David Cameron delivers final Prime Minister's address

THE new Prime Minister Theresa May will begin her new job with sky-high approval ratings with the public facing a fractured opposition party helmed by Jeremy Corbyn whose ratings have hit an all-time low.

Mr Cameron said he was "delighted that for the second time in British history the new Prime Minister will be a woman, and once again a Conservative".

Samantha and the children leapt to applaud.

In a direct message to voters, she said: "I know you are working around the clock, I know you are doing your best and I know that sometimes life can be a struggle".

David Cameron bowed out of his final Prime Minister's Questions today with touching remarks and a reference to one of his most famous one-liners. And also willing on this place.

The ratings of Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn also nosedived, as just 24 percent approve his work, while 65 said they were dissatisfied. "He's been kicked so many times but he says 'keep going it's only a flesh wound.' I admire that".

Reflecting on the power of politicians to drive through change, Mr Cameron went on: "The last thing I'd say is that you can achieve a lot of things in politics, you can get a lot of things done". Some of the most passionate lines were about this: "let me finish by saying this: the spirit of service is one of this country's most remarkable qualities", and "for me politics has always been bout public service in the national interest".

It was a reference to his first-ever PMQs as newly-elected Tory leader in 2005, when he famously taunted then-Labour PM Tony Blair.

President Barack Obama has arrived at Spain's Royal Palace to meet with King Felipe VI. As for the election, he said, that is for the American people to ultimately decide.

"He is reminding me of the black knight in Monty Python's Holy Grail".

In the pair's final exchange, Mr Cameron sought to put a final rumour to bed - that he does not love Larry the Downing Street cat. And he held up "photographic evidence" of it - a picture of him with Larry sitting on his lap.

"I'm told that there are lots of leadership roles out there at the moment".

"There's the England football team... there's Top Gear... there's even, across the big pond a role which needs filling..." they roared and jeered in the Commons. When asked if they were happy or unhappy with the Labour leader, 48 per cent of Labour supporters said they were unhappy compared to 45 per cent who reported being happy with Mr Corbyn.

"Sadly I can't take Larry with me - he belongs to the house and the staff love him very much".

Theresa May, who is set to become the United Kingdom's prime minister, saw the support of the majority of 55 percent of those interviewed, who said she had "what it takes to be a good Prime Minister".

But he also added: "The Prime Minister's legacy will undoubtedly be that he has taken us to the brink of being taken out of the European Union so we will not be applauding his premiership on these benches".
