Continue The Legacy! Boris Johnson URGES New PM to ‘Grab the Torch and Keep Running’

Boris Johnson says he is ‘proud’ of delivering on his promises and backed his successor to ‘grab the torch and keep running’.

The Prime Minister said the British people are “heroic” and will get through the winter cost of living crisis before the country bounces back “strongly”.

Mr Johnson insisted that the UK has the funds to assist even higher earners, but that the majority of the assistance must go to those who need it the most.

He also stated that he plans to campaign to keep Ukrainian support united because President Zelensky is “keen for me to keep my hand in somehow.”

Despite being forced to resign after dozens of colleagues turned on him, the premier insisted he is still committed to his party.

But reflecting on his own record, Mr Johnson said he stuck to his promises during his three years in the job.

“I’m proud of the things that we did,” he said.

“I did deliver what I said I was going to do. Our goals were to deliver Brexit, unite the party, defeat Corbyn and energise the country and I think we did that.”
