‘Dawn of New Era’. Message from Boris Johnson
On January 31 at 11pm the Prime Minister told the nation that Brexit marks ‘not an end but a beginning’. In a video message he said “This is the moment when the dawn breaks and the curtain goes up on a new act.” This is according to snippets released in advance by Downing Street. “This is the dawn of a new era in which we no longer accept that your life chances. Your family’s life chances – should depend on which part of the country you grow up in.”
PM also stressed his belief that the referendum was a vote not just to leave the EU, but also for lasting change in neglected areas of the country.
At 11pm on Friday Britain will legally leave the EU and enter a ‘transition period’ which runs until December 31. During this time the UK will remain subject to EU laws and free movement of people will continue.
