Newly elected PM Starmer vows to rediscover UK identity

Newly elected Prime Minister Keir Starmer stressed that Britain needed to rediscover its identity.

He made these comments in his first address outside his new office at 10 Downing Street after Labour Party wins historic majority in a parliamentary election.

“It is surely clear to everyone that our country needs a bigger reset, a rediscovery of who we are, because no matter how fierce the storms of history, one of the greatest strengths of this nation has always been our ability to navigate a way to calmer waters,” he said.

“This depends upon politicians, particularly those who stand for stability and moderation, as I do.”

Starmer vowed that his government will fight every day until people star believing again.

“From now on, you have a government unburdened by doctrine, guided only by the determination to serve your interest. To defy those quietly those who have written our country off.

“You have given us a clear mandate, And we will use it to deliver change.”

His remarks came after King Charles III formally appointed him as prime minister during an audience at Buckingham Palace.

A photograph released by the palace showed the monarch shaking hands with Starmer, whose party won a landslide election victory.

The king earlier accepted the resignation of Conservative leader Rishi Sunak.
