British Prime Minister Theresa May promised to deliver a ‘successful’ exit from the European Union, strengthen Britain's economy and build a ‘fairer society for everyone,’ in a new year's message on Sunday.
May said 2017 had been a ‘year of progress’ for Britain, in which she had triggered two years of formal Brexit negotiations in March.
Whether people voted for or against Brexit in the referendum in June 2016, ‘most people just want the government to get on and deliver a good Brexit, and that's exactly what we are doing,’ she said.
‘Making a success of Brexit is crucial, but it will not be the limit of our ambitions.
‘We also have to carry on making a difference here and now on the issues that matter to people's daily lives,’ May said.
She promised ‘a balanced approach to government spending, so we get our debt falling, but can also invest in the things that matter - our schools, our police and our precious NHS [National Health Service].’ ‘I believe 2018 can be a year of renewed confidence and pride in our country,’ May said.
‘A year in which we continue to make good progress towards a successful Brexit deal, an economy that's fit for the future, and a stronger and fairer society for everyone.’
