Prime Minister Tony Blair set out his priorities for a historic third Labour term in government today but promised that he had "listened" and "learned" from the electorate who returned him to power with a massively reduced majority.
Mr Blair said he understood the Iraq war had been a "divisive" issue for the country but insisted that people now wanted to "move on".
Speaking on the steps of Downing Street Mr Blair said: "The great thing about an election is that you get out and talk to people for week upon week and I have listened and I have learned."
Mr Blair today went to Buckingham Palace for an audience with the Queen during which the monarch will invite him to form a new government following Labour's General Election victory.
Accompanied by his wife Cherie, Mr Blair got into a metallic grey Jaguar which formed part of a convoy which whisked him the short distance from Downing Street to the Palace.
