British Prime Minister – level 3
Theresa May stepped down as UK’s prime minister and Boris Johnson took her place. Last Wednesday on July 24th, he gave his first speech as the British prime minister.
He thanked Theresa May for her service and shut down Brexit naysayers. He said that his administration is going to restore trust in British democracy and that Britain is going to leave the EU on October 31st.
The new Brexit deal that Johnson promised will let the UK develop a new partnership with the rest of Europe ‘based on free trade and mutual support’. He also promised hospital upgrades, more police officers in the streets and ‘superb’ education.
Difficult words: naysayer (a person who says nay – no to something), mutual (when you do something and another person does the same thing to help one another), superb (perfect, very good).
