This morning newly elected Prime Minister Boris Johnson went to Buckingham Palace to inform her majesty his intent to form a new government in wake of his party’s majority win in Thursday’s election.
” Monday MPs will arrive at Westminster to form a new parliament and I am proud to say that members of our new one nation government – a people’s government – will set out from constituencies that have never returned a Conservative MP for 100 years,” said Johnson.
Johnson ran on a pledge to ” Get Brexit Done” and was given an overwhelming mandate to honour is rhetoric by Jan 31, 2020.
” I say thank you for the trust you have placed in us and in me and we will work round the clock to repay your trust and to deliver on your priorities. We will work together with the EU as friends and sovereign equals in tackling climate change and terrorism.
I urge everyone on either side of what after three and a half years after all an increasingly arid argument I urge everyone to find closure and to let the healing begin. I have heard it loud and clear from every corner of the country that the overwhelming priority of the British people now is that we should focus above all on the National Health Service.
Johnson paints a rosy picture and promises national unity in his maiden speech as the prime minister-elect. The prime minister is about to get his first test as a unifier with a brewing referendum in Scotland in wake of the Brexit movement.
