London – In her first speech as Prime Minister, new British Prime Minister Liz Truss promised to boost economic growth by cutting taxes and to take measures against rising energy prices this week. In an appearance today outside Downing Street, the traditional London seat of British prime ministers, she also pledged to tackle the crisis of the overburdened public health service.

Truss said she would focus on solving the problems that are “holding back” Britain. According to her, the country faces serious global obstacles due to the covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine. “I am confident that together we can weather the storm. We can rebuild our economy and become the modern great Britain that I know we can be,” Truss said.

The Prime Minister thanked her predecessor Boris Johnson, whom she replaced as Prime Minister today, for completing Brexit, helping to introduce vaccines against the covid-19 disease in Britain and standing up to Russia, which attacked neighboring Ukraine.

Truss’s first official speech as Prime Minister was marked by torrential rain, and for a while it was unclear whether the speech would take place outside 10 Downing Street or would have to be moved inside. Due to traffic delays and showers, Truss ended up performing later, but spoke outdoors as planned because the rain had stopped. Before her arrival in Downing Street, crowds of journalists, representatives of the governing Conservative Party and government office workers hid under umbrellas. Staff at the Prime Minister’s Office took turns bringing out and hiding the lectern, but eventually returned it to number ten and dried the microphones just before the Prime Minister’s arrival.

After the speech, Truss briefly posed for photographers with her husband Hugh O’Leary before entering the Prime Minister’s Office. Now she is waiting for the formation of the government and the official appointment of new cabinet members.

Liz Truss became British Prime Minister

Forty-seven-year-old former foreign minister Liz Truss became British prime minister. The Queen Elizabeth II. she was appointed to the position today at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, where she “kindly” accepted Boris Johnson’s resignation about an hour earlier, the BBC website reported.

Truss emerged as prime minister from an internal Tory vote, who preferred her to ex-finance minister Rishi Sunak.

After Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May, Elizabeth Truss is the third female head of the British government and the 15th Prime Minister during the reign of Elizabeth II.

The Independent’s political editor Andrew Woodcock said in an interview with the BBC that a new British prime minister normally has time to enjoy a short period of advocacy after his inauguration. But according to him, Trussová will go “straight into the hurricane”. “People are facing poverty, businesses are at risk of collapse. We need solutions very, very quickly,” Woodcock said.

The new Prime Minister will appoint the members of the new government this afternoon, which will meet for the first meeting on Wednesday morning.

Johnson made his last appearance in Downing Street before heading to the Queen

Before flying to Scotland, Johnson delivered his last speech as British Prime Minister in London’s Downing Street, in which he spoke of his economic, political and diplomatic achievements and called for support for the new Prime Minister’s government.

The prime minister, who is leaving office early despite his Conservatives’ triumphant election victory in December 2019, said today that like “a space launch vehicle that has done its job, it will now gently fall back into the atmosphere and crash into a remote region in the Pacific”.

“Like Cincinnatus, I now return to my plough,” Johnson said at the end of the speech, referring to the fifth-century BC Roman soldier and politician who saved the country from invasion and then “returned to the plough” on his own farm. However, he later returned to politics years later.

After a few minutes of speech, the outgoing Prime Minister, together with his wife Carrie, who shone in a pink dress among the darkly dressed and visibly moved Johnson’s colleagues, went to the Prime Minister’s Range Rover, where Johnson, for the last time as Prime Minister, posed for a photographer. He then headed to the British Air Force base Northolt near London, from where he flew to Scotland.
