The new British Prime Minister PM Boris Johnson on Wednesday, July 24th 2019 met with Queen Elizabeth at her Palace, a few hours after former PM Theresa May tendered her resignation as Prime Minister and First Lord of the Treasury.

The Queen who was pleased to see PM Boris Johnson, requested him to form a new Administration after she had graciously accepted the resignation of former Prime Minister, Theresa May.

Boris Johnson who earlier spoke about his plans for the United Kingdom outside Downing Street, said he wanted to “change the country for the better” while also assuring citizens that the United Kingdom would leave the EU on 31 October “no ifs, no buts”, adding: “The buck stops with me.”

“The doubters, the doomsters, the gloomsters” who said it could not be done were “wrong”, the new PM Boris Johnson added.

He also promised to sort out care for the elderly “once and for all”, and invest in transport and education.

Reforms to the social care sector have eluded previous governments because of their cost and complexity.

“We will fix it once and for all with a clear plan we have prepared to give every older person the dignity and security they deserve,” he insisted.

Mr Johnson also listed a wide range of domestic ambitions, including improving infrastructure and “levelling up” school spending, and reforms to ensure the £20bn in extra funding earmarked for the NHS “really gets to the front line”.

He pledged to boost the UK’s biotech and space science sectors, change the tax rules to provide incentives for investment and do more to promote the welfare of animals.

In some hours or days, the new PM Boris Johnson will put up his team for the huge task ahead, one obvious one being the Brexit, which Theresa May failed to deliver.
