‘The Starting Gun’ – Millbank, SW1 (0855)

Portents for the inaugural speech. Approaching Westminster and noting a police helicopter circling , foot patrols and a man wearing a red ‘Bomb Boom’ puffa jacket talking to a police woman in the middle of the roundabout. Across the span of Lambeth Bridge a banner proclaims ‘Bridges Not Walls’. The union flag over parliament remains unresponsive in the cold, clear and still morning.
