    Tonight we are leaving the European Union

    For many people this is an astonishing moment of hope, a moment they thought would never come

    And there are many of course who feel a sense of anxiety and loss

    And then of course there is a third group – perhaps the biggest – who had started to worry that the whole political wrangle would never come to an end

    I understand all those feelings, and our job as the government – my job – is to bring this country together now and take us forward

    And the most important thing to say tonight is that this is not an end but a beginning

    This is the moment when the dawn breaks and the curtain goes up on a new act in our great national drama

    And yes it is partly about using these new powers – this recaptured sovereignty – to deliver the changes people voted for

    Whether that is by controlling immigration or creating freeports or liberating our fishing industry or doing free trade deals

    Or simply making our laws and rules for the benefit of the people of this country

    And of course I think that is the right and healthy and democratic thing to do

    Because for all its strengths and for all its admirable qualities, the EU has evolved over 50 years in a direction that no longer suits this country

    And that is a judgment that you, the people, have now confirmed at the polls

    Not once but twice

    And yet this moment is far bigger than that

    It is not just about some legal extrication

    It is potentially a moment of real national renewal and change

    This is the dawn of a new era in which we no longer accept that your life chances – your family’s life chances - should depend on which part of the country you grow up in

    This is the moment when we really begin to unite and level up

    Defeating crime, transforming our NHS, and with better education, with superb technology

    And with the biggest revival of our infrastructure since the Victorians

    We will spread hope and opportunity to every part of the UK

    And if we can get this right I believe that with every month that goes by we will grow in confidence not just at home but abroad

    And in our diplomacy, in our fight against climate change,

    In our campaigns for human rights or female education or free trade we will rediscover muscles that we have not used for decades

    The power of independent thought and action

    Not because we want to detract from anything done by our EU friends – of course not

    We want this to be the beginning of a new era of friendly cooperation

    Between the EU and an energetic Britain.

    A Britain that is simultaneously a great European power

    And truly global in our range and ambitions

    And when I look at this country’s incredible assets

    Our scientists, our engineers, our world-leading universities, our armed forces

    When I look at the potential of this country waiting to be unleashed

    I know that we can turn this opportunity into a stunning success

    And whatever the bumps in the road ahead

    I know that we will succeed

    We have obeyed the people

    We have taken back the tools of self-government

    Now is the time to use those tools to unleash the full potential of this brilliant country and to make better the lives of everyone in every corner of our United Kingdom.

    If only he was half as good a politican as he is a bullshitter, he wouldn't have to hide in fridges.

    That's untrue they went in there to continue their conversations after a rude journalist kept barracking them.

    The journalist wanted to ask a question, that's what journalists usually do. Boris avoids being asked a question, so he doesn't have to answer, not that he ever does.

    Absolutely fantastic - at long, long last - just as Boris Johnson promised. Now we can move forward without having to request permission from 27 other countries - already companies are starting to expand, businesses are sighing with relief over having less paperwork to do, the pound is strong against the Euro and the banks are opening additional branches. The NHS has already received additional funding with more to come, the HS2 is to go ahead opening up the North of England etc.,more investment into the UK. While other countries are now preparing trading with the UK once again. There will more than likely be a lot of advantages seen to begin with, followed by some hard graft before the country settles down for its new future. The EU will weaken further due to Global markets, and its inability to move fast enough to take advantage of changes that will occur. We have had many congratulations passed to us from across the World, and regrets among many in that their country is not as democratic as the UK.

    You need to stop reading The Beano. Do you have a source regarding banks opening new branches please?

    He/she is incorrect unless you go back to JP Morgan in 2018 in the US opening 400 branches, so I'll give you that.

    But as memory serves me right, never saw anything in the Beano and I read every copy as well you know.
