Flanked by Sarah Brown the Prime Minister made a stuttering start to his resignation speech in Downing Street yesterday evening.
In this short speech he professed no love for the trappings of being Prime Minister, but he noted that it was always a privilege to serve.
Speaking quickly and with his customary notes he made a special thank you to the troops serving overseas. With his staff observing from a distance he thanked all for their help and assistance before making his way to the Palace to speak with the Queen.
“Thank you and goodbye.”
As a goodbye speech it was exemplary. Short and to the point.
