  • Appeals for national renewal, unity
  • Sunak resigns after election defeat

Sir Keir Starmer said, “Our work is urgent, and we begin it today” in his first address to the nation as prime minister.

Sir Keir entered Downing Street for the first time as Prime Minister, greeting enthusiastic Labour supporters flying Union, Welsh, and Scottish flags before addressing the country in front of Number 10.

Sir Keir stated, “Weariness in the heart of the nation – a draining away of hope, spirit, and belief in a better future.

“This wound, this lack of trust, can only be healed through actions, not words.” I am aware of this. But we can start now. “Public service is a privilege.

He stated that the country “voted decisively for change, national renewal, and the return of politics to public service.

Sir Keir assured those who did not vote for the Labour Party, “My government will serve you.”

Politics can be a force for good; we shall demonstrate this, he continued.

He remarked, “If I asked you now if you believe Britain will be better for your children, I know too many of you would say no, so my government will fight until you believe again.

Sir Keir appealed for “you all to join this government of service in the mission of national renewal.”

“Our work is urgent, and we will begin it today,” he said amid cheers.

Sir Keir proceeded down Downing Street and greeted his supporters before giving his address.

The Labour leader met with the King in Buckingham Palace after Rishi Sunak resigned following the Conservatives’ worst-ever general election performance.

Sir Keir becomes the first Labour prime minister in 14 years and the eighth overall.

Following the meeting, the King’s spokesman stated that the King had requested that Sir Keir create a new administration.

He stated that Sir Keir accepted His Majesty’s offer and kissed hands upon his appointment as prime minister and first lord of the Treasury.

Much of the country turned red overnight, with Mr Sunak declaring defeat just before 5 a.m. on Friday and Sir Keir claiming victory soon after.

Speaking on the steps of No. 10, former Prime Minister Mr Sunak stated that he would not relinquish his position as Conservative Party leader immediately but would do so once a leadership campaign began.

“Invest in your future with Webull UK – get started with free shares.”

First and foremost, I would like to apologise. “I have given this job my all,” he stated.

However, you have sent a clear signal that the government of the United Kingdom must change. And your decision is the only one that matters.

I understand your anger and disappointment and accept responsibility for this loss.

Mr Sunak also wished Sir Keir and his family well, saying, “Despite our differences in this campaign, he is a decent, public-spirited man whom I respect.

He and his family deserve our full support as they make the massive change to their new lives behind this door, as he struggles with this most demanding of tasks in an increasingly insecure world.
