I think my political beliefs are really quite straightforward.
I believe that our country needs to work for everyone.
Not just for the rich, not just for the privileged,
not just for those who know the right people or who've got
the loudest voices, but a country that really works for everyone,
where every single person
has the opportunity to be who they want to be.
In order to make sure that the country works for everyone,
we've got to fight for it.
Standing up for the vulnerable, for the voiceless,
against those who feel that they're strong and powerful.
If you're doing the right thing, then you must do that however
difficult it is, even if there seems to be an easier path to take.
You need to have a plan,
you need to have a vision as to what you want to do, but above that,
you actually need to have determination to see it through.
There's a streak of public service that's in me,
it comes from my parents.
I think it's important that people give something back, I think that's
what makes our country strong, it makes our communities strong.
I see it in my local communities -
people coming together for the general good.
As Prime Minister, I have the opportunity
to deliver the change that people want,
the change that I think people voted for back on June 23rd.
Making sure that we have a government that is on the side
of ordinary working-class people.
That we can ensure that we're not just getting the right deal for
Britain abroad, we're also getting a better deal for people here.
We're going to deliver on Brexit.
It won't be straightforward and we can't be rushed,
but we will deliver on it.
We have the fifth largest economy in the world,
employment is at a record high.
Last year we were the second fastest growing major economy in the world,
so there are real fundamental strengths to the British economy.
I think there are opportunities for us to be trading
around the world in a way that we haven't been able to do up to now,
forging new relationships,
new partnerships with other countries around the world.
Britain is a country which is playing its role
on a world stage, taking the opportunities that being
a bold and confident and outward-looking nation provide.
But crucially, that we are a great meritocracy.
What should determine how you get on in life should be
your hard work and your talents,
not where you were born or who your parents were,
what god you worship or not,
or whether you're a man or a woman, black or white, straight or gay.
That's what I believe in, that's my plan for Britain,
and together we can build a stronger, fairer, better Britain.
