Truss shakes hands with Queen as she official takes over as PM

Staff and aides gathered in Downing Street to hear the new PM give her first speech

Liz Truss is giving her first Downing Street speech and will start appointing the Cabinet tonight after officially becoming Britain’s 56th Prime Minister.

The newly-installed PM will take to a podium outside the famous black door after returning to London from the Queen’s Balmoral residence in Scotland – where the transfer of power happened. 

How the day of political drama is unfolding 

7.30am: Boris Johnson gave his final speech as PM in Downing Street.

11.20am: Mr Johnson and wife Carrie had an audience with the Queen who formally accepted his resignation.

Noon: The now-former PM and Carrie left Balmoral.

12.30pm: Liz Truss arrived at Balmoral where she saw the Queen, and ‘kissed hands’ on forming a new administration.

4.40pm: Liz Truss is due to make her first speech as PM in Downing Street.   

Ministers and MPs had gathered outside as Ms Truss’s convoy weaved through the roads of the capital. 

But there was confusion as aides took the podium indoors when the weather intervened – only to bring it out again as the heavy shower passed. 

Ms Truss will have little time to celebrate as she moves to appoint her Cabinet and thrash out plans for curbing soaring energy bills.

She is expected to cap the typical household bill at £2,500 a year – with costs further offset by keeping the £400 handout that had already been committed.

That would leave the level only slightly higher than the £1,900 existing cap, and a thousand pounds below the figure it was due to hit next month.

There had been speculation that the policy – estimated to cost between £90billion and £130billion – would be added to future bills.

However, it is now expected to be added to government borrowing. 

Boris Johnson – accompanied by wife Carrie – made his own trip to Balmoral for a final 40-minute audience with the Queen. A statement from Buckingham Palace said the monarch had been ‘graciously pleased’ to accept. 

Ms Truss had taken a separate flight north to see the Queen and be asked to form a new government. To add to the drama the plane carrying her and husband Hugh O’Leary was left circling above Aberdeen airport for around 20 minutes due to fog, before finally landing.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: ‘The Queen received in audience The Right Honourable Elizabeth Truss MP today and requested her to form a new administration. Ms Truss accepted Her Majesty’s offer and kissed hands upon her appointment as Prime Minister and First Lord of the Treasury.’

Ms Truss’s Twitter profile was swiftly updated to include her new status. 

She had been due to deliver her first speech at Downing Street around 4pm, but that has already been pushed back at least 40 minutes because of weather delays.

Ms Truss will have been getting crucial security briefings, and writing her ‘letter of last resort’ to submarine captains carrying the UK’s nuclear deterrent – telling them what to do in case the government is destroyed.   

Cabinet appointments are expected to start after the speech, although the key posts seem to be decided.

Kwasi Kwarteng looks nailed on for Chancellor, James Cleverly has been lined up for Foreign Secretary, and Attorney General Suella Braverman could become Home Secretary. 

Ms Truss’s close friend Therese Coffey is earmarked as Health Secretary and deputy PM.

However, reshuffles are rarely straightforward and the Northern Ireland, Education and Transport roles are believed to be causing trouble. Iain Duncan Smith has revealed he turned down an unspecified job.  

Mr Johnson swept out of Downing Street for the final time early this morning with a typically boisterous and classically allusive address to the nation.

Watched by MPs, aides and allies as he spoke on the steps of No10, the outgoing PM put a brave face on his departure saying ‘this is it, folks’.

After walking out of the famous black door with wife Carrie, he pointed out he ‘got Brexit done’ and oversaw the ‘fastest vaccine rollout’ during near three-year stint.

He delivered a stark message that Britain must continue supporting Ukraine against Vladimir Putin’s aggression, despite the economic pain caused by his ‘blackmail’ on gas prices.

And in a barb at MPs for dramatically ousting him, Mr Johnson said: ‘The baton will be handed over in what has unexpectedly turned out to be a relay race. They changed the rules halfway through, but never mind that now.’ 

Mr Johnson also sparked laughter by comparing himself to a ‘booster rocket’ that was being jettisoned, suggesting he would keep out of the way in a remote part of the Pacific Ocean.    

‘I will be offering this government nothing but the most fervent support,’ he said. ‘We will get through it, we will come out stronger the other side… it is time for us all to get behind Liz Truss.’ 

