Completing the smooth and safe transition of government that the Westminster system ensures, David Cameron arrives at Downing Street within little more than an hour of the departure of the former Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
This transition takes several months in the United States.
This usually happens on the evening of the election or the following morning. Unusually no party emerged with a majority from the 2010 election , so until one emerged Mr. Brown continued in office.
The Queen is central to the system, ensuring that the politicians cannot act without her approval. And that is only given if what is proposed is within the constitution.
