David Cameron: Farewell my feline friend

Theresa May officially became Britain's prime minister after meeting with Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday.

Mr Cameron concluded: "It has been the greatest honour of my life to serve our country as Prime Minister over these last six years and to serve as leader of my party over 11 years".

The former Prime Minister was given an nearly five minute standing ovation as he left the House of Commons after attending his answering of his final Prime Minister's Questions session with Mrs May seated behind him as Home Secretary for the last time. He looks the part - but some suggest he's not so great at catching mice.

"The rumor is that I don't love Larry. I do".

Cameron's public service in the national interest included going into a Coalition which focused on the economy for its first few years.

Speaking of David Cameron: with every victor there has to be a loser, and before Theresa May could move into 10 Downing, the old prime minister's family had to get rousted out. His daughters Nancy and Florence were seen to give their father a wave and cheer him on during the session.

Quoting a line from his first PMQs appearance, when he faced Tony Blair as leader of the opposition, his final words were: "I was the future once".

"A rat, completely unchallenged", a BBC anchor said.

Our correspondent said Queen Elizabeth was likely to ask the new PM, who will be the 13th leader of her reign, about her "intentions and programme" for government.

Tory sources said Boris Johnson had won his surprise promotion to Foreign Secretary after offering to back Mrs May for the leadership while he was still a candidate in return for her promising to stand aside later.

The 15-minute conversation took place this afternoon and No 10 described it as a "warm call starting their relationship working together".

It was a mostly good-natured session in which numerous questioners thanked Cameron for his six years of service as prime minister.

Larry moved into 10 Downing in 2011 after being recruited from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home for his ability to catch rodents.

The June 23 referendum vote for "Brexit" not only made Cameron's own position untenable but left both Britain and the European Union facing years of uncertainty as they try to forge new rules on trade, investment, migration and a string of other key areas.

Davis will be responsible for negotiating Britain's withdrawal from the bloc with European leaders while former defense secretary Liam Fox was given a newly-created worldwide trade ministry.

Meanwhile, Danny Kinahan, the Ulster Unionist MP for South Antrim, suggested Mr Cameron could fill another leadership position once he has left Number 10. Get more Spectator for less - just £12 for 12 issues.