In other developments on a day of high drama in British politics:

  • Ms Truss is planning to freeze energy bills for homes and businesses for two years in a huge £100billion bailout to ease the cost-of-living crisis;
  • The incoming PM is putting the final touches to her Cabinet that should be appointed this evening;
  • Nadine Dorries has resigned as Culture Secretary and will be elevated to the House of Lords, triggering an early by-election test for the new premier.

Truss draws up £100bn plan to freeze energy bills for homes and businesses

Liz Truss’ ministers are locked in talks with energy bosses over a £100billion plan to ‘freeze’ bills for homes and businesses for two years — with newly appointed Prime Minister set to use her speech outside No.10 later today to launch a ‘100 day policy blitz’.

The new Tory leader, who succeeds Boris Johnson as Prime Minister today, will freeze energy bills, slash taxes and shake up the NHS in a ‘shock and awe’ bid to stamp her authority on government.

The quick decisions will be made in the attempt to unite her warring party and decisively dealing with the cost of living crisis.

Her ministers were last night locked in talks with energy bosses to thrash out details of a ‘freeze’ in bills that could last two years and cost £100billion — and could be announced by Thursday.

As part of her energy plan, the incoming Prime Minister is understood to be considering lifting the ban on fracking and expanding North Sea gas extraction to boost home supplies.

Miss Truss was confirmed as leader of the Conservative Party yesterday after defeating Rishi Sunak 57:43 in a vote by members.

In her acceptance speech she vowed to ‘deliver, deliver, deliver’.

She added: ‘I will deliver a bold plan to cut taxes and grow our economy. I will deliver on the energy bills crisis, dealing with people’s energy bills but also dealing with the long-term issues we have on energy supply. And I will deliver on the National Health Service.’

In his speech, Mr Johnson said Putin was ‘utterly deluded’ if he thought he could succeed by ‘blackmailing and bullying’ the British public through restricting gas supplies, driving up world prices.

Mr Johnson said: ‘We have and will continue to have that economic strength to give people the cash they need to get through this energy crisis that has been caused by Putin’s vicious war.

‘I know that Liz Truss and this compassionate Conservative government will do everything we can to get people through this crisis and this country will endure it and we will win.’

Mr Johnson said: ‘I’m proud to have discharged the promises I made to my party when you were kind enough to choose me, winning the biggest majority since 1987, the biggest share of the vote since 1979.

‘Delivering Brexit, delivering our manifesto commitments, including, by the way … social care, reforming social care, helping people up and down the country, ensuring that Britain is once again standing tall in the world.

‘Speaking with clarity and authority, from Ukraine to the Aukus pact with America and Australia, because we are one whole and entire United Kingdom, whose diplomat security services and armed forces are so globally admired.

‘And by the way … as I leave, I believe our union is so strong that those who want to break it up, they’ll keep trying, but they will never, ever succeed.’

Mr Johnson said unemployment is down to lows not seen since he was ‘bouncing around on a space hopper’ aged 10.

He said: ‘Looking at what is happening in this country, the changes that are taking place, that is why private sector investment is flooding in – more private sector, more venture capital investment than China itself.

‘More billion pound tech companies sprouting here in the UK than in France, Germany and Israel combined.

‘And, as a result, unemployment as I leave office – unemployment down to lows not seen since I was about 10 years old and bouncing around on a space hopper.’

In a plea for unity from restive MPs, Mr Johnson said if his dog Dilyn and Larry the cat can ‘put behind them their occasional difficulties’, then so can the Tory party.

He said: ‘Thank you to everybody behind me in this building. Thank you to all of you in Government. Thank you everybody who’s helped look after me and my family over the last three years, including Dilyn the dog.

‘I just say to my party if Dilyn and Larry can put behind them their occasional difficulties, then so can the Conservative Party.

‘Above all, thanks to you, to the British people, to the voters, for giving me the chance to serve, all of you who worked so tirelessly together to beat Covid, to put us where we are today.

‘Together, we have laid foundations that will stand the test of time, whether by taking back control of our laws or putting in vital new infrastructure, great solid masonry on which we will continue to build together, paving the path of prosperity now and for future generations.

Who was Cincinnatus? 

Boris Johnson is a classics scholar who often litters his speeches with Ancient Greek and Roman references.

