There are times in the life of a nation
when the choices we make define the character of our country,
times when people stand up and demand real, significant change.
This is one of those moments.
As we leave the European Union,
we have the chance to shape a brighter future for Britain
and I believe we have the vision and the plan to do it.
That is why I have set out my plan for Britain.
It is a plan to make the most of the opportunities ahead -
a plan to make Britain stronger, fairer, more united
and more outward-looking than ever before.
It is a plan for a global Britain.
We will forge a new deep and special partnership with the European Union
that gives control of our borders,
while trading beyond Europe, shaping decisions across the globe
and working to make the world a safer place.
It is a plan for a stronger economy
where everyone plays by the same rules.
So we will fix broken consumer markets,
so people keep more of their money,
and crack down on individuals who and businesses who abuse the system,
and we will deliver a modern industrial strategy
that spreads prosperity and opportunity across the country,
while continuing to bring the deficit down,
so we live within our means.
It is a plan for a fairer society
where success is based on merit, not privilege.
So we will provide a good school place for every child,
deliver more affordable homes
and put record investment into the NHS
and we will make sure we have a welfare system that rewards work
as well as tackling historic injustices,
like racial and gender discrimination.
And it is a plan for a united nation
that our children and grandchildren are proud to call home.
We will strengthen and protect the precious union
of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland,
while acting for the benefit
of all the cities, towns, villages and communities across the country.
That is my plan for Britain -
a plan to get the right deal for Britain abroad
and a better deal for ordinary working people at home,
to make the most of the opportunities ahead
and to make Britain a country that works for everyone,
not just a privileged few.
As a reality TV star, Donald Trump may have been ignorable.
But he is now unignorable, he comes to us 24/7.
