Outgoing British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday morning delivered his last speech before his handover to Liz Truss and offered to support the new leader.

Johnson also sounded out his government’s accomplishments including Brexit, the roll out of the coronavirus vaccine and arming Ukraine.

“This is it, folks. In only a couple of hours, I will be in Balmoral to see Her Majesty the Queen and the torch will finally be passed to a new Conservative leader.

“I just say to my party, if Dylan and Larry (the Downing Street cat) can put behind them their occasional difficulties, then so can the Conservative party.

“It’s time for politics to be over folks, it’s time for us all to get behind Liz Truss and her team and deliver for the people of this country.”

“Because that’s what the people of this country want, that’s what they need, and that’s what they deserve,”

“I am like one of those booster rockets that has fulfilled its function. I will be supporting Liz Truss and the new government every step of the way,” Johnson pledged as he spoke from a lectern outside 10 Downing Street.

“We had a fantastic group of public servants, the people who got Brexit done, the people who delivered the fastest vaccine rollout in Europe.”

“Together, we have laid foundations that will stand the test of time whether by taking back control of our laws, or putting in vital new infrastructure, great solid masonry on which we will continue to build together paving the path of prosperity now and for future generations.”

The embattled Johnson blamed Russia’s “vicious war” on Ukraine for the energy woes plaguing Europe, and added that the UK has the “economic strength to give people the cash they need to get through this energy crisis.”

“I know that Liz Truss, and this compassionate Conservative government will do everything we can to get people through this crisis, and this country will endure it and we will win,” the 58-year-old Johnson stated.

Johnson will to fly to Scotland to hand his resignation letter to the Queen while Truss is expected to address the UK on Tuesday afternoon.