So the reference in his farewell address to emulating Roman statesman Cincinnatus by returning to his ‘plough’ will be pored over.

Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus lived in the 5th century BC, and is famous for being appointed emergency dictator of Rome to repel an invasion.

After achieving that in a single day, he almost immediately gave up power and returned to live quietly on his farm.

However, notably there is a disputed second chapter in the story of Cincinnatus – where he is said to have returned to office some years later to counter the ambitions of Spurius Maelius. 

Again, having achieved this goal Cincinnatus went meekly back to his farm. 

Although many experts regard this as historical embellishment, it could still be a hint at Mr Johnson’s hopes for a comeback.  

‘I will be supporting Liz Truss and the new government every step of the way.’

He told Conservative colleagues ‘it’s time for politics to be over, folks’.

‘This is a tough time for the economy. This is a tough time for families up and down the country,’ he said.

‘We can and we will get through it, and we will come out stronger the other side.

‘But I say to my fellow Conservatives, it’s time for politics to be over, folks.

‘It’s time for us all to get behind Liz Truss and her team, and her programme, and deliver for the people of this country. Because that is what the people of this country want. That’s what they need. And that’s what they deserve.’

Amid warm applause, Mr Johnson shook hands with some of the crowd – which included current and former Cabinet ministers, as well as Jacob Rees-Mogg with one of his sons – before getting into a government car with Carrie and their two children. 

Among those present was ultra-loyalist Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries. She has been asked to stay on by Liz Truss but decided to return to the backbenches. There is speculation she will handed a peerage.

In her resignation letter to outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson, she said: ‘I am humbled that your successor has extended her confidence in me by asking me to remain as Secretary of State for DCMS.’

But she said ‘after much reflection’ she had decided to step down, adding: ‘I have personally assured our soon-to-be prime minister that I will be better-placed to support her from outside of the Cabinet.’

Tory MPs heaped praise on Mr Johnson after his valedictory speech, but Labour piled in with invective. 

Shadow foreign secretary David Lammy said Mr Johnson listed ‘imaginary achievements’ in his resignation speech, describing him as ‘the worst Prime Minister of the modern era’.

‘Boris Johnson standing outside Downing Street listing imaginary achievements in a desperate attempt to claim a legacy is not going to fool anyone,’ Mr Lammy tweeted.

‘Good riddance to the worst Prime Minister of the modern era.’

What is the ‘kissing of the hands’?  

The ‘kissing of the hands’ ceremony refers to the formal appointment of the Prime Minister by the Queen. 

During Liz Truss’s meeting with Her Majesty today, she will have asked her if she is able to form a government in her name.

Whilst under previous monarchs the PM would have been actually required to kiss the sovereign’s hand to show their loyalty to the sovereign, this is no longer the case.

However, the meeting is still referred to in the Court Circular – the official record of the monarch’s engagements – as ‘kissing hands’, as with Buckingham Palace’s statement today. 

Today’s meeting at Balmoral was the first time in recent decades that the kissing of the hands’ happened outside London or Windsor.

In 1952, the Queen kissed hands with Winston Churchill at Heathrow when she returned from Africa after her father King George VI died.

Before that, the sudden resignation of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman meant the ceremony to appoint Herbert Asquith was carried out in a hotel room in Biarritz, France.

Boris hails legacy in final speech as PM 

Boris Johnson hailed his legacy today as he delivered a typically bullish farewell speech before heading to hand his resignation to the Queen.

Watched by MPs, aides and allies as he spoke on the steps of No10, the outgoing PM put a brave face on his departure saying ‘this is it, folks’.

After walking out of the famous black door with wife Carrie, he pointed out he ‘got Brexit done’ and oversaw the ‘fastest vaccine rollout’ during near three-year stint.

He delivered a stark message that Britain must continue supporting Ukraine against Vladimir Putin’s aggression, despite the economic pain caused by his ‘blackmail’ on gas prices.

And in a barb at MPs for dramatically ousting him, Mr Johnson said: ‘The baton will be handed over in what has unexpectedly turned out to be a relay race. They changed the rules halfway through, but never mind that now.’

Mr Johnson also sparked laughter by comparing himself to a ‘booster rocket’ that was being jettisoned, suggesting he would keep out of the way on a remote island in the Pacific Ocean.

