Boris boasts he's got 'GUTS to drive change' unlike his 'dithering' predecessors.

BORIS Johnson on Wednesday vowed to better the lives of millions of "left-behind" Brits as he mapped out his vision for levelling up.

The bullish PM insisted he had the "guts" to drive through radical changes unlike his "dithering" predecessors David Cameron and Theresa May.

In a gag-laden speech the upbeat Tory leader tried to flesh out his flagship mission to throw an arm around the country's poorest areas.

The only new policy announcement was a £3,000 cash handout for teachers to recruit and retain more for schools in deprived areas.

On his bid to give kids in Red Wall areas the same chances as the south, Mr Johnson hailed the fighting spirit of underdog tennis champ Emma Radacanu, the England football team and our Olympic heroes.

The PM thundered to a packed hall: "That is the spirit that is the same across this country.
