I WILL DELIVER! Liz Truss enters Downing St vowing to turn Britain into Aspiration Nation

LIZ Truss became Britain’s 78th Prime Minister today after the controversial removal of Boris Johnson, who resigned earlier today. 

She entered Downing Street with a mighty task, just hours after Boris Johnson used his farewell address to pledge “fervent support” to his successor.

She started by paying tribute to Boris Johnson telling Brits she was “honoured” to become Prime Minister and recognised his achievements on Brexit, the Vaccine Rollout and Ukraine.

She said: “Our people have shown grit courage and determination time and time again.”

“We have what it takes to tackle challenges” facing Britain, and vowed: “We will transform Britain”

She said: “I will deal hands on with the energy crisis caused by Putin’s war.

“I will take action this week to deal with energy bills to secure our future energy supply.”

The PM vowed: “I will make sure that people can get doctor’s appointments and the NHS services they need.

“We will put our health service on a firm footing by delivering on the economy, on energy and on the NHS.

“We will put our nation on the path to long term success.”

ASPIRATION NATION

Truss also promised to turn Britain into an “aspiration nation”.

She said her Government will focus on creating high paying jobs, safe streets, and a country where everyone everywhere has the opportunities they deserve.

Mr Johnson used his speech on departing No 10 to call on the Tory party to unite behind Ms Truss, but he could not conceal his bitterness at the way he was ousted.

Truss’ main problems to deal with will be the Cost of Living Crisis, the Energy Crisis, the War in Ukraine.