In a hint at his own future plans, Mr Johnson said he would emulate Cincinnatus, a Roman statesman who battled against invasion before returning to his farm.

In his farewell speech, he said: ‘On the subject of bouncing around in future careers, let me say that I am now like one of those booster rockets that has fulfilled its function.

‘I will now be gently re-entering the atmosphere and splashing down invisibly in some remote and obscure corner of the Pacific.

‘Like Cincinnatus, I am returning to my plough and I will be offering this Government nothing but the most fervent support.’

The former premier is likely to skip the Conservative Party conference this autumn as he tries to keep a low profile after stepping down as Prime Minister.

While supporters hope he could stage a comeback, he is instead planning to spend the coming weeks ‘representing his constituents’ and backing Liz Truss.

A Whitehall source said he would now be a ‘private individual’ and would ‘probably not’ attend his party’s annual autumn gathering in Birmingham next month.

The outgoing Prime Minister is likely to join the lucrative speaking circuit and write his memoirs but will resist making high-profile political interventions, sources said. 

Will Walden, who was Mr Johnson’s communications chief when he was mayor of London, told LBC radio yesterday he expected he would ‘disappear off to make a lot of money’.

Amid the speculation about Mr Johnson’s future, his wife Carrie shared a touching tribute to his time as Prime Minister as they prepared to leave Downing Street with their children.

She posted a photo on Instagram that showed her, Mr Johnson and their children Wilfred, two, and Romy, nine months, walking through the door of No 10 together for the last time.

Wearing a long white dress, she carried Romy as Wilfred did a kick with his left leg while holding his parents’ hands. 

Alongside the photo, Mrs Johnson, 33, wrote a short post reflecting on her children’s happy time at both No 10 and Chequers. The family will stand outside No 10 today to watch Mr Johnson make his farewell speech.

Mr Walden also told ITV ‘not many’ MPs would like Mr Johnson to stage a comeback as there is only ‘a small coterie of very, very loyal Boris acolytes’, and predicted it would have to be a ‘strange set of circumstances’ for him to return.

But at the weekend, Mr Johnson’s former chief of staff in No 10 Lord Udny-Lister said Tory MPs would come to regret ousting him and that he might be tempted to run for leader again in future.

The Queen, 96, is pictured leaning on a walking stick as she meets new Prime Minister Liz Truss from the comfort of Balmoral rather than make 1,000-mile round trip amid health fears 

The Queen used a walking stick as she welcomed Liz Truss at an audience at Balmoral Castle in Scotland today, where she invited the newly-elected leader of the Conservative Party to become prime minister.

The historic audience was the first time that the 96-year-old monarch, who has faced ongoing mobility issues, has carried out the key duty at her retreat in Aberdeenshire, rather than at Buckingham Palace. Today is also the first time Her Majesty has been pictured since she was seen arriving at the estate on July 21 for her summer holiday. 

The Queen has been suffering from episodic mobility problems since last autumn, and the decision was taken last week to ask the outgoing and incoming prime ministers to make the 1,000-mile round-trip to see the Queen. 

A statement from Buckingham Palace issued at 1pm today said: ‘The Queen received in Audience The Right Honourable Elizabeth Truss MP today and requested her to form a new Administration. Ms Truss accepted Her Majesty’s offer and kissed hands upon her appointment as Prime Minister and First Lord of the Treasury.’

The Court Circular normally records that ‘the Prime Minister kissed hands on appointment’. However, this is not literally the case, and it is usually a handshake – as it was with Miss Truss today. 

The meeting took place in Balmoral’s green-carpeted Drawing Room, which has matching green sofas, a leaf-patterned fabric chair, an open fire and a number of equine-themed antique paintings on the walls. 

Miss Truss, 47, has become the third female prime minister in British history – following in the footsteps of Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May – with all three serving during the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

Earlier, Miss Truss swept onto the Queen’s private Scottish estate in a chauffeur-driven car with her husband Hugh O’Leary, one day after being declared the winner in the Tory leadership contest.

Boris Johnson’s farewell speech outside No10 in full 

Well this is it folks.

Thanks to all of you for coming out so early this morning.

In only a couple of hours from now I will be in Balmoral to see Her Majesty the Queen, and the torch will finally be passed to a new Conservative leader.

