Boris Johnson congratulated Brexit Britain for a number of “successes” one year after the end of the UK-EU transition period.
On Friday night, the Prime Minister listed all the new policies initiated over the year that Brexit made possible.
He said: “A year ago today, we entered our new relationship with the EU through the world’s biggest ever zero-tariff, zero-quota free trade deal: the UK-EU Trade and Co-operation Agreement.
“That was just the start. Our mission since has been to maximise the benefits of Brexit so that we can thrive as a modern, dynamic and independent country.
“We’ve replaced free movement with a points-based immigration system.
“We’ve secured the fastest vaccine rollout anywhere in Europe last year by avoiding sluggish EU processes.
“And from Singapore to Switzerland, we’ve negotiated ambitious free trade deals to boost jobs and investment here at home.”
