As the British people marked the beginning of a New Year, Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has said that with the UK set to leave the EU on January 31, the Government could focus on the ‘people’s priorities’.
Johnson who made this known in his New Year message urged the people of Britain to unite as they start a new chapter in their history.
His words, ”As we say goodbye to 2019 we can also turn the page on the division, rancour and uncertainty which has dominated public life and held us back for far too long,’ he added. ‘We can start a new chapter in the history of our country, in which we come together and move forward united, unleashing the enormous potential of the British people.’
He said although the ‘first item’ on his agenda was to take Brexit out of the EU as soon as possible, he wants to be a ‘prime minister for everyone’, including the millions who backed Remain or did not vote Conservative in the general election.
“I want to reassure you that I will be a prime minister for everyone, not just those who voted for me. I know that you love this country no less, simply because you voted for another party or wanted to Remain.
“More than that, I want to work with you, as friends and equals, as we build the future this United Kingdom deserves. ‘So let’s together make the 2020s a decade of prosperity and opportunity,” he said
