Truss promises to face “storm” and highlights 3 priorities for term

 

New ruler did not forget her predecessor in her first speech as prime minister.

The new British prime minister, Liz Truss, assured, this Tuesday, that she is ready to face the “strong storm” caused by Vladimir Putin and make the United Kingdom better.

In a first speech as prime minister, in Downing Street, London, which started slightly late, Truss did not forget her predecessor, Boris Johnson.

“History will see him as an extremely consequential prime minister”, pointed out the new prime minister about Boris who “executed Brexit, faced the pandemic and the war”.

Highlighting the undeniable challenge that the war brought, Liz Truss assured that the United Kingdom will prevail and, for that, it is necessary to “reduce the burden of families” and transform “the United Kingdom into a nation of aspiration”.

Continuing her first speech, the prime minister promised to improve wages, lower taxes, make the streets safer, and also pointed out as three priorities to face the energy crisis, the economy and health in the country.

“I will act today, and act every day, to make this happen,” she assured.

Truss further emphasized the UK’s relationship with the rest of the world. “We cannot have security at home without having security abroad,” she pointed out.

In conclusion, the newly sworn in minister stressed that “together, we can weather the storm” and make the country more successful.

It is recalled that the new head of the British government was appointed today by Queen Elizabeth II in Scotland, where she had to travel due to the limitations of the 96-year-old monarch.

As the third prime minister after Margaret Thatcher (1979-1990) and Theresa May (2016-2019), Tuesday’s announcement of the government’s composition will be a first test for Truss, who has campaigned with right-wing policies.
