It’s straight to work for Britain’s 58th Prime Minister. Following his triumphant romp to victory, Sir Keir Starmer solemnly vowed in his maiden speech from the Downing Street lectern: “Our work is urgent. And we begin it today.” Mere hours later, soon-to-be cabinet ministers began to strut through the famous black door.

Angela Rayner secured her position as deputy prime minister and housing secretary, while Rachel Reeves made history by becoming the first female Chancellor. Despite earlier rumours of potential competition, David Lammy waltzed into the antiquated splendour of the Foreign Office, an architectural time-capsule of Britain’s former imperial heyday. Meanwhile, Yvette Cooper – one of just a handful of MPs with prior ministerial experience – has taken on the poisoned chalice of the Home Office.
