The British Prime Minister made five promises to the British people on Wednesday Rishi Sunak in his first speech of the new year, highlighting his determination to achieve them.
Among other things, Sunak pledged to boost the economy, reduce hospital waiting lists and stop migrant crossings in the English Channel in his first speech of the year.
Speaking in Stratford, the prime minister set out his priorities for 2023 asking the public to judge his premiership on the following five promises:
- to halve inflation
- to develop the economy
- to reduce debt
- to reduce hospital waiting lists
- to stop migrant crossings into the UK
Mr Sunak promised to work “night and day” to meet the above five challenges during the term of this parliament, and to create “a future that restores optimism, hope and pride to Britain”.
According to SKAI correspondent Thanasis Gavos, he acknowledged that currently the most acute problems are recorded in dealing with emergencies in public hospitals and promised “immediate action” to increase beds by 7,000. Referring to the wave of strikes in recent months, he called for a “reasonable dialogue” with the unions.
The British Prime Minister also announced that he will take steps to ensure that all students in the country are taught maths by the age of 18, so that they have a better chance in the future job market.
“These are the priorities of the people. They are your government’s priorities. And we will either achieve them or not. No gimmicks, no ambiguity, we’ll either make it work for you or not. We will rebuild trust in politics through action or nothing at all. Therefore, I ask you to judge us for the effort we are making and the results we are achieving,” he said, addressing the British.
