Boris Johnson: This is the moment to be ambitious

Version 0 of 10.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said the country must "use this moment" to fix problems that had been highlight by the coronavirus crisis.

In a speech in Dudley, the prime minister set out plans for the UK to "bounce back better" and accelerate £5bn on infrastructure projects.

He said the virus had sped up manifesto plans, including on planning reform.

"Project speed" has been set up with the chancellor, who will outline more detail of the recovery plan next week.

Labour says the government has to have a "laser-like focus" on retaining jobs as the UK emerges from lockdown.

The prime minister loves a big, historical comparison.

He is a keen student of Winston Churchill - and has even written a book about him.

Over the last few days, the comparisons the government has sought to draw have been with former American President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his "New Deal."

As my colleagues at Reality Check point out, the plan set out today is a tiddler compared to what FDR did, and a fair chunk of it is re-announcing what we already knew the government was planning.

But Boris Johnson is attempting to set out in a broader context the government's vision - and his pride in saying he wants to spend a lot to revitalise the economy and haul it out of the doldrums.
