Starmer in as UK prime minister after Labour trounces Conservatives

British Prime Minister Keir Starmer said he would lead a “government of service” on a mission of national renewal in his first official remarks Friday after his Labour Party swept to power in a landslide victory after more than a decade in opposition.

Mr. Starmer acknowledged in his first speech outside 10 Downing St. that many people are disillusioned and cynical about politics, but said his government would try to restore faith in government.

“My government will fight every day until you believe again,” Mr. Starmer said as supporters cheered him on outside 10 Downing St.
