@ Boris Johnson

As well as the official account, Boris Johnson has his own personal account

It was fantastic to meet officers at different stages of their careers to talk about why they joined the police.

If you think you could make a difference and would like to know more about a career in the police, visit: http://www.joiningthepolice.co.uk

It was a pleasure to welcome three police officers to Downing Street where I asked them why they decided to join the force.

I’m delighted that we have now signed up 13,790 new officers, recruited to help keep you safer on our streets.

Update: Next week, we’re deploying up to 225 Canadian soldiers as part of Operation UNIFIER – Canada’s military training and capacity building mission in Ukraine. They’ll be heading to the United Kingdom, where they’ll train recruits from the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Proud to support #Farm24 and pay tribute to the tireless work of our farmers who keep us all fed.

We will always back British farmers and we're committed to boosting the industry so that we grow and eat more home-grown produce here in the UK.

Very humbling to be in Lisburn today remembering the extraordinary life of David Trimble. His principled determination to forge a better future for all marks him out as one of the giants of our history.

My thoughts remain with Daphne and the whole Trimble family.

Earlier this year the UK and our allies pledged to address Putin’s threat to food security and end the grain blockade of Ukraine.

This is a welcome first step towards that outcome. I want to thank the @UN and Turkey for securing this agreement.

A moment: The Razoni making her way out of the port of Odesa with 26,000 tonnes of Ukrainian grain.

A small but significant start .

If you’ve had a cough for three weeks or more, it could be a sign of cancer. It’s probably nothing serious, but if it is cancer, finding it early makes it more treatable.

Your NHS wants to see you. Contact your GP practice. http://nhs.uk/cancersymptoms #HelpUsHelpYou

Lung cancer is the biggest cause of cancer deaths in England.

If you have any of the symptoms flagged by the NHS, please come forward and get checked. The earlier cancer is diagnosed, the better.

Football has come home! A stunning victory by the @Lionesses.

Huge congratulations to Sarina, Leah and the whole team. Football pitches across the country will be filled as never before by girls and women inspired by your triumph.

Saddened to hear of the death of Sir Christopher Meyer.

He was a dedicated public servant throughout his career and devoted his life to international diplomacy.

My thoughts are with his wife Catherine and his loved ones.

The venues are ready.

The volunteers are ready.

The people of Birmingham are ready.

The 2022 Commonwealth Games are finally here.

More than 100,000 Ukrainians have arrived in the UK through our Family Scheme and Homes for Ukraine sponsorship scheme.

Thank you to everyone across the UK who has opened their home to those forced to flee Ukraine due to Putin's barbarism.

Ten years on, the legacy of London 2012 continues to live on.

It lives on in the vibrancy of the East London communities where the Games were based, and the ongoing success of our outstanding @TeamGB athletes.

Today I met the founders of @BioNTech_Group and thanked them on behalf of the country for their critically important work in fighting the pandemic.

Together, we can build on the success & collaboration of our Covid vaccine programme to tackle other big public health challenges.

On to Wembley! A fantastic result for Captain @leahcwilliamson and the @Lionesses tonight against Sweden.

Come on England, bring it home 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

It was an honour to present my friend President @ZelenskyyUa with the Winston Churchill Leadership Award today.

Volodymyr’s courage, defiance and dignity – all Churchillian qualities – have moved the hearts of millions and stirred a global wave of solidarity.

Today Prime Minister @BorisJohnson presented President @ZelenskyyUa with the Sir Winston Churchill Leadership Award for incredible courage, defiance and dignity in the face of Putin’s barbaric invasion.

The UK will always #StandWithUkraine 🇬🇧🇺🇦

#ChurchillAward

I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of Lord Trimble earlier today. He was a giant of British and international politics and will be long remembered for his intellect, personal bravery and fierce determination to change politics for the better.

Last week President @ZelenskyyUa and I agreed that wherever Eurovision 2023 is held, it must celebrate the country and people of Ukraine.

As we are now hosts, the UK will honour that pledge directly – and put on a fantastic contest on behalf of our Ukrainian friends.

This week I visited Ukrainian troops being trained by British Armed Forces in North Yorkshire.

The UK is committed to doing all we can to help Ukraine continue to repel Russian aggression.

I welcome today’s announcement of the @UN-brokered deal to get grain out of Ukraine via the Black Sea and end Russia’s blockade.

UK support for @ZelenskyyUA and his people is unwavering, and we’ll continue to bolster Ukrainian defences as they repel Russian aggression.