The baton will be handed over in what has unexpectedly turned out to be a relay race. They changed the rules half-way through but never mind that now.

And through that lacquered black door a new Prime Minister will shortly go to meet a fantastic group of public servants.

The people who got Brexit done. The people who delivered the fastest vaccine roll out in Europe. 

And never forget – 70 per cent of the entire population got a dose within 6 months, faster than any comparable country.

That is government for you – that’s this Conservative government.

The people who organised those prompt early supplies of weapons to the heroic Ukrainian armed forces, an action that may very well have helped change the course of the biggest European war for 80 years.

And because of the speed and urgency of what you did – everybody involved in this government – to get this economy moving again from July last year in spite of all opposition, all the naysayers, we have and will continue to have that economic strength to give people the cash they need to get through this energy crisis that has been caused by Putin’s vicious war.

And I know that Liz Truss and this compassionate Conservative government will do everything we can to get people through this crisis.

And this country will endure it and we will win.

And if Putin thinks that he can succeed by blackmailing or bullying the British people then he is utterly deluded.

‘The reason we will have those funds now and in the future is because we Conservatives understand the vital symmetry between government action and free market capitalist private sector enterprise.

We are delivering on those huge manifesto commitments, making streets safer – neighbourhood crime down 38 per cent in the last three years, 13,790 more police on the streets.

Building more hospitals – and yes we will have 50,000 more nurses by the end of this parliament and 40 more hospitals by the end of the decade.

Putting record funding into our schools and into teachers’ pay.

Giving everyone over 18 a lifetime skills guarantee so they can keep upskilling throughout their lives.

Three new high speed rail lines including northern powerhouse rail, colossal road programmes from the Pennines to Cornwall, the roll-out of gigabit broadband up over the last three years, since you were kind enough to elect me, up from 7 per cent of our country’s premises having gigabit broadband to 70 per cent today.

And we are of course providing the short and the long term solutions for our energy needs.

And not just using more of our own domestic hydrocarbons but going up by 2030 to 50 GW of wind power, that is half this country’s energy electricity needs from offshore wind alone, a new nuclear reactor every year.

And looking at what is happening in this country, the changes that are taking place, that is why the private sector is investing more venture capital investment than China itself.

More billion pound tech companies sprouting here than in France, Germany and Israel combined.

And as a result unemployment as I leave office, down to lows not seen since I was about ten years old and bouncing around on a space hopper.

And on the subject of bouncing around and future careers, let me say that I am now like one of those booster rockets that has fulfilled its function. 

And I will now be gently re-entering the atmosphere and splashing down invisibly in some remote and obscure corner of the pacific.

And like Cincinnatus I am returning to my plough, and I will be offering this government nothing but the most fervent support.

This is a tough time for the economy. This is a tough time for families up and down the country.

We can and we will get through it and we will come out stronger the other side but I say to my fellow Conservatives it is time for the politics to be over folks.

And it’s time for us all to get behind Liz Truss and her programme, and deliver for the people of this country.

Because that is what the people of this country want, that’s what they need and that’s what they deserve.

I am proud to have discharged the promises I made my party when you were kind enough to choose me, winning the biggest majority since 1987 and the biggest share of the vote since 1979.

Delivering Brexit. Delivering our manifesto commitments – including social care – helping people up and down the country ensuring that Britain is once again standing tall in the world.

Speaking with clarity and authority from Ukraine to the Aukus pact with America and Australia.

Because we are one whole and entire United Kingdom whose diplomats, security services and armed forces are so globally admired, and as I leave I believe our union is so strong that those who want to break it up, will keep trying but they will never ever succeed.

Thank you to everyone behind me in this building for looking after me and my family over the last three years so well including Dilyn, the dog. And if Dilyn and Larry can put behind them their occasional difficulties, then so can the Conservative party.

And above all thanks to you, the British people, to the voters for giving me the chance to serve, all of you who worked so tirelessly together to beat covid to put us where we are today.

Together we have laid foundations that will stand the test of time, whether by taking back control of our laws or putting in vital new infrastructure – great solid masonry on which we will continue to build together, paving the path of prosperity now & for future generations.

And I will be supporting Liz Truss and our new government every step of the way.

Thank you all very much.
