WATCH: PM sends video to Mike Starkie
Prime minster Boris Johnson has sent a video to the newly switched Conservative Mayor Mike Starkie.
In the video Mr Johnson says “This is Boris Johnson, just saying a big big thank you to Mike Starkie thanks for joining our party you won’t regret it
The PM continued “We are going to get massive things done, and we’re going to get big, big, nuclear things done as well, so all the best and many thanks.”
Trudy Harrison shared the video on her Facebook adding: “The Prime Minister is clearly thrilled to have Mayor Mike Starkie on the team, as demonstrated in this little clip, and I was thrilled to have nuclear power mentioned twice in a week from the very top.
“Our team of positive people, who want to make huge progress in Copeland is growing. Being a negative ninny is never a great route to success in my experience.
“So come on West Cumbria, come together and ensure that we grasp the moment of radical policy change, levelling up, global environmental need and sheer political strength in numbers to actually get stuff done. “