We're providing £37 billion of support to help families with the cost of living.

Businesses are also helping with our Help for Households campaign, offering new deals and discounts that will provide much needed respite at the checkout.

Incredible news that we've administered 150 MILLION Covid jabs across the UK. 💉

A huge thanks to all the volunteers and NHS who have made this possible.

If you haven't yet, it's is never too late to come forward for your vaccine:

Wishing the very best of luck to the @Lionesses as they face Spain this evening. The country is willing you on to go all the way! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

#WEURO2022

My thanks go to all the firefighters and frontline services who are working incredibly hard to keep us safe on this scorching day. I urge everyone to continue to follow the advice from emergency services – including @LondonFire as they respond to incidents.

One year on from freedom day, I’m proud of what we’ve achieved:

One of the fastest vaccine rollouts and the fastest growing economy in the G7 in 2021.

Which means we can give £1,200 to the 8 million most vulnerable households to support them with the cost of living.

Today Prime Minister @BorisJohnson opened @FIAFarnborough Airshow – an exciting display of the new technologies that are transforming the aerospace industry, creating jobs and growth across the UK ✈️

Our vaccination programme has been one of the fastest and most successful in the world, protecting lives and livelihoods.

Today we've confirmed the next phase in our booster programme to keep our defences strong over autumn and winter.

I know people are worried about rising prices and that’s why we are providing help for households.

Today over 8 million households will start automatically receiving their first £326 Cost of Living payment – part of a £1,200 targeted support package.

Expressed my deepest condolences to Prime Minister @kishida230 this morning following the shocking and senseless assassination of former Prime Minister Abe.

Shinzo Abe was a true friend to the UK, helping to build the warm and thriving relationship our countries share today.

Great news that the economy grew by 0.5% in May – outstripping expectations.

This government has taken action to protect jobs through a challenging 2 years, whilst making record investments in infrastructure, levelling up and ensuring people can get skills they need to progress.

Incredibly sad news about Shinzo Abe.

His global leadership through unchartered times will be remembered by many. My thoughts are with his family, friends and the Japanese people.

The UK stands with you at this dark and sad time.

Utterly appalled and saddened to hear about the despicable attack on Shinzo Abe.

My thoughts are with his family and loved ones.

I spoke to President @ZelenskyyUa earlier to reiterate the UK's unwavering support for Ukraine – we will supply vital defensive aid for as long as it's needed.

Thank you for your friendship Volodymyr, you’re a hero, everybody loves you.

Seventeen years ago, 52 people tragically lost their lives and hundreds were injured during the 7/7 London bombings.

My thoughts are with all those affected, the victims and their families. We will never forget them and the courage shown by Londoners in the face of terrorism.

I want to thank you, the British public, for the immense privilege of serving you as Prime Minister.

I want you to know that from now until my successor is in place, your interests will be served and the government of the country will be carried on.

Updated President @ZelenskyyUa on progress made at @G7 and @NATO last week.

I believe the Ukrainian military can retake territory recently captured by Putin’s forces. The UK remains committed to helping Ukraine defend itself & rebuild.

More UK military aid will arrive soon.

Today UK Ambassador to @NATO @DavidQuarrey signed the Accession Protocols for Sweden & Finland. By joining NATO they will strengthen the collective security of Europe.

As the threat from authoritarian regimes intensifies, NATO stands united in defending freedom & democracy. 🇸🇪🇫🇮

Tomorrow we're delivering the single biggest tax cut in a decade – but we’re also investing record sums in infrastructure, skills and tech to raise productivity across the UK.

That’s the responsible, long-term way to address the cost of living and pave the way for more tax cuts.

Most of us have never known a world without the NHS, and while much has changed in 74 years, one thing has remained constant – the skill, dedication and professionalism of its staff.

To everyone in our NHS, thank you for all you do.

#NHSBirthday

The @WelshGovernment has contributed £35m to our military support for Ukraine, and Welsh families have taken in 3,000 refugees.

Good to talk to @PrifWeinidog just now about how we can continue to work together against Russian aggression.

Diolch, Wales.

I've just spoken to @NicolaSturgeon to herald the success of UK collaboration supporting Ukraine.

I thanked the @ScotGov’s £65 million contribution in upping UK’s military aid to Ukraine to £2.3 billion & efforts to help house 6,000 Ukrainian refugees.

Thank you, Scotland.
