A vision for Britain
Today, as we face this critical election for our country, I launch my manifesto for Britain’s future.
A manifesto to see us through Brexit and beyond.
A plan for a stronger, fairer, more prosperous Britain.
A plan to seize the opportunities ahead and to build a country that our children and grandchildren are proud to call home.
It is a detailed programme for government – rooted in the hopes and aspirations of ordinary working people across this land.
But it is more than that. It is a vision for Britain: a portrait of the kind of country I want this nation to be after Brexit as we chart our own way in the world.
For at this defining moment for the United Kingdom – as we embark on this momentous journey for our nation – we have a chance to step back and ask ourselves what kind of country we want to build together.
I believe our United Kingdom can emerge from this period of national change stronger, fairer and more prosperous than ever before.
I believe we can be a country that stands tall in the world and provides leadership on some of the greatest challenges of our time.
And I believe we can – and must – take this opportunity to build a Great Meritocracy here in Britain.
Let me be clear about what that means.
It means making Britain a country where everyone – of whatever background – has the chance to go as far as their talent and their hard work will take them.
A country that asks not where you have come from, but where you are going to.
It means making Britain a country that works, not for the privileged few, but for everyone.
A country where it doesn’t matter where you were born, who your parents are, where you went to school, what your accent sounds like, what god you worship, whether you’re a man or a woman, gay or straight, or black or white.
A country in which all that matters is the talent you have and how hard you’re prepared to work.
That is the kind of Britain I want us to build together.
