries showed the grandmother 'wilfully assaulted and ill-treated' the child for two years before her death. He said the death prompted an inquiry that revealed other children had been treated cruelly by Smikle.
