It was fantastic to attend the Diwali reception at No. 10 tonight. In this position, I will do my best to create a Britain where our grandkids and great-grandchildren may light their diyas and have hope for the future. Happy #Diwali to everybody! he tweeted while posting a photo of himself at the party.
