Theresa May’s Brexit Speech: The Transcript
Theresa May:  “A little over six months ago, the British people voted for change. They voted to shape a brighter future for our country. They voted to leave the European Union and embrace the world, and they did so with their eyes open, accepting that the road ahead will be uncertain at times but believing that it leads towards a brighter future for their children and their grandchildren too. And it is the job of this government to deliver it. That means more than negotiating our new relationship with the EU. It means taking the opportunity of this great moment of national change to step back and ask ourselves what kind of country we want to be.
My answer is clear. I want this United Kingdom to emerge from this period of change stronger, fairer, more united and more outward looking than ever before. I want us to be a secure, prosperous, tolerant country. A magnet for international talent and a home to the pioneers and innovators who will shape the world ahead. I want us to be a truly global Britain. The best friend and neighbour to our European partners but a country that reaches beyond the borders of Europe too. A country that goes out into the world to build relationships with old friends and new allies alike. I want Britain to be what we have the potential, talent and ambition to be. A great global trading nation that is respected around the world and strong, confident and united at home.

Words by Transcriber Laura B holly-vector

When I was a kid I thought “Christmas Carols” was something to do with my friend’s mum Auntie Carol (not my real auntie). Carolling didn’t really become a thing to me until one run-up to Christmas when I answered the doorbell and three children older than me started singing in my face.  Terrified, I ran for my parents, who gently explained that this was the great tradition of Christmas carolling and that these industrious singers expected festive food and money.  My parents gave them some loose change and I gave them some Jollof rice out of the fridge.
