Rishi Sunak has officially been appointed as the third Prime Minster this year after meeting with King Charles III.
Standing at the new lectern outside No.10 Downing Street the Prime Minister warned the UK “is “facing a profound economic crisis,” as the aftermath of the pandemic still “lingers.”
Paying tribute to Liz Truss he said in warm words that she was enthusiastic to make changes, but admitted that “some mistakes were made,” adding, they were not the result of “bad intentions,” however, they were “mistakes nonetheless.”
In a very well constructed speech Sunak said, “I have been made the leader of the party and your Prime Minister, in part, to fix them, and that work begins now.”

The Prime Minister added, “I understand I have work to do to restore trust after all that has happened.
“All I can say is that I am not daunted.”
Sunak thanked the former Prime Minister Boris Johnson in his speech and said, “I will always be grateful to Boris Johnson for his incredible achievements as prime minister, and I treasure his warmth and generosity of spirit.
“And I know he would agree that the mandate my party earned in 2019 is not the sole property of any one individual.
