UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is organizing a party on Friday for cabinet ministers and other senior officials at Brexit’s Downing Street residence, The Guardian reported on Friday.
It is not yet clear whether the ex-British Prime Minister Teresa May will be invited to the party, who worked on Brexit for three years, until her resignation. Johnson has repeatedly criticized May for what decisions she made in the Brexit process.
At the reception at the premier, guests will be served dishes of British products: Shropshire Blue biscuits with English blue cheese, lamb fillet, English shepherd’s pie with cheddar and pickles, chicken skewers, as well as roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and horseradish sauce. Guests can enjoy a meal with British sparkling wine.
It is expected that an hour before Britain leaves the EU, Johnson will address the British subjects.
Downing Street has already circulated excerpts from Johnson’s statement. “This is the moment when dawn comes and the curtain rises to mark a new act,” Johnson will say.
The building on Downing Street will be highlighted in the colors of the British flag, and on the facade there will be a projection of a clock counting down the time to Brexit.
Red and blue lights will illuminate the building of the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Defense of Great Britain, as well as the management of Her Majesty’s taxes and customs duties.
In Brussels, by contrast, no events are expected regarding Brexit. European officials at various levels have repeatedly regretted Britain’s decision to withdraw from the EU.
Great Britain will officially leave the EU at 23:00 London time on January 31.
