New British Prime Minister Boris Johnson makes a barn-burner of a speech in front of 10 Downing St on his first day on the job, rallying Britons to believe in the country and says the government must win back the trust of the UK electorate.

Mr. Johnson also vowed to deliver Brexit — ‘Deal’ or ‘No Deal’ — in the 99-days left before the official Brexit date of October 31, 2019 which will please millions of Brexiteers to no end, plus it will please millions of people who voted ‘Remain’ in the 2016 EU referendum but who respect the democratic result and want 3-years of economic uncertainty to end.

The new PM touched on a wide range of issues that are important to his new government and to the country in his 11-minute speech.

While the new occupant of 10 Downing St has a number of cabinet positions to fill and other things to attend to in the coming days and weeks, he has inspired confidence from his first hour on the job with his obvious ‘can-do’ spirit.

I wish him the very best in his new role.
