Interview with the Secretary of State For Industry

By South China Morning Post at 9:37 AM 5/31/2020 (PDT)

What are your thoughts on the PM's death?

This is an incredibly tragic time for the United Kingdom and for me personally, seeing as Ms. Thatcher was a long-term political friend and ally of mine within the Conservative party. It is also a time for great change and reform, and the dawn of a new era worldwide.

What do you mean that it is “the dawn of a new era”?

Britain is presently in a very precarious position socially, politically, and economically. This is a tragic time but also a time for great change and reform to help aid a fractured nation.

What do you hope Britain will be able to do in order to change and move on from being a fractured nation?

I think a lot of reform is necessary in many sectors of the government, including repairing the increasingly high interest and inflation rates, reducing violent interactions in Northern Ireland, and finding a new long-term leader.
