Downing Street’s new first lady blooms in her new role

Sir Keir Starmer‘s wife Victoria was seen for the first time in public since her husband became Prime Minister on Saturday afternoon.

She was spotted at Sandown Park Racecourse in Esher today dressed in a colourful green dress and dark emerald earrings on a gold chain, which matched her necklace.

Lady Victoria was there to watch the Coral-Eclipse, one of British horseracing’s most prestigious races, on day two of the Coral Summer Festival.

Sir Keir’s wife – who has vowed to ‘lead her own life’ in No10 – was seen standing with a friend while holding a raceday programme.

Today, Keir Starmer warned of ‘tough decisions’ looming and tried to stop people calling him ‘PM’ today as he kicked off his Red revolution.

At his first press conference in Downing Street, the Labour leader said journalists could call him ‘Keir’ as he acknowledged that his government will be ‘judged on actions not on words’.

He said the government will need to make ‘tough decisions and take them early’ – saying that there would be ‘raw honesty’ about what needs to be done, although he denied that meant tax hikes.

Instead he stressed that crime could be an area, after it emerged his new prisons minister has suggested two-thirds of people in jail should not be there. Sir Keir said there were ‘too many prisoners, not enough prisons’.

Sir Keir also confirmed that the Rwanda policy pursued by Rishi Sunak was ‘dead and buried’.

Asked if he was getting used to being referred to as ‘Prime Minister’, Sir Keir chuckled and said: ‘I’m very happy to be called Keir or Prime Minister.’

His wife ‘Lady Vic’, as she is known fondly in party circles, was missing from the election campaign completely.

Party insiders have claimed that her absence was to protect the couple’s children because they are ‘completely freaked out by the idea of being in Downing Street and the public eye’.

Mr and Mrs Starmer married 17 years ago – but their relationship had a rocky start, and falling in love, let alone a marriage and children, couldn’t have been more far off when a young Sir Keir questioned the quality of her work.

Mrs Starmer, then a lawyer and now an occupational therapist who plans to continue to work in the NHS, went berserk at the arrogant young barrister because her drafting was perfect.
