'We can look to the future with optimism' says Cameron

David Cameron has said in his New Year's message that his government are making "tangible progress."

The prime minister said:

We can look to the future with realism and optimism. Realism, because you can't cure problems that were decades in the making overnight. There are no quick fixes and I wouldn't claim otherwise.

But we can be optimistic too because we are making tangible progress. We are doing what's right for our country and what's best for our children's future."

On all the big issues that matter to Britain, we are heading in the right direction and I have the evidence to prove it.

– David Cameron
