Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn denounced Boris Johnson’s new government as the “the most hard-right cabinet I have ever seen,” during a rally in London’s Parliament Square on Thursday, on the Prime Minister’s first day in office.
Hundreds of people attended the rally, where Corbyn said that with Johnson’s new government, there was “no plan to deal with Brexit. There is no plan to deal with the crisis in public services all across Britain.”
“What is very clear from his leadership’s campaign and the contest he had with Jeremy Hunt is that they do believe in taxation. They do believe in reducing taxation for the one percent, for the very richest,” Corbyn added.
Corbyn went on to say Johnson’s new government “was a cabinet united only in its determination to protect the inequalities and injustice and lack of opportunities in left behind working class opportunities all across Britain.”
“In reality the vote we need is a vote of the people both to reject Brexit and to elect a Labour government for the future,” Corbyn continued.
The new Prime Minister of the UK Boris Johnson vowed to leave the EU on October 31st without any ‘ifs or buts’, during his first official speech in office.
Johnson served two terms as Mayor of London from 2008 to 2016, and as Foreign Secretary between 2016 and 2018, during which time he heavily campaigned in favour of Brexit.
