Blog: Boris set to unleash UK’s power as EU shackles cast aside in MAJOR speech – Express

Boris Johnson felt emboldened yesterday as ‘Red Wall’ voters remained loyal and Tory backbenchers dismissed suggestions of a leadership challenge.

The better than expected local election results left the Prime Minister in a bullish mood as he spoke to the Daily Express about his renewed vigour to “deliver for Britain”.

He declared Tory losses “could have been a lot worse” and believes the Government can go from “strength to strength”.

Speaking from 10 Downing Street while preparing for the Queen’s Speech next week, Mr Johnson said: “It’s a bumpy time and I do understand what people are going through.

“The message from voters is that they want us to focus on getting through this challenging period, and that’s what we shall do.

“And we shall do it with every ounce of compassion and ingenuity.

“We will stop at nothing to deliver for a better Britain.

“We are getting on with levelling up and the record investment proves we’re on the right track.

“We’re focusing on the big issues and I think the British people understand we’re doing our level best to get people through the economic aftershocks.

“We will get through these troubled times, but I’m also one hundred percent focused on ensuring we have safer streets with more police on the streets, and communities getting the support they deserve.

“There’s much in the pipeline that will deliver for Britain for now, and the long-term future. We have a vision.

“We will build more nuclear plants to reduce our dependence on imported energy.

“We made Brexit work, we dealt with the pandemic and this proves we can deliver.”
