New PM

Mrs May is our new Prime Minister and in her first breath has spoken values that the kingdom would be celebrating if even one of them were to be enfleshed. And truly, truly, I hope all of them are. These are the words that will shape the government against which it shall be measured. But it would be a real game changer if, across party, community, neighbourhood, each of us chose to repeat these words and then envision them in whatever community we are in. Here's what Mrs May said:

"This means fighting against the burning injustice that if you're born poor you will die on average nine years earlier than others," she said.

For an "ordinary working class family", she added, "life is much harder than many people in Westminster realise".

Speaking directly to people who were "just managing", she said: "The government I lead will be driven, not by the interests of the privileged few, but by yours. We will do everything we can to give you more control over your lives.

"When we take the big calls, we'll think not of the powerful, but you.

"When we pass new laws, we'll listen not to the mighty, but to you. When it comes to taxes, we'll prioritise not the wealthy, but you.

"When it comes to opportunity, we won't entrench the advantages of the fortunate few, we will do everything we can to help anybody, whatever your background, to go as far as your talents will take you."

Wow. What just happened?
