I’m writing this column on Friday morning, December 13, the day after the general election and Boris Johnson’s historic win.

I'm, of course, very pleased the people of the UK have rejected Labours brand of socialism and Marxism which would have brought our country to the brink of destruction.

The union of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales will be kept in tact as the prime minister has ruled out a second referendum for Scottish Independence. Brexit will be done soon, executing the will of the people who voted to leave in the 2016 referendum.

Now our country can move forward. We no longer have the uncertainty that a hung parliament would have given us. The government can now throw its energy behind the UK, investing in the NHS, law and order, defence and education.

We too must move on, Brexit and indeed this election has been highly divisive, it has pitched communities against each other, divided families and brought out hate and fear towards and amongst our ethnic minorities.

In just over three weeks will be embracing a new year, indeed a new decade. Let us all work together to put the past behind us. Show the people that we can all work together harmoniously. Let's bring to an end to the terrible slaughter of our youngsters through the scourge of knife crime and drugs. Let us build a community filled with hope and vision. I sign off wishing you all a very merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a great holiday. I wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
