Three issues Boris Johnson’s new government must tackle – none of which is Brexit

Press/Media: Articles in 'The Conversation'

Description

Now that Boris Johnson has moved into 10 Downing Street and appointed his new cabinet, the real work begins. He’s got a lot on his plate, not least of which is Brexit. But leaving the EU should not be his sole focus if he wishes to re-engage with those disaffected voters he will need to bring on side in a future general election.

Brexit may be a mess but, when it comes to Britain’s economy, Johnson has inherited a positive record. Employment at record levels and unemployment at the lowest rate for a generation. The nation’s finances under control. Low interest rates. Real wages starting to rise. Low inflation.
