The Prime Minister has delivered his New Year’s message and has claimed that 2023 was a “momentous year” and promised that his party will continue to “keep driving forward” in 2024.
He said that in 2024 the government will make tax cuts, lower inflation “cutting the cost of living for everyone.”
Rishi Sunak said, “We’ve delivered record funding for the NHS and social care,” he said. “Schools in England are surging up the global league tables.
“We’re getting the economy growing. We’ve cut inflation in half. We’ve delivered the biggest business tax cut in modern British history.
“And in just the last few weeks, we’ve seen an incredible £60bn of investment into the UK. So my New Year’s resolution is to keep driving forward.”
Sunak said that the Conservatives are “not stopping there,” he added, “We’re going further to grow our economy by reducing debt, cutting taxes, and rewarding hard work, building secure supplies of energy here at home, backing British business and delivering world class education.”
He then promised to take a more “decisive action to stop the boats,” which is a pledge that he made at the start of 2023, but never delivered which has threatened his leadership.
The Prime Minister said that the UK “should look forward full of pride and optimism for what we can do together to build a brighter future for everyone.”
