The new Prime Minister warns ‘changing a country is not like flicking a switch’

5th Jul 24 1:50 pm

The UK’s new Prime Minister Sir Keir Starmer stood outside No. 10 Downing Street and promised voters to restore trust in politics.

Sir Keir said that people have voted “decisively for change” and that as Labour takes office the country will “move forward together.”

The new Prime Minister said, “Now our country has voted decisively for change, for national renewal and a return of politics to public service.

“When the gap between the sacrifices made by people and the service they receive from politicians grows this big, it leads to a weariness in the heart of a nation, a draining away of the hope, the spirit, the belief in a better future.

“But we need to move forward together. Now this wound, this lack of trust can only be healed by actions not words, I know that.

“But we can make a start today with the simple acknowledgement that public service is a privilege and that your government should treat every single person in this country with respect.”

He said, “my Government will serve you, politics can be a force for good,” Starmer added, “The work of change begins immediately, but have no doubt, we will rebuild Britain.”

Sir Keir said, “Changing a country is not like flicking a switch. The world is now a more volatile place. This will take a while.

“But have no doubt that the work of change begins immediately. Have no doubt that we will rebuild Britain, with wealth created in every community.

“Our NHS back on its feet facing the future. Secure borders, safer streets, everyone treated with dignity and respect at work. The opportunity of clean British power, cutting your energy bills for good.

“Brick by brick, we will rebuild the infrastructure of opportunity.”

He added, “From now on, you have a Government unburdened by doctrine, guided only by the determination to serve your interest, to defy quietly those who have written our country off.”
