Boris Johnson takes on the role of Prime Minister for the United Kingdom at a time when our country faces unprecedented challenges.
Deep divisions around Theresa May’s Brexit bungle coming on top of years of austerity have damaged our country. As Prime Minister Boris Johnson must heal those wounds.

Sally Keeble, has joined local residents in calling for the withdrawal of County plans for a new relief road which she says fails the Council’s own “fit for purpose”.
She says the plans for the new North West Relief Road will increase congestion, add to pollution and fails to meet the policies set in the County Council’s Transport plan “Fit for Purpose”. In particular it fails to link to public transport, limit carbon emissions or improve the road infrastructure around the north of Northampton.
Young people in Northampton staged a fantastic march through the town centre today protesting against the destruction being wreaked by climate change.
They were joined by Sally Keeble and activists from across the Labour Party environmental movement. The event was organised by three school students who spoke on the steps of All Saints Church about the crisis facing the planet – and the catastrophe we face if governments don’t act now to stop global warming.
