Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s Speech In Full

by | 27th, June 2007

NICK Robinson, BBC TV’s politics pundit, is watching Gordon Brown :

He was hesitant, he was nervy as he got out of the car, unsure where to stand even. We got used, over the years to Tony Blair, a man who loves the cameras. The media were shouting at Brown during the speech they wanted the famous Number 10 in their shots. But that’s not Gordon Brown’s style.

He delivered his words with confidence, but his nervousness was very, very evident.

Says Gordon:

I have just accepted the invitation of Her Majesty the Queen to form a government.

This will be a new government with new priorities and I have been privileged to have been granted the great opportunity to serve my country and at all times I will be strong in purpose, steadfast in will, resolute in action in the service of what matters to the British people meeting the concerns and aspirations of our whole country.

I grew up in the town that I now represent in Parliament. I went to the local school. I wouldn’t be standing here without the opportunities that I received there.

And I want the best of chances for everyone. That is my mission that if we can fulfil the potential and realise the talents of all our people, then I am absolutely sure that Britain can be the great global success story of this century.
